There is a service bulletin on the nose gear stop.

Yes, it twisted. I'll take better pics this weekend!

I don't think it is - But I'll take better pictures and let you all decide. I'm not a builder, so any input you all can give is much appreciated!!!

Thanks!

Jim

Jim,

I should first say welcome to the group/family! Here is a crop of the nose wheel stop in the plans.

From drawing C1.

I took a closer look at the video and it is backwards, no doubt. There is a Service Bulletin out on that by Vans. SERVICE BULLETIN 14-12-22 Go to the Van site to look at this and how yours is installed.
