Picked up a used 1005 and the pitch movement is horribly sticky. Just pulled the head off and the washout block that slides on the shaft is incredibly tight. Why? How do I fix? Emmery cloth the inside? I have a new mast and I can barely slide it over the end of that.

Anyone have a new one for sale if I need it?

H'mmmm
May have Old Ten Oh Five disease:

Used green scotch bright - little bit of solvent - clean the shaft right up^

Dis connect your lift linkages so you can exercise it

Make sure theirs no conflict's in the alignment pin's and the slot's or pockets they travel in and out of.

Need Pic's go into my Gallery

Checked all that stuff... it was all good. There is binding on the shaft... even on the new one. I mic'd them and the shaft is .002 larger in some spots.

We had to polish the mainshafts most of the time, take it out and spin it in a drill or drill press and use 400 until the swash rides easy not sloppy.
