Nose Gear Wavy Washers

The nose wheel is supposed to have these wavy washers installed between the nut and the wheel carrier. They are there to supply tension to prevent the nose wheel from shimmying. Unfortunately, I didn't leave enough room for them when trimming the gear leg. So, a friend from my EAA chapter suggested cutting a "well" inside the nut to capture the washers.

Total Time: 5.0 hrs.
