I had to salvage 2 set-screws off the nose gear for the retracts. The nose gear doesn't come with a mounting strut, although the mains do. I can send it to you but you'd have to find some set screws and a 5mm strut. I figured I'd keep the axle in case I bent one. But I'd sacrifice that for you no problem. If you have a fastenal u can match the remaining set screw to the others you'd need.

What's your address?
