Supplementary inspection 32-20-01 para 4D.
Nose gear bolt and fork inspection.

Eddy current check of upper torque link

Says n/a to the 152 but looking at the drawing it looks like a 152 link!!!!!!

Interesting in that the only ones I have seen cracked are on 152's.

The design is basically the same across the 150/152 and the cause of the cracking is seized bushings causing the the link to be overloaded as the nose leg extends to full travel and back.

I suspect that Cessna have cocked up, but then what do I know.
