Swashplate Prob?
I need help with my swashplate, I took the head apart to replace a part and now the swash wont go pack on. I didnt do anything to the swash. I tried greese but dont know what else to do. Any tips would be great.

Thanks.

Are you sure that the swash ball is up straight? There is no reason why it shouldn't go back on. My guess is you have the ball in the center of the swash at an angle which is stopping the main shaft from getting through.

I've had that happen before.. Was trying to change out some main gears, and the shaft wouldn't go through the one way bearing.. Different shaft went right through.AMA #99382

If you find that your shaft that wouldn't allow the swash to be put back on is straight (not bent, use the table roll method to check), you can chuck up that shaft on a drill and use 600 grit snadpaper to true it up a little. My guess (assuming the shaft isn't bent) is you have a minor burr on the end. You shuold be able to fix that in about 10 minutes.
