Default Ultimate Motorwerks Rear Wing Lift Cylinder Repair Kit

Over the years I have received a number of emails asking how to fix or repair leaking and failing wings. I decided to approach the repair in a different method. I have CNC'd a rebuildable LIFT cartridge. The cartridge assy will be available for those that want to service one or both leaking wing cylinders. The main reason for the wing failures is due to a couple of 10 cent orings. The orings get flat spotted and a leak slowly develops. Replace the orings and you are up and running.

My repair kit allows owners that want to retain the factory wing assembly AND factory look and operation. I acknowledge the fact that there are other options available in the marketplace. UMW's option is to allow a rebuildable solution for owners and shops.

NOTE: I am looking for two individuals (beta testers)that have tried to bleed there system and have a working knowledge of how the wing hydraulics/system works. The two individuals would need to require the ability to take pictures and documentations as to "there" repair and assembly.

Lastly, I am working on the electric pump assy component repair kit. With the two kits, we will be able to maintain and service our wings for a minimal investment.

For those interested please email me for details and pricing (introductory pricing is available). [email protected]

. Kevin, good idea. Do you have any pictures of the flat spot?

You could try calling Marios automotive hydraulics in pompano Florida. He repaired mine and may have some.

NP dave! you deserve it.. that 4" kit is ( and has been ) on my wish list since its intro! it's really just that my oem refuses to die! ( must be some kind of a "record"?! ) i still have my eBay ( "fixed wing kit".. aka a "150$ bag of bolts!" ) sitting in its original shipping box

btw you and ( now ) kevin here with his "solution", i'm sure the market for spoiler repair options is all sewn up and i commend you both. cheers.
