I am looking for a nose gear steering arm that will go "around" a 6mm nose gear. This is for a fixed gear not retracks. Any suggestions on what wll work?

Does it have to be 6mm..... Dubro has quite a few 4mm options, arms and complete setups for 6 beans... with 4mm being listed as heavy duty

4 millimeter = 0.157 480 314 96 inch
6 millimeter = 0.236 220 472 44 inch

Yes, the nose gear shaft is 6mm. The Dubro won't work. I even tried drilling it.

That is some huge wire. What size airplane is this going on? Any possibility of soldering on an arm?
