    skywagon gear leg weights

    I'm curious if anyone has information re the weight of the various versions of the C180/185 gear legs.
    I was hoping it would be on The Landing Gear Works' website,
    but they don't even seem to list the weight of their titanium gear.

    FWIW there's 4 versions of the Cessna steel gear:
    "wheels aft" gear 1953-55 p/n 0741001-1 & -2
    early wheels forward (1955-56) aka "light duty" p/n 0741001-3 & -4
    2nd version wheels fwd (1957-63) p/n 0741001-5 & -6
    last version (1964-on, also common to C185) aka "heavy duty" p/n 0741001-7 & -8.

    My 53 model was switched over to the HD gear legs some years ago.
    This was done along with a number of other mods & the airplane was reweighed afterward,
    so there's no specific individual weight info on any of those mods.
