Corrosion on Landing Gear & Lift Strut


Hello everybody from Madrid, Spain.

During the process of putting back in flight my PA18-150, I found some corrosion on the upper side of Rh Fitting installation Landing gear & lift strut (20671-1 of sketch 12184).
I’m attaching some pictures.

I believe that I have to measure the deep of missing material. I’ll do it in a couple of weeks, but it seems is not too deep.

I’d like to recall to the experience of members, and try to resolv if this fitting is within limits or it needs to be repaired, replaced, etc. In this case how. Or if you recommend some other soluction.

Many thanks in advance
