RV-12 Wheel Camber
Question please, I'm already having trouble severely wearing the outside of my new main gear tires after only 50 hours of taxi, take-off and landing time. In checking the KAI manual it only discusses toe-in/toe-out adjustment, nothing on camber. My toe-in/toe-out is neutral. In measuring the camber I'm seeing 6.9 degrees from vertical on the left wheel and 5.8 degrees on the right wheel, very obvious from just looking at the main gear on the ground. By comparison, my hangar partner's RV-8 tail-dragger only has apx. 1.5 degrees camber on both wheels.
Also, 28 PSI tire pressure per the manual seems low, also causing excess wear on the outside of the tires. I'm seeing no wear at all on the center of the treads yet.
How does this camber compare to yours and are you maintaining only 28 PSI in your tires? The only fix I can think of is adding shims B/T the lower gear legs and the axles to remove some of the camber, and increasing the tire pressure. Other ideas? I'd appreciate your response.
