Brief Description:  Landing Gear

Today was a big day!!! Tracey (my bride) was awesome, once again, and volunteered to help me get the plane on its gear. I already had the tailwheel on. We got the engine hoist and a giant tow strap to the front of the plane. I weaved it thru the engine mount. Gotta admit, I was a little nervous as we started getting airborn of the fuselage dolly. Things could roll or pitch. Tracey jumped in and helped stabilize the front of the plane from rolling. I tried getting the first gear on, but I still had slight interference from the fuselage. Emergency action with the Dremmel took care of that. I was able to get the gear slipped into the socket, then get the bolt started. "Wahooo", exclaimed Tracey! I raced to the other side and had no interference. The leg went into place and again with the bolt. Another, "wahoo"!
We took a minute to look at the sight of things and smiled. The back of the plane was still on the dolly, so I went back and easily lifted the aft fuselage. Tracey rolled the dolly, then the plane was on all three wheels for the first time ever! I was so excited and thankful Tracey was there for help and to share in the excitement. I was so excited, I rolled the plane outside for many more looks.

Engine is next!
