    The yak will tip over if you use stock landing gear. I will reuse the swept forward gear. Already has wheels on it.

    I pulled my 3W-106 from its shipping box in order to line up the firewall drilling. As always shiny and clean after a trip to Aircraft International.

    It ingested some dirt during my hard landing so best to have it went over by Gerhard. I bought the 106 used 15 years ago, still a strong engine.
