Tailwheel, WRONG

So I started re-building the Scott 3200 Tailwheel, refinishing the spring and such. I have the pictures of when I took the tailwheel apart and I was going to reinstall the same way until I read something in the 3200 manual that made me question something.

My original setup had 4 grade 5 bolts holding the leaf spring to the fuselage, but the 3200 manual mentioned two U-bolts. I went to the Univair site and verified the same.

So when you re-install your tailwheel ensure you have the U-bolts.
