Brief Description: Raise the fuse and start the gear attachment proce
We got the fuselage raised and supported onb some cinderblocks and jackstands I then Had to remove the inside brackets and wear plates that I previously installed w/o the gear. Dont know why I did that to begin with! Installed the inner most wearplates and sadlle with required bolt hardware but have not torqued down. Installed the outboard wearplates and then the gearleg on each side. I have stopped because I found I havent enough room to install the outside saddles and will need to remove the leg to get it on. I also know that I wont be able to torque two bolts properly on the inside saddle because they have no room for a socket to fit. Most builders will torque from the bolt head underneath instead but its a good practice to hace a washer under the boly head when torqueing from that side. Of course I dont have enough washers of that size to do that!! Rats!! to be continued!
