Default Steerable retract nose gear-help!

O.K., call me stupid but I can't figure out the way to connect the linkage. Got a Rohm air nose gear with a small steering arm, with two tiny holes-one on each side if the strut. Obviously something like a ball link or something connects, but can't see how it would rotate 90 deg up. Or, is it some type of wire pull pull system. The plans show the retract servo in front of the gear -in front of the raised nose wheel. Thanks, Bill S.

Default It's pull-pull..

I used Spider wire fishing line, any pull-pull cable will work.

It will steer when the gear is down, then goes slack when the gear is up.

Here is a pic..not the best pic, I wasn't trying to get a pic of the gear linkage..

Default I knew that!

It was a test-yeah, right! Thanks for the pic, it makes sense. Is there any way though to use a rigid type of rod with the nose gear?
