I had fit the nose gear to test the fit and feel with the nose gear steering rod connected to the rudder pedals.  It fit very well but when moving the rudder pedals very slowly I would get a minor binding.  I took the nose gear off and was able to find the cause of the binding. Now it moves very smoothly on the bushing.

With the nose gear off I could also fit the nose wheel fairing.
