Default Tailwheel parts...

Does anyone know what exactly the tailwheel parts will be listed as on the inventory list? Or to put it another way, are the socket weldment (WD-409?) and the strut listed separately or included in the "full swivel tailwheel" item?

I'm asking because when I ordered my fuselage I asked Van's to leave off the fork, springs, and wheel in anticipation of using an aftermarket part (essentially, leaving just the weldment and the strut). I may have just misplaced the parts in the shop, but I wanted to check and make sure I didn't miss something here, as I didn't see either item listed on the inventory list but I could swear I unpacked them...

Default Same here

I did the same thing and can not locate the mount. Did you find yours or have to order it?

We have the tapered rod springs, if that helps.

Of course, we have all of the other tailwheel bits too.
