Does the step side make contact with the face of the bearing or does the flat side of the step washer make contact with the face of the bearing? I had to change my spindle and main rotor. Also where do the shims excactly go that I purchased for my cp pro. Do the shims go between the end spindle washer and step washer????

Thanks!

Direction

Step facing the bearing. Shims go between the oring and the step washer. Go to the e-flightrc site you can view the manual. I know that they have one for the PRO.

Like Splatcat says, the step washer is made to engage with the bearing hub and allow the outer race to spin freely without contacting the washer, so the stepped part should be facing the bearing, and the flat side out.

You can pretty much put the shims anywhere you like, as long as they are against the flat side of one of the step washers. It's better if you have an equal number on each side of the hub, but it's not terribly important. Next to the o-ring is a great place for them.

Here's a couple of pictures I just saved to my computer because I plan on doing the rebuild soon myself.


Light blue is large washer, purple is stepped washer, and dark blue are bearings.

Also, Horizon's site states the same as above - the shims go between the o-rings and flat side of a stepped washer.
