Time for a new Tailwheel!

the FG tail spring is mostly running / inserted in a U channel. I just found it convenient and maybe stronger to leave it a bit larger (that's the way it was laid up) than the U chanel....to install it I just had to cut two parallel grooves .

Also....it tends to puzzle people.......

Yep - You got me on that one!  ;<)  I am not used to thinking about how Avid did the tailspring alignment - I keep looking for the sandwich clamp that Kitfox used, or a hidden bolt.   Thanks,  EDMO

This is really interesting.

Does anyone know where I can get this wheel and tyre in the UK as I would like to do this mod to my kitfox mk2.
