I am searching for Boeing 767 (any version) nose and main landing gear bay photos, I need to know if the left/right/front/rear "walls" are vertical or angled, ceiling is horizontal, angled or with a step. Can anybody help? Photos are a must as I am also interested in seeing the wiring/plumbing path or routing. My email is seven4seven4ever at yahoo.com.

Structurally the bays would be near if not 100% symmetrical. The upper picture shows the center web and aft face of the R/H well where as the lower picture shows the center web and the forward face of the L/H well.

Yes, structurally they appear almost symmetrical, what struck me were the wiring or accessories such as the big plumbing present only in the L/H well and the green accumulator (if that is) only in the R/H well. Anyway it helps me a lot, I am about to nail down both wheel well's structure.
Another 2 questions though :
- R/H wheel well (upper photo): it looks like the aft face or "wall" (at the left of the photo) is not vertical but slightly angled, is this correct? It looks to be too much angled to be considered an optical illusion.
- L/H wheel well (lower photo): is the forward face or "wall" (again at the left of the photo) actually the structure of the wing's rear spar?
Now I need to find nose wheel well photos.
Thanks a lot for your replies and help , it is really cool, it is for a modelling project actually.

Not sure if it is helpful, but http://airlinercafe.com/page.php?id=100 has a walkaround for the -400. IIRC the main gear on the -400 were a bit different than the 2/300 models. Unfortunately the photographer doesn't get too intimate with the nose gear.

doug_Or, I have that walkaround as well, it is the web site where I posted photos of my 767 model kit. The good thing about this walkaround is that it shows the differences with "regular" 767 main landing gear (they are obvious when both photos are placed side by side). But no nose bay photos .
