All this recent Skyraider talk has aroused my curiosity. In looking at photos, it appears that some A-1H/J Skyraiders have the spoked wheel and some have the solid cast wheel. Same story for USN or USAF/SVNAF AD's. Is there any way to know which would be correct? Was the wheel type changed to the stronger solid type during overhaul? I have read reference to 'Air Force' and 'Navy' Skyraider wheels, but there seems to be no rhyme or reason. Can you help, @Tailspin Turtle? I am sooo confused. Mainly interested in A-1E and A-1H/J types flown by the USAF in SEA. If this has been covered before, I apologize in advance for the duplication. Mike
