We have a 08 cruiser and the front landing gear will only extend a few inches before it it binds up. The motor slows down then pops but it won't extend further, it will extend manually but it's extremely hard. How do I fix this?
Check to see the shear pins are intact on the drive link bar ( from motor side to idler side legs. Check to see they are both in sync / hit the ground at the same time. Check to see you haven't sheared the mounting rivets off the motor / gearbox chassis to landing gear leg. Check condition of the gearbox drive gears.
