7.6.1 Main Gear Pulley Installation

This entry is part 20 of 39 in the series 07 - Landing Gear

Because of the amount of force the main gear pulleys receive, a significant amount of reinforcement is needed. This is accomplished with a pair of gussets on either side of the pulleys and numerous layups.

Gussets and layups.

Once cured, the pulleys are installed and checked for fit, remove, file some of the bulkhead away to allow movement, put the pulleys back in place and repeat… multiple times. This took most of the day.

But eventually, its cleaned up and the pulley assembly is permanently installed.
