RV Gear Mod

I ordered my RV-3 Gear Legs and brackets from Vans here is a list and part number if you wish to do this mod:

U-301 RV-3 Gear leg (Use RV-4 Gear Legs for heavier Pitts) Qty 2

U-405 Axle Spacer Qty 4

U-403 Brake Flange Qty 2

VA-106 Axle Nut Qty 2

Vans Gear leg Fairings

Ok So I’ve pondered on the gear sockets for a week now and have come up with a drawing that matches the RV and Ultimate 10-300 set up attached click the link gear-leg-socket.pdf for the PDF drawing I cooked up in Solidworks 2o04.   I also added 3 more pictures of the Ultimate 10-300 drawings that confirm my socket design.
