Quick question does any one else suffer with this, every time i finish a flying session my dam one way clucth locks up, and i have to remove the main gear and free the dam thing. I have tried all sorts of lubes with the latest being ATF, however it still locks up.

This may sound stupid but could this problem be due to the lack of a shim to stop the
up down play in the main gear.?

Any hints and ideas appreciated.

Regards

I had a similar problem with my R50 -
In the end I changed the one way clutch, lubed it with AFT and its been fine ever since.
After closely examining the old one-way I found that there was a very slight 'notchy' feeling in one spot, I guess that this was causing the problem.
I spoke to my LHS and they told me that this is not uncommon after a crash. I have dorked this a couple of times learning autos so I guess that could have been the cause. Silly thing was (just like you) after I got it apart and lubed up it felt as smooth as silk. I would have sworn that it was fine.
