Well, here's a problem that somebody may have a clever solution for.
The pad that supports my tailwheel spring, the one right under the tail post, is tilted slightly to one side, so the spring and tailwheel assembly are also tilted. I've had a lot of trouble with shimmy (maule, 8") and settng the caster to zero and re-fitting the bearing haven't helped much. So I'm thinking the side angle is probably the villian.
Does anybody have a sneaky shortcut way of effectively modifying the pad angle? I could build it up by welding and grind it flat, but - - -.
I'd appreciate any good ideas - Thanks!
