Thanks guys, I had to take several steps back today. I accidentally had a drop of CA get away from me while repairing a former I cracked. Murphy's law dictated that it hit right on the steering arm of the nose retract. Totally my fault though.

So, that was the end of it's functional life. However, I was concerned about the nose retract because it was a cheaper one and not the Robart like the mains. So, I ordered a Robart nose retract today.

So in the long run it is probably better this way but I will not be able to make much progress for a week or so and the weather is shaping up to be perfect for Saturday. The nice thing about the Robart nose gear is it is 100 degree rotation instead of 90. I had to mount the other nose gear way up inside the fuse and at a funny angle so it would extend at the proper forward angle and still tuck up in the retracted position. The 100 degree rotation will help with the second installation.
