Aluminum swash plate fell apart
I was poring over a damaged swash plate I scrapped after a crash a few months ago, and I discovered that the bearing had come loose from the outer housing, and that there was about 1/16" of axial play between the two parts as a result. I then examined a new swash plate, and I can't figure out what holds the thing together. I'm beginning to wonder if it was securely attached when I installed it.

Does anyone have any idea what's keeping the bearing in the outer housing? Do they often come apart this way?

So I'm guessing it's just held in there with magic?-fox

hi sticky

i was going to post before but i thought maybe someone who knew what they were talking about would beat me to it , i am going to crawl out on a limb and guess that a touch of locktite would be the correct product to use , hope this is some help , dana

I was looking at a new one and thinking it looked like there was some sort of adhesive in there, but I couldn't see any residue on the broken one.-fox

hi
i've had plastic ones come apart and used a touch of CA , and i've had alloy ones that are together with locktite , but i am not familiar with the BCP alloy one you have , my bet is it is the same as the rest , the thing to be carefull about is not having a drop fall in the bearing , i put a drop on the table and then transfer a touch to the swash with a toothpick , maybe in three or four places around it , between the bearing and the swash , dana

The best thing to use to glue cilindical metal to metal is LOCTITE 609. This is a very thin green liquid that will glue that thing and it will never get separated.

As copperclad say:" Be carefull about is not having a drop fall in the bearing" or it will be FUBAR


Good luck,

Isaac
