Landing gear
Author Last Post
I think I paid the same price for 185 gear legs in 1999. Unfortunately, the pair that I purchased were sprung so I had to do it all over again.

I paid $4 K for a set of 1974 / 185 gear legs and 6x800 tires back in 1998.

Thanks for all the replies. After speaking with a few folks, I'll pass on this aircraft. It's not financially worth it.

There are a few that are a little over $10 G's difference in asking price. That being the difference, a set of legs is much more than that.

I'll add pictures when I pull the trigger on a bird next year.

Thanks again.

When I get back to the US, I'm going to sell the Stinson.

Be careful what you buy. A lot of the gear legs off of 180/185s have been sprung. If you know what to look for, it is fairly easy to tell with a set off of a plane.

My recommendation is to contact Tom Anderson.
