I'm planning on replacing the plastic gears in my Fury's tail box with the Machined delrin/metal version. Does anyone have any instructions or tips on this? Or is it a pull it apart and figure it out as you go type thing??? Any critical information to know about?

thanks!

Its pretty straight forward.

You might need to change shims to get correct play with the new, I run them just a tiny tiny bit tight if possible, then they wear in nicely within a few flights.

Like MrMel said, I will also run mine a bit tight but they wear in quite nicely. Just make sure you tighten the mesh again after the first couple gallons. FWIW, I also grease the gears when I first install them. Not sure that it makes a difference but it makes me feel better.

It's also nice to have the Ma0555 service tool I've had a couple roll pins that didnt want to budge and would have been nice to have it.

Yes, the tool makes it a breeze to change, I'd recommend it.

I bought the tool, but have no idea how to use it. Do i have to take the gearbox off completely? presumably... then what? Sigh..

Hi

I have "upgraded" my MA Fan tool (MA #0546-21)
http://www.miniatureaircraftusa.com...prod=0546%2D21.

I use it support the gears, when hitting out the pin in the gear, (with an mandrel/dorn)

Parsifal:

First loosen the set screws of the gear on the tail output shaft (the one that the hub would be on), and also remove the collar and slide out that shaft. Now you should be left with just the input gear that goes into the tail boom. Loosen the 2 setscrews that you would usually use to adjust the gear mesh on the gearbox (that would be inside the tailboom) and push the remaining gear assembly into the gearbox cavity. Set the collar of that gear into the tool's "y", lining the roll pin up with the hole. Then use the proper size metal dowel to tap out the roll pin. You'll use the same method to put the new gear back on that shaft, except you'll use the larger dowel.

Hope that made sense Knud's pictures should be very helpful too.

Got mine changed. I ordered the Tool and it does make it pretty easy. Kinda "cradles" the assembly while the roll pin is removed/installed.
