Tail wheel spring [Stinger] angle
      #12850 - 02/15/11 10:22 AM

Hi
I have put new tail wheel mount torsion leg bushings in [rubber ones] from Cessna.

I measured the vertical tail wheel swivel bolt angle and the bottom of the bolt [nut end] still points aft. [should point forward? correct?]
I think the bend in my tail wheel spring [torsion leg] has straightened out [bent straight] Does any one know how much of an angle this mount leg should have in it? Can it be bent more if the angle is not enough? What is the best way to bend it?

Thank you
Gene Bottolfsen
