Harness and swing arms.


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I have an old castaloucio ( probably spy wrong) solo 210 that is spare. I've been doing a bit of refurb on it and the swing arms come out from the frame dip down then rise up and turn in towards the pilot. Makes it uncomfortable as when under load the swing arms come and can press against you. This doesn't seem to make sense to me.

On my simmo the arms don't swing at all and just come out and turn up, similar on the bulldog my dad has.

Why is this, what is the purpose and is it possible to change this?

Any thoughts would be welcome.

Cheers Lee

Pictures would help.

The simplest way to share pics is to use the iPhone app (PMC Forum)

Other than that, save the pic to your computer, start a thread as normal, below the preview button you should see a (choose file) button, click that, browse to your picture and click add file.

Job done.

I've not long sold a fly castile,thing!

And I don't recall the ends of the arms being bent in towards the body. They should be parallel with the frame when the strap is done up. Giving a little extra room.

Seen one like this before (along time ago) are there any stops between the swing blocks and the frame?

the arms should be at 90 degrees to the frame and not come in any more, could you put some packing/adjusters in to stop them coming in more than this?

The white blocks stop when they are 90 deg to the frame but cause of the curve in the arms they come in more. What I'm thinking to replace the arms and make them solid not swinging. I would prefer to change the attachment to the harness so arms turn up and not in.

Would this cause problems?

Cheers Lee.
