That's great news. Glad it was a simple fix. Thanks for getting back to me.

Ok, what I found was that the square bracket that holds the Rubber Stopper on the Nose Link (that is concave to seat to the strut tube) was loose, so that it rotated and did not seat in the concave to tube manner. Also complicating this was the fact that the strut and rubber had a large amount of grease, oil and dirt from the engine change out so that the nose wheel could easily move and in turn cause the uncoordinated flight, as the nose would slide from left to right almost unimpeded with the slightest gust.
Tightened the Rubber Bumper Bracket, cleaned it and the tube and it was test flown, and all good.
