Hello Group,

I have decided to make my tailwheel conversion available to others,
which I had designed for my Pulsar many years ago. After flying my
Pulsar with a nose gear for about 40 hours and being not too pleased
with it (you all know about the problems), I moved the main gear
forward, attached a tailwheel and got rid of the nosegear. By now I
have flown it as a taildragger for almost 700 hours with no issues and
greatly enjoy it. It looks much better too.

My design differs from the standard factory Pulsar taildragger design
and offers a number of advantages. It is more robust and more suitable
for operation on rough surfaces. Because the main gear is further
forward than the factory installation, there is no tendency to nose
over with full use of the brakes. The steerable, full-swiveling
tailwheel improves ground-handling over the non-steerable nose gear
and eliminates the possibility of shimmy. With the tailspring fairing,
directional stability is improved and the crosswind capability is good
with 15-20 kts. It offers more ground clearance for the tail, which
improves visibility over the nose compared to the factory
taildraggers. The drag reduction from removing the nose gear increases
the speed by up to 5 kts.

I have made drawings for all the parts needed and wrote detailed
installation instructions. For more information take a look at my web
site www.caro-engineering.com.

I'd definitely be interested in the tail dragged gear, Sonja. I see the website is not up yet. Is the another way to view it? Will a prancing horse sticker come with the kit? Ha!

I love my Pulsar XP. But, the nose wheel problems are a hassle and I sometimes fly into grass fields to take the A/C to my off field mechanic. How much time is it likely to take a trained mechanic to complete? Cost?

The speed increase is a bonus. How about pulling the throttle back and getting a sub 3 GPH fuel burn with the 80 HP Rotax, due to the lower drag. I'll take the challenge!
