    Looks like over 10 people downloaded it on here and didn't bother to say thanks.
    I'll try a re-up.

    Hello All,

    I don't know if these drawings will help, but here goes. Pardon the quality. There is an unresolved issue with the scanner I am using.
    The dimensions were very useful when I built my Wildcats for Combat Flight Simulator.

    Have Fun!
    - Ivan.

    I am repairing an F4F Wildcat.

    I need the roller chain that is used to raise and lower the landing gear. Production of this chain was discontinued some time after WW2.

    The chain is designated as 148X1/4 or 50X1/4. I believe these are Diamond Chain Part Numbers.

    I can use any amount.

    Please advise if you have or know someone who may have some old inventory.

    First, thanks to Ivan for the drawings.
    Second: Leored, take a look to the job of Rojas Bazan, a man who makes all aluminium models for museums in EEUU.
    I´m working in something alike, but just starting an approach, if I have something to share, wanna post here.

    Good luck.

    You're Welcome VALENGO,

    Let me know if you are looking for detail photos of a particular section. I have a few books that might be useful, but there is way too much stuff to scan and post.

    Post some photos of your work when you are ready!
    - Ivan.
