I think that with Grove supplying axles, Desser the rubber parts, and either Jay or Randy's wheels and brakes - we have a set.

Excellent work people, simply excellent....less than 24 hours!

Let me know if you need the brake pads. Small item I know, but happy to send them to you.

Default Still Need Wheels and Brakes - Clevelands


Although Jay VERY generously offered us a complete set of wheels and brakes off of his C-180, they are the heavy-duty McCauleys, and not the Clevelands that are going to fit the wheel pants that Van provided (after building them with his own hands). What we need are set of Cleveland 6.00x6's, like you'd find on one of the Grumman singles.

PLEASE take a look around your hangars - this is going to be a heck of an expense if we have to buy them, and frankly, the donations of cash have been far eclipsed but eh donations of time from many RV volunteers, and of parts by our many vendors. The clock is rapidly ticking down toward Sun n' Fun, and we really want to have this airplane looking the way Van intended - and we can't do that without the right sized wheels.

Somewhere among the 15,000 members of VAF, we shodul be able to come up with these things....
