You may be right Bill but I think there is still some confusion here. Lets try numbering the parts for the nose gear. In the last set of pictures that you posted we'll use the one with all the parts of the nose gear layed out and start in the upper left corner. The cylinder is #1(the hydraulic shock absorber), next is part #2(the bracket that mounts around the #1), then #3 (the fork that holds the wheel), #4 (is the interior of the fork) and mounts on the wheel(#5) just like you have it, but then those 2 parts are mated to #3 with in such a way that #4 is almost totally concealed. #4 is perhaps a "feel good" piece that due to it's small size and the fact that the wheel hides most of the inside of the fork(#3) that it might just be better to forget it. I have been looking at the nose gear in the picture a few pages back and you guys(Darwin and Bill) assembled the nose gear almost exactly like the one in the picture(with the exception of #4 cause there is no equivalent). This post is almost worthless casue I'm going to redesign the nose gear today. However since the mains are still the same and this applies to them as well it wasn't a total waste.
