Nose gear strut leak (3rd repair)

Mar 11, 2022

Need some advice/suggestions. Had a shop on the feild repair my nose strut after I had a leak. it was leaking from the top of the trunion the first time. After I got it back, it leaked again after one flight. They fixed it again and it leaked again but this time from the bottom of the fork(as shown in the pic) I took it to my regular mechanic and last week he fixed it. Went in the hangar tonight and it’s leaking again from underneath again running down the side of the fork. He put a thicker gasket on but apparently it didn’t work. What should I try next. Thoughts?
