Cleaning landing gear struts

Recommended Posts

Good day to you all,

I would like to ask the forum for some technical help. I sale a product for cleaning landing gear struts call Strutwipe. It's a 100% lint free tightly woven cotton wipe that is saturated with either MIL-PRF-5606 or MIL-PRF-83282. When I worked for Lockheed back in the 90's, we would use 5606 for the struts. My question to the forum does the newer model C130 still use 5606 or have the struts been upgraded to 83282? Thanks for any help in advance.

Best,

Mark

We in the AF Reserves started using Mil-83282 around 1997-98 time frame. Everything that used hyd. fluid on our 81-84 H model C-130's was serviced with 83282 fluid. Serviced all landing gear struts with 83282. Never saw anymore 5606 after that. Retired in 2003 and were still using it then. Bill
