I have a complete gear just removed from a 1945 J3. Left side has a patch but is in good shape and serviceable. The right side needs repair. Asking $450 for the lot. Make me an offer.
Both are uncovered.

Let's start this post right. I'm not trying to be sarcastic and I don't work for a parts manufacturer. I do care about those who own and/or rebuild Cubs.

If you have a flying Cub or are working on a restoration, why are you jepordizing everything on a used, previously damaged, uninspectable part - the failure of which could either cost you a great deal of money and/or ruin a significant amount of work put into the rebuild???

The used part being offered is obviously not good enough for the seller to trust it - why would you? The offered price is 50% of new price - but you have NO gurantee of what you are getting. Is that a good deal?

Bite the bullet, buy new and have peace of mind for the rest of the time you own your Cub.

Covering a gear leg is a good introduction to a new, fun skill that can benefit you in Cub ownership.
