Assembly Instructions for your Tailwheel Towbar

TAILWHEEL TRANSPORTER and TAILWHEEL TRANSPORTER II

TOOLS NEEDED: 7/16” wrench, 1/2” wrench, flat screwdriver, pliers

  1. Verify that all the hardware shown in the following photo is included in the hardware bag.

     
  2. Making sure that the Latch is on the left side, slide the upper section of the Pushbar into the lower section, align the holes and secure with one of the Handle Joining Bolts and Locknuts. Tighten securely with a 7/16” wrench.
     
  3. Using the Pushbar Attaching Hardware, bolt the assembled Pushbar to the Main Frame by inserting the two bolts from the bottom of the Main Frame through the Pushbar Mounting Plate and securing each with the Flat Washer, Locking Washer and Nut. Tighten securely with a 1/2” wrench.
     
  4. Slide the upper section of the Lifting Arm into the lower section, align the holes and secure with the other Handle Joining Bolt and Locknut. Tighten securely with a 7/16” wrench.
     
  5. To assemble the Lifting Arm to the Main Frame, begin by holding it in position and installing the Return Spring onto the Spring Tabs. One Spring Tab is located on the Rear Axle and the other is located on the back of the Lifting Foot. Once the Return Spring is attached to both Spring Tabs, slide the Lifting Arm about halfway onto the Lifting Arm Pivot (this is the larger of the 2 studs on the Main Frame). Now place the Front Link of the Lifting Foot on the 1/2” pivot on the Main Frame and slide the Lifting Arm the rest of the way onto the 2 pivots. Secure both with the Washers and Cotter Pins provided.
     
  6. Adjust the Lifting Arm Stop Screw (already installed in Main Frame) so that the lowest part of the Lifting Arm is approximately 1/4” off the ground. Tighten the nut on the Lifting Arm Stop Screw securely with a 1/2” wrench.


     
  7. Using the above picture as a guide,  a screwdriver and the Allen Wrench provided, adjust the Front Carrier Stud to fit your tailwheel. Your TAILWHEEL TRANSPORTER is now ready for use.

 

 

  • Please remember to check the air in the tires of your TAILWHEEL TRANSPORTER regularly.  They should be inflated to 30 psi.  Low air pressure in the tires on your TAILWHEEL TRANSPORTER will make it much more difficult to push!
