i have a set of 7/16" struts and need to make the 661 series into a 663 series... or 2 3/4"-3" wheel to a 4" wheel.
anyone know if you can purchase or order just the offset oleo?

Re: Robart Robostrut 7/16"

Parts can likely be ordered from Robart but their shipping to Canada is ridiculously high . AND I mean high; at least the last time I tried to order . Turned me right off. I ended using a spare olio nose gear assembly I had from a H9 Twin Otter. A little mod to use a smaller when and ended up being a better product.
You might consider ordering from your local or on line hobby store. I felt like they didn’t want to deal to individuals but only thru hobby stores.
Might even be cheaper ordering a whole new set and keep or sell off what you have.

Just a few considerations .

Thanks for the note. yeah i've had mixed dealings with them in the past and actually got these struts from a hobby store. i suppose i could order the entire assembly if the offset isn't available.

Hey Jay. Try posting in the wanted section for some 663's. Sometimes lady luck smiles on you and someone has what you're looking for.

Re: Robart Robostrut 7/16"

Works out to about $45 cad on your credit card. Shockers to say the least. As I said in other forums ; believe they really want to work with the hobby stores and not us folks.
Will leave it at that. When I tried to order parts ; I tried to see if they would mail first class mail . Wouldn't do it.
You might try some of the larger mail order Canadian hobby stores to see if they will order and pricing in Cad $
