Default Airfield B-25 Right Retract

Just finished my silver Airfield B-25 and all electric functions work fine, EXCEPT MY RIGHT RETRACT. Have sequenced my retracts
six times and all doors and nose and left retract work fine. My RIGHT RETRACT REFUSES TO DROP DOWN.

NEED HELP WHAT DO YOU ADVISE? BEST, LNL

I don't have this plane so bare with...

Failure of a retract to move is typically use to the mechanism hanging along the slide mechanism.

Sometimes oiling this area is all that is required to fix the problem.

Other times a light sanding to smooth out burrs, etc. will also fix the problem.

I pulled wiring harness out and pushed on the connectors, and flipped the retract switch a couple of times and, voila, all of the
retracts worked. Let's hope this continues. Best, LNL

I know some may complain that this will gunk up the works, but I've used pretroleum jelly to keep the mechanism lubricated on these plastic retracts.

So far it seems to work well.
