I am working on putting together a second hand Ion. When examining the head, I found a bunch of friction with the washout and the guide pins. Looks like maybe an accident had bent the pins slightly.

First, How do you remove them?
Do these need to be replaced?
Is there a way to straighten them?
I don't want to scuff them with a tool and make them rougher.

I have the FAI head.
Thanks.

hey , I think they are pressed in , I took mine out a few weeks ago , but I didnt care about scuffing them up , didnt need them anymore , flybarless setup , but anyway , if you use a pair of vise grips and something soft so they dont get scuffed , twist and pull was all I did , then straighen them and put them back in , maybe alittle blue locktite shouldnt hurt

Buy new pins if you do remove them, I am sure MA would do the install if you feel the need. Heat the head up they will remove and replace easier. I used a vise to press them in, a block of wood on each end. You could easily bend them or hurt the head, so go slow and keep checking. Check the distance first if you don't seat them all the way they can hit the swash. Chris

Thanks for the replies guys.
I tried to tweak them a little to see if I could get the washout to move freely. It created more resistance. I guess I will have to buy new pins.

Can someone post some pics of your placement of electronics (mostly Rx and Rx battery). I am having a little trouble finding place. Maybe I need to relocate my switch. I will post some pics later today. Any help would be appreciated.

I spoke to Chris yesterday and ordered new pins.
As you can see, I funked mine up pretty ugly.

Hopefully I didn't scratch the inside of the washout guides too badly trying to slide it up and down those scratched pins.
