Dimensions of the Nose Gear Support?

Post by 282ex » Wed Jun 05, 2019 7:49 pm

Well, it seems the original builder of the project I bought went off book. I need to build a new Nose Gear Support and not being successful getting dimensions from CAT. Anyone able to provide some dimensioning of their NGS?

Thanks in advance!

I've attached the part of the manual I have for the nose gear support. There are a few measurements in SB056 that are in there, if that's of any help.

Some of that part is going to be buried under my dash but if you'll help describe what dimensions you need, if I can get to it, I'll attempt to measure it for you.

Thanks Phil. Looking for width, height against firewall, where torque tube support holes start, position of misc holes. Appreciate what you can get, I know it's a pain. Attached is what I'm unwinding from one of the previous builders. I was told the NGS is a structural component and with an IO-540 that's going to hang off the front, I dont think I care to take chances.

I just heard from Darrell from CAT, problem solved. Thanks for your offer to help Phil, that was cool of you.

Oh, good. I have some measurements from when I was in the hangar yesterday and hadn’t posted those with pics yet, but Darrell’s will be much more exact than mine :D

Darrell also confirmed the the NGS is a critical structure component.
