Question for anybody that has experience building the Vario 300C gasser mechanics.

I'm working on the landing gear and from what I can tell from the instructions, 2 of the holes on each strut should line up with 2 of the 3 holes in the metal plate then I'm suppose to drill the 3rd hole. Well neither of my 2 holes line up with the metal plate. I can get one to line up but then I have a big gap between the 2 struts. and of course I'll have to drill 2 holes. The drawings in the instructions show no gap between the 2 struts. I know this may sound confusing but if you have built this mechanics, then you know what I'm talking about and asking.

Thanks! Mark

Mark,I am rebuilding a Vario Schweizer 300, and upgrading to the Zenoah 320 engine
Looking in my build plan from 4 years ago there is a note, page 17
NO 4mm Holes in frame
It should be a simple job to line up the base plate central to the skids, mark and drill
If you need photo's just ask

Thanks Peter,

That's what I pretty much figured had to be done but I just wanted to make sure before I did it. If you do have any pic's, that would be great.

Thanks for all the help! Mark
