Hmmm... What is a lot? What head are we talking about? I have two flybared 90s in the other room and the washout links have bearings where they attach to the links that drive the inner swash ring. There is NO slop where the link attaches to the washout arm.

The entire washout unit will move some. It is held in position (in phase) by the two drive pins that come down from the head block. There is always some wiggle in how these pins engage the washout unit. This allows the washout unit to rotate a few degrees relative to the head.

I'm about to confuse myself. I just reread the subject of your post. You have a washout unit on a flybarless head?

At this moment I can't quite picture what it is you're asking.

what would those links be called on a fbl head?

maybe I meant washout linkss on swash follower arms. the pin holes on the follower arms are either too big or they are elongated. im waiting for new arms to come from Germany.

There used to be a separate swashplate follower thing with a set screw. You could then pull the pins and forget about them. You could tap holes in the pitch base and lock it to the mast. AND whack off the long part of the gold arms.

Or you could just use the mikado unit. Works great
