Default New to retracts, need help with parts definition

What do the parts trunnion , pin etc. refer to in the retract description ? Is there a diagram somewhere that identifies all these part that are part of the retract specs? Thanks

go to robart.com, they have diagrams of all their retracts. Trunnion is the part that rotates and holds the strut.

Trunnion is the thing that rotates in the retract when the actuator pushes on it and your gear leg is attached to. The trunnion pin is the axle
