MODEL SR22

NOSE GEAR
1. DESCRIPTION The nose gear consists of a tubular steel strut attached to the engine mount. The free castering nose wheel’s maximum turning arc is 216 degrees (108 degrees either side of center). Shock absorption is provided by a series of stacked, polymer pucks which react against the engine mount. Steering is accomplished by differential application of the main gear brakes. The wheel, axle, tire and tube, wheel bearing, and seal are mounted on the nose gear.
