    TBM retracts for Al Masters DO-335

    Hello Gents,

    Has anyone tried to use the Troy Built DO-335 electric retracts in a Al Masters DO-335? TBM is 83 in versus 81 for Al Masters. Very close in size. I am finishing a Al Master plane and need to fix retracts. The TBM seems a natural choice. Please advise your experience.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Dave,

    I have TBM eRetracts for their Do 335. Chances are it will fit your bird. Have a look-see http://vimeo.com/47126424

    If U think they will work, I can measure them for you.

    Yes...I think they will work..Can you measure the strut lengths and wheel diameters. Also, is the nose retract 110 degree so it extends forward?

    Thanks a bunch for you response and assistance. I appreciate it. It would be nice to know that these retracts will fit before I spend the funds.
