Default Name this retract

Mystery nosewheel retract, Old age has done her in. The glide channel that operates the strut has broken in 2, I may try to mend it, but I was curious as to the origins of this retract system. I have not seen any made of plastic like these.

hi

my guess would be it looks like old carl goldberg retracts. I have a set unused, think they are rotating and also a three gear set unused.

good luck and happy flying

Anyone have a set for sale, or see one, I would greatly appreciate a link or contact info. Thanks guys. I did manage to hot glue the nosegear in the locked down (or Green) position and its still going strong. But I would love to watch it wizz in front of me with all three up
