Title: Change the size of retract wheel.
Post by: Neal LaFrance on February 08, 2012, 02:51:49 PM
When you install 500X5 wheels and brakes the torque required to raise the gear is increased.
Solution: Purchase a pulley wheel larger in diameter than the origonal wheel. insert a hose in the V grove and wrap with cord. Drill the hole to fit the shaft, secure and you have decreased the amount of effort to retract the gear. Neal
