Just finished a minor adjustment on my Titian and noticed my white belt pully doen't spin when twirling the tail rotor /

Although I can easiley and freely spin the grey main gear, it's very well lubed.

Last flight had a bit of a bounce to it. I can spin my tail drive pully on R30 from the rear. Is this normal or could I have hogged up one of the roller's in the bearing ? Or am I just thinking too hard ?

The tail rotor should only spin one way.

GREYEAGLE-
What might be confusing you is the two helos....
You Raptor 30 didn't come with a Autorotation gear,
Unless you installed one!
Now the Titan did, So the helo's "seem" different!
Everything you described sounds NORMAL.....
As you said, "your thinking too hard" ....

Thanx Guy's ! I really thought too hard about​it.

Just too busy working on too many Heli's and was really focused on a re-worked alternator mount for the Titan.

Spent so much time focused on the mount and mesh of the auxillary pinion and shaft that when I got it all buttoned back up and spun the the tail, and it didn't move --- I got spooked.

Finially got greasy TT36 R30 tuned, and I had to eat some bean's " I told you so " from raptor man 23 on my selection of glow plugs You want to stuggle with engine issues just insert wrong plug in marked hole.

Was pretty nice to have a service man come over and polish all my muff's for me with autosol. Very shiney in deed.

Big day tommorow ! 1- 50, 1- 52, 1-30, 2-MA gasser 230's, and I even think were tossing in a Lazy Bee for getting stupid with.

All are presently on the grid !

Thanx again, - whoop's gota go and mix some camper gas
