    Brings back memories. We built our own coal fired blast furnace, cut our own gears, did the drilling and grinding, then heated and bent our own gears. The good old days....... Don.

    Grove says they will bend aluminum gear to whatever size and "gun barrel" drill the legs to eliminate a brake line. Anyone had experience with them?Name:  Grove Landing Gear.jpg

    Attached photo is N8K in early testing before inverted fuel system, new cowl, canopy, and the trademark red and white sunburst paint. Late 1952. Don

    Not sure. When Ray replaced the first cowl nose bowl with the T-Craft nose bowl, I think he went to Dzus fasteners instead. Don
