Repaired Nose Gear Hydraulic Actuator

After repairing the seals, glands, and O-rings in the nose gear hydraulic actuator, I hooked it up to the nitrogen bottle and tested for leaks in both travel directions.  All secure!  The actuator was installed into the airplane and the nose gear retraction test and dump valve worked flawlessly, holding in the gear-up position for several hours with no noticeable loss of pressure.
