I changed from the old White drive gears to the new Blue Gear assembly and had to change the Tail drive gear to the Blue as the blue gears needed a larger diameter tail drive gear. I changed to the HS1216T-84 Metal Tail Drive Gear Assembly. It had to take apart the old drive gear and re use the housings. After assembly you press a metal gear (which drives the belt) on to the top of the assembly. It went on fairly easy but won't turn and I can't pull it off. I started thinking that maybe I should have use some loctite on the shaft before slipping on the metal gear. Has anyone had any experience with this and should I take the heli back apart and try to remove that metal gear and use loctite.

Thanks

Rich

What do you mean by "it won't turn"? Is it on too tight and it binds or is it stuck?

Take Care,

Metal Gear
What I mean is that after slipping the gear on the shaft it will not slip when I hold the plastic gear and try to turn the metal gear on the shaft. I was worried that since it was a slip on gear it might come lose but I held the plastic gear and turned really hard to try and get the metal gear to slip but it would not. The whole assembly is working as it should and spins just fine as an assembly. I started thinking that loctite would probably make no difference as there is not enough tolerance on the shaft and the locktite would probably be pushed off when the gear was pushed on anyway. Threads have some slop for locktite. So I'm hoping that Align didn't want anything on the shaft before slipping on the gear.

It might slip later, so I would tap the shaft out of the top gear and then red 262 Loctite it before putting back together again.

Take Care,
