The zerks on mine are positioned to hit the gears. Don't know why they put 2 fittings within 1-1/2" of the top of both of mine, but they sure did.

I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never heard of grease zerks on the landing gear. I don’t think either of my Wildcats had them, but I can’t say for sure. Regardless, I doubt that grease would speed things up much, make them quieter for sure. Electric landing gear don’t come down very fast as it is. I’ll have to look this week to see if my Silverback has grease zerks on the landing gear.

LOL, that sounds like a Tim the Tool Man modification. Too funny.

Now boys, you all know it's not speed required but torque.

You need a diesel not a gasser!
