When I tighten the washout base guidance ring the pitch arm gets stiff and hard to move up and down. I have the timing correct and I have rotated the ring to see if that helps but it does not. When I only snug the bolt it works fine but when I tighten it it that is when I have the problem. Does anyone know how to fix this or is it ok just to snug it and not really tighten it down. Thanks for the help.

Try rotating it 180 degrees relative to the washout slots.

I had the exact same problem with my Mavrikk head on my Titan. I ended up leaving the head jesus bolt loose while tightening the phasing ring. Be sure that the ring is seated tightly to the bottom shoulder of the head while you tighten it. I pretty much just kept loosening/wiggling/tightening until I found the sweet spot that let the collective move smoothly. Once you get it right, re-tighten the main head bolt. After a couple of gallons of gas, the metal washout seated in with the pins and it became less touchy. It definitely was a PIA when the washout was brand new. A light touch of oil also aids in smooth swash travel.

BTW, I tried the "just snug method" and the phasing went out by about an 1/8 turn after just 2 curcuits around the field. You definitely want this bolt TIGHT.
