Thanks for the prompt replies. It's going to be a week or so before I can get back to the storage spot to try to fix it. That four letter "W" word intrudes.....

I don't as it depends on the model number of legs you have from Attwood. There are a few points that can shear depending on issue so you should start at the motor and work towards the leg. Google an Attwood landing gear schematic and have it with you to help diagnos. They are all close so even if not the exact model it will help you.

If you have your Vin Jaco should be able to give you a build sheet and it might have the jack info. But yeah there are a bunch of pounds inside that can sheer as well as the arm.

It's nothing but a 1/4 x 20 bolt, 1 1/4 long with a nylon lock nut.

After much cussing and yoga contortions, I got the shear bolt replaced and tightened. Luckily it was the motor side that had sheared. I was very proud of myself, watching the landing gear go up and down until I realized that....THEY AREN'T EVEN!!

I know you told me, but in my struggle to line up the holes the two landing gear were at two different extension lengths. I need a beer! LOL

I believe it should be a grade 8 bolt. At least that is what the slide shear pins are.

Glad it was an easy fix for you, yeah you have the legs off a bit but at least you know the issue and can get them both lined up again after your beer. Thankfully being off a bit isnt' the end of the world, just hope the access isn't too bad.


dzwiss

Personally I wouldn't use a grade 8 bolt, the idea is for this bolt to break first before other items get damaged, its more then just a way to connect 2 pieces of metal it is a safety item. Not knowing what is in there to start with doesn't help but I would run a grade 3 maybe grade 5. IF your constantly breaking one I would take a step back and look at your setup, Are the legs even, any binding, maybe marking the half way point and or end so you don't bottom them out, or extend inside too far. There are lots of ways you could be breaking them. I feel a grade 8 would just be masking an issue and eventually leading to damage, unless the manufacture recommend it I wouldn't use that grade.

Everything is fixed now. I used an inspection camera to help me line up the bolt holes after I turned the square tube to even up the legs. Since the square tube not only turns around the inner shaft, but also slides side to side, doing this "blind" would have been a real trick.

I'm just glad it wasn't the other side!
