Wanting to put a better steerable tailwheel assembly on my 391b.

Picked this one up but unsure if it will work.  Can anyone tell me if it's missing some parts?  Doesn't seem to have a detent for straight ahead.


Yes it will work.  You don't need a straight ahead lock.

You do have the clutch, and even a shimy dampener

Yes it wouldbe nice to have a straight ahead lock.  But i had three Helio, and after a couple of landing the lock broke and became inoperative.  So install this stereable A frame.   A lock could be firuge out later if you really want one
