Anyone here have issues with their jesus bolt? I have a slight vertical play between the bolt and the head.

Do you also have a slight play with yours? The bolt is tight however I can still slightly move the head up and down.

There should be no vertical play in the main rotor housing. Are the holes in your rotor housing elongated vertically, or is there a problem with your main shaft holes?

no play at all yes if you can see your jesus bolt moving up and down theres a big prob. I agree with NQNA check the main shaft and auto gear.

You DEFINITELY don't want any play on the Jesus Bolt. The torque will wear a groove in the bolt and it will eventually fail in flight. No play on mine.

......and not to be argumentative, but I think you do want that bolt tight.
