    Default Scott Tailwheel Question

    Is this a Scott Model 3000 tail-wheel assembly?

    It uses a 6 X 2:00 tire. Bushings, bearings, castings, pin, and axle are all in very good condition. It does not have detent. All it needs is a new tire.







    Thanks,

    Forrest,

    Thanks, that tire will work nicely.

    Currently have a Scott 3000 tailwheel assembly on the Vagabond with a 6X2:00 tire, and like it, but it's very old and parts are hard to find.

    Found the Scott tail-wheel assembly in the photos that's in very good condition except for the tire.

    The spare Scott tailwheel assembly in the photos has D-137181 and TA8B or P on the ID tag, but not much to be found on internet about this unit. It takes the same bearings/axle as my Scott 3000 and has the worn out 6X2:00 tire installed. Not sure about the model or if I can have it installed legally with new tire during next annual. It weighs 6.8 pounds and the Scott 3000 currently on the Vagabond weighs about 6 pounds.

    After reading very informative thread will discuss with local A&P/IA about installation of the above tail-wheel in photos during next annual using "AC 23-27 Parts Substitutions for Antique and Vintage Aircraft".
