no ihad a leaking fill valve and retract valve ...they sent repalcments i just made my own main gear wires from !/8" piano wire. the nose gear i use a better 3mm wire and ground my own slot for the set screw i only grind about 160 degrees as i dont need it to turn much more than that.i retaped my struts and put 6-32 screws in and that help some with the play in the struts.

my fill valve leaks. But whats funny, if I pump the tank to 120psi it will take about 5 hours to leak with gear retracted. 100psi and it leaks down right away. I should pull mine apart and clean it up and pull the spring open more.

Keith I gave up on my control valve. I ordered the Robart. My fill valve seems okay. Man, I hope so anyways.

will i have had no proplems with the stock hose . the fill valve is fine now .it just had a piece of the thread stuck in the flapper valve. if your going to change it use a robart. it is close to the same shape and size and fits right to the plane. i have not found the HET valve to be all that great either.
