Hello everyone,
I know Ive seen this discussed before but I could not find it with the RR search engine.

I cant seem to remember to make sure the slide pins have not fallen below the block before powering it up so I was going to add a 2nd collar under the swash to prevent the swash from dropping. Just wondering if the 2nd collar needed to be modified or will it fit without modification. I almost had an oops because of this, the pins were not lined up correctly, I powered it up, the swash jumped up and pushed the pins through the bottom of the slide. I started the motor, getting ready to spool up and noticed what was wrong. Lucky Me.
Thanks, for any assistance.

How is that different from the stock collar that is already on the machine, different in size that is?

I do not have one, and so I cannot tell the difference other than the bling obviously. If you need the stock collar, please pm me and I can give you one for free.. just pay shipping.

For no other reason than they're light and cheap, just stack a few tight fitting o rings on the mainshaft at the desired location.

The gforce collar is wider diameter than the stock one, so it doesn't allow the swash to drop down over the collar.

I like Ben's idea though. It's simple, inexpensive and light.

Thanks for the offer rudyy, I do have one already though. I think I will give Dr.Ben's idea a try, that seems to be the most simple solution.
Thanks for the input everyone.
