I'm helping a buddy prep his Glasair I RG for Return to Service after 10 years. (Long story.)

I'm an FT pilot, so have no experience with the hydraulics on the RG.

My buddy had cracked his pump housing when he first built the plane and so always had a slow leak at the pump.

He said that, in flight, the pump would come on about every 5 minutes to hold the gear up.

He found someone selling old housings. We used that to rebuilt the pump. So far the longest time we've had since bump is 25 minutes. (That's on jack stands.)

We're wondering what the typical time between bumps are in flight.

(This is the 12 volt, dual winding pump, if that matters.)

Thanks,

Mike Palmer <><
