A significant improvement to the landing gear pin/bushing is proposed utilizing a "soft" pin and "hard" busing. In addition to the advantages forthcoming from this reversal of traditional practice, the new concept greatly extends the life of the wearing element, the "soft" pin, by achieving uniform wear of the soft anti-friction surface. The extension of life lengthens the period between regular replacement of the pin, reduces spare parts cost and improves operational readiness. Together with the advantages of the "soft" pin/ "hard" bushing over the traditional design, impressive savings in time and money can be realized.
