Locking Pin and Spring

(18 customer reviews)

The locking pin and spring are wear parts of the tailwheel assembly. Eventually, they wear out and have to be replaced, or they accidentally get shot across the hangar and lost during maintenance. Order one here. Fits Screaming Eagle, Doug Bell, Van’s, JDAir, and similar tailwheels using a 1/4″ square locking pin.

Comes polished, profiled and ready to install. Includes pin and spring.

  1. Michael B.

    Easy to install, about a 20 minute job. Raises tail about 1″ and lowers nose about the same. Sounds incredible but that small amount really improves ground handling.

  2. ERICK

    Always easy to deal with you guys.

  3. Edward C.

    Does exactly as noted. Fixed the non engagement problem

    All tail wheel parts I bought recently and in years past have been high quality, good fit, and worked as good or better than advertised. Thanks Flyboys!

    Quick delivery, quality parts, no complaints

  7. Marc B.

    I installed the new locking pin, spring, and arm. I’m very happy with the quality of these parts. I also installed the.020 shim which completely took out the vertical slop. Also a very neat feature is the new arm with the tie down ring. I highly recommend these products and the attention and service given by Flyboy accessories.

    While reinstalling my tailwheel after painting, I slipped and let it drop. That launched the pin and spring toward that black hole where socks and such disappear. I found the spring but no trace of the pin. I have some thought to making the pin since I have a mill and lathe but decided it wasn’t worth my time. I was right. I ordered on Sat and received them on Tues. They fit perfectly and I spent my time on more productive pursuits.
