Just worked a bit on one of the 716 retracts tonight. Drilled the holes for the screws. Didn't have any 3mm nuts so have to buy that tomorrow. I used a plywood spacer because the wheel well isn't deep enough for the current setup, but that resulted in the angle of the strut looking a bit strange when the wheels are down. I will try to modify that tomorrow. Or what do you guys think?
I will also look for another spring to use inside the strut. The stock one is very stiff, and I don't think it will compress at all by the weight of the aircraft.

I put a small plywood spacer because the wheel bay is not deep enough with the new retracts.
The angle of the gear looks a bit funny. I might modify it back, so it is straight again.
