Sounds like the tail wheel vertical shaft is froze up. Usually caused by dried grease and dust inside and grease fitting plugged, not allowing you to get grease in "Zerk". You need to do 2 things. One get the wheel freed up. With the tail wheel off the ground, remove the cap (probably held in with a cotter key) and spray with WD 40 or PB blaster, or ATF, or oil and try to turn it left to right. May have to let it soak 24 hours. May end up having to heat it. Second thing is to try and grease using a grease gun on the grease zirk. If it doesn"t take grease, you may have to screw it out and clean both the zirk and in the fitting to the shaft and also also spray thru the hole. Grease should be able to come thru the zirk, when snapped on the grease gun, before putting back on. Are you also using the depth control lever (8N and above) to hold the front of the chopper up, or using depth chains. failure to have this right can cause undo pressure on the rear tail wheel. The side skids should be off the ground. Charles Krammin SW MI
