Things done today:
- Assembled nose gear
- Attached nose gear assembly to engine mount
Assembled the nose gear and attached it to the engine mount. I’m thinking it’s OK to attach it to the engine mount now, it was certainly easier to get all the washers in with the gear upside down. I’m hoping that I won’t need a new spring for the 915 because it’s a little heavier then the 914… I might still use the 914 anyways though.
Fork assembly with the brackets for the wheel spats. The short brackets on the main gear are the front of the gear. Also installed the M5 rivnuts in the spat brackets. The hole in the very front is for a tow bar.
There brackets are used to attach the gear to the engine mount. The bottom two fit a bit tight so I had to remove about 1/16 off the inside of them. The gear seems to turn OK now…maybe a slight bit tight.
Close up of the top of the gear.
