Lang tailwheel

Post by 6673 » Mon May 13, 2019 8:01 pm

Hi all,

I installed a Lang tailwheel on my plane. The setup is: single-bend leaf spring, tension springs stretched about 1/2" and the tailwheel is new. On the jack the tailwheel comes out of steering lock fine but taxiing it's VERY difficult to get it into swivel mode during a turn to the right. Left turns go into swivel mode with no problems. Any ideas before I call Lang tech support?

Thanks.

Nick
