Hello all,
I was removing my stock tail rotor hub last night (to replace it with aan Ergo 1 - piece) and when I removed the grub screws, it did not come off, I figure I must have used too much loctite or it is stuck from one of the times I "cut the grass" with my tail blades. Anyways I tried pliers, etc. and could not get th hub off the shaft. Any ideas on what I could do?

Also has anyone else noticed how the tail control lever can just pop very easily off of the tail control link ( off of the ball ) is this just a part that wears out quickly, or is there an aftermarket lever which will serve me better?

Thanks, Jim

Tail hub
Im sure you have two much lock tight on the hub and shaft. Remove the tail shaft from the gear box. Heat the hub up with a hair dryer. Wrap a rag around the pulley and hold it with a small pliers. Use a second set of pliers on the hub to rotate it. DO NOT PUT PLIERS ON THE SHAFT. YOU WILL SCORE IT AND PITCH SLIDER WILL NOT SLIDE PROPERLY. And yes the ball and pitch lever do wear out regular. Replace this as required.

heat the hub with a lighter, then hold the main gear still, then wrap the hot hub with a towel and it will twist right off.

Thanks, and another question.
Thanks I will try those methods tonight,
I had another question as well, when you push the barrel pin into the tail rotor shaft to hold the pulley on is it a good idea to maybe put a drop of CA don each end after it is through just to hold the pin to the plastic. Also when I pressed the pin through the shaft one end stickout like 1/32 of an inch while the other is flush with the pulley, should I worry about that (I worry alot about this machine ) Thanks for your help.

PIN
The new style shafts are drilled on the end to except a set screw to hold the pin. I guess if you still have the old style CA would not hurt. The slight 1/32 off will not bother anything.
