Short Description:  Tow Bar Installation

Since the weather has been bad and I still have not been able to get my transition training completed, I decided to go ahead and install the tow bar I had ordered a couple of months ago. Installation was fairly easy. Locate hole location on nose gear leg. Drill hole. Slide the short piece of 1/2" pipe in the hole and drill another hole in the gear leg thru the pipe perpendicular to the first hole. First photo shows holes drilled and the pipe with the bolt thru it installed. It is somewhat hard to get all this done without scraping some of the paint off the gear leg. Will need to do some toiuchup work later. Second photo shows tow bar attached. And last photo just shows overall view of tow bar. Seems to work ok and is much easier than trying to move airplane around by getting under cowling and turning nose gear by hand.
