    Default Cessna strut piston issue

    I have a question for you guys. I have a 63 Cessna 205 and it has a heavy duty nose fork installed on it. When I was getting ready to reseal it, I noticed that with the rubber removed to allow it to bottom out, that it would hit up top before bottoming out below. With about a half inch or more to spark. Obviously this isn't good. I have no idea why it was installed with a different piston than the original when they installed the heavy duty fork.

    I obviously need a shorter one, but I don't know how much is interchangeable with other Cessnas. Everything is original except for the piston. I'd really rather not pay thousands to get a whole 205 nose gear if an old 172 piston would work. They have part numbers for the piston and fork assembly, but not just the piston. Anybody know anything that may help me?

    Thanks!

    Look in the Illustrated Cessna Parts Catalog for " optional heavy duty nose fork Cessna part # 1243623-2 and nose gear shock strut assembly,"
