Anyone else end up with a head block that is extremely tight on the main shaft when installing?

Hi Phillip,

I bought and installed the new MA 90 FBL head on my Ion-x earlier this year and found the rotor head was a VERY tight fit. I just rolled up a bit of 400 carbite sandpaper and sanded the inside of the head (esp, around the bottom edge and where the jesus bolt/pin goes through). Guess you could also sand a little off the top of the main shaft but those MA very hard main shafts require a LOT of sanding work, lol!

Cheers,
TomC

Heat it up with a heat gun. Tight is good!

I always thought tight on the main shaft was good?
