Tailwheel Chains

In my continuing efforts to improve on Van’s cheesy tailwheel setup, I decided to replace the cheap teardrop clips with real AN hardware and the zinc coated sash chain with stainless sash chain.

Parts used include two AN115-21 shackles, two feet of #35 stainless steel sash chain from McMaster-Carr, two AN42B-4 eye bolts, and four AN3 bolts drilled for safetying with AN cotter pins. A more robust installation for sure and better looking to boot!
