Steering Rod Boots for Cessna Aircraft
These bad boys can take the abuse!
McFarlane steering rod boots are Kevlar/fiberglass blend fabric. The fatigue resistance of Kevlar is uniquely mated with the fire resistance of fiberglass.
Cessna 182 boot failure occurs from radiant heat off of the exhaust system and flexing with the steering system. Cessna original boots are manufactured with a fragile fiberglass base material and peroxide cured silicone that becomes stiff and brittle. This system offers poor resistance to flexing fatigue which causes premature boot failure.
The 182 boot must be free from holes and leaks to prevent carbon monoxide from entering the cabin. It is normal for the exhaust system to leak exhaust at the component joints. Leaks in the firewall will allow exhaust and carbon monoxide to enter the cabin.
