How to recognize the right way to put the thrust bearings of the main rotor head (in 3 parts : 2 washers and 1 part with spheres) ? The spheres are "naked" in one side and not on the other. Which side goes towards the center of rotorhead ? thanks

returned your pm.

This part does not matter. Only the outer races of the thrust bearings need to go on a certian way.

The 2 outer races are the same in my kit, I have measured them in diameter and they seem symetrical.

the inner holes are diffrent sizes. Place both on the spindle at the same time. Rock each one back and forth. The one that moves the most has the larger inner hole. It will go on the inside.

The one with larger inside diameter goes in first, as Mudbogger2 indicated.

I grease the "cup" side of the center piece with little balls. I put the cup side in to try to hold some grease in the cup when spin up.

The inner diameters only differ by 0,2 mm so you have to measure them to know the difference.



What comes around goes around.
