Wouldn't help if the tire is catching on the outer edge of the fuse, but mine was getting about 3/4 of the way in before catching so it works on mine.
I think I copied your idea Kurt using something to "steady" the rod.

Late post, but why not just use a reversed servo instead of a servo reverser or re-soldering those dang touchy lil pita ckt boards ... just a thought, I am in process of building my P-38 still !. I had got one of those redbull pieces of junk from towers and what a waste of my monies it has been. I am working on the nose steering retracts myself..will post pics of what I come up with eventually... DJ
