The Magic-1 uses hub S3365 which is made fully round and supports the Superior and Champion type dual bearing blade holders.
The Magic-2 or L and the Scout-2 use hub S3382 which is made with a flat machined on one side and is indeed referred to by the Schluter parts list as "flat". This hub is longer than S3365 providing a larger tail rotor span and supports the Futura type blade holders.
I have in my inventory, two hubs which are of the same dimension as the S3382, however, it is also fully round (no flat). I don't have a part number for these because they were not in original Schluter packaging. I think I have identified these as being S3376, but I don't have a Schluter plan to support this.
Does any Schluter collector out there know where the S3376 was used?

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Mikerobe: I would PM this question to Terry Moore. He knows more about Schluter's than anyone else I know. Good luck!

Hi Klaus,
Yeah, I've looked at all the exploded views and I couldn't find anything. One of the Magics that I bought has what I believe to be a S3376.
I have a 1993 Schluter Parts List that I'm retyping and adding a "where used" and "substitute" categories. It would be nice to know where this was used first.

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Hello!

Very interresting. As you wrote above the exploded views shows parts with Nr. S3365 and S3382. BUT in the orig. partslist of the Magic manual
S2880, there is only a part S3376 listed ond none with above numbers.

During the time of the Magic and Magic II the part S3383 was a Delrin piece that originally was machined with a radius to match the OD of the S3365. This wasn't terribly well thought out and within a flight or two the tail rotor shaft would teeter a lot essentially wearing out that delrin part. The Magic II changed that delrin part to a flat to match the new shaft design S3382 and it too failed. Total waste of time. I ran the Superior hub and tail blade system for a long time and then switched out to the Futura style and honestly couldn't tell the difference in flight performance.

Ok, found out that S3376(Tail Rotor Hub) was used with S3375(Tail Rotor Damper) on the first generation of the Magic-II.
As TMoore stated, S3376 was then superceded to S3382(Blade Bearing Shaft "Flat". S3375 was superceded to S3383(Rubber Dampener Flat).

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!
