Is this still for sale? If so, I'm looking for a swivelling tailwheel to replace my stock J3 assembly. Would this be a simple swap or would it require additional parts?

Chasbo, it's a simple swap. If it is for a 1.5" spring, you'll need a 1.25" adapter.

What do you presently have on your J3? I might be interested in yours.

It's a 1 1/4" spring, so the Maule part should fit. The condition of my tailwheel is OK. The wheel pivot bushing is worn, but works fine. I'm looking for better ground handling, and the Maule assembly was recommended to me. However I plan to keep the original tailwheel (the plane was restored to stock condition, and I want to be able to put it back to original).

I'm also planning to install Grove brakes someday, as I have to taxi down a steep grade with dropoffs to get to my hangar, and I don't trust the stock brakes.

I ran the solid Maule tail wheel on my cub for a few hundred hours. I replaced my solid with the pneumatic 6.50 Tundra tailwheel also by Maule. I really like the new tire. Its a softer landing roll out. The solid tire transmits the rough terrain. jimmy
