Installing the new nose gear on the 750

It was decide to install the new nose gera on the 750 im working on  and i wanted to tell how easy it is.

 Removal on the old style gear already installed was quite easy and sent that out to Zenith for modifing .

They did a fast turnaround and in a few days it was back to me . I had to prime and paint it  and install was easy

 Putting the bunge back on was easy but I do have the Rotax 912 installed and i have a lot or room to work , might be more dificult on other engine types

 I didnt find any info on installing the new gear to the modified leg

 but all i did was center the leg side to side and held it up on the table and put a level on the gear upper gear leg the holes had already been drilled in the upper leg so I just clamped and drilled into the lower leg

 

 

 

 

 

epoxy primed and painted          (750 struts in the background)

 

 

 

 

 

I noticed on all the installed pics that the slat was toward the front so I did the same

 

a lot stronged unit and boy those 800 x 6  just fit !

Yes the slit goes forward for a lightweight tow bar that Zenith sells.
