Hey, FWIW
These fit my RV3B as well !! - bought a set last year ... keeps the plane stable for any wheel/tire maintenance.
I've got a couple pics.
Thanks,Mike

This is the first I have seen of these, looks like a really slick solution. Add them to my wish-list.

Appears you have to open the brake line to install, correct?

You don't have to remove the brake line but you will need to do a little readjustment on the line for clearance.

I just installed my new set ... love these guys! (I had to jack up the gear via the engine hoist point to get them on). Very nice product. Question: why the moon-shaped spacer, rather than two individual cylinders/spacers? (barely seen in photo; behind the wheel pant bracket between Matco and the gear leg)
