A330/200/300 Nose Gear Axial Shear Pin Rating?

Tue Dec 20, 2011 7:31 am

Can anyone fill me in on the Axial and Torsional shear pin rating from Airbus for these two models.
A330 series 200 and 300,
They are normally posted in the towing section of the aircraft manual.

Quoting k8027aa (Thread starter):

Page 265-266 of the following PDF,


"A traction shear pin calibrated at 28 620 daN (64 340 lbf)"
"A torsion pin calibrated at 3 130 m.daN (27 7028 lbf.in)"
