I was told that Raptor part # PV0682 main shaft bolt was compatible with my 50 V2. The problem is that this part is 3.5mm and the original is 3mm. My question is, can I drill the Autorotation gear and main shaft to 3.5mm, without causing a problem?

I've done it. You can use a hand power drill on the auto pulley. But I would use a drill press on the OWB sleeve.
Edit: I got it now! The main shaft needs to be drilled. Never drilled a main shaft. But, it should only be case harden. Use a sharp drill bit on it.

Why ??

I would think a 3mm bolt is a bit cheaper ?

Than replacing a shaft and hub after the drill is broken in the hardened main shaft.

What's missing ???

I would like to replace it with an original 3mm bolt, but they don't sell the replacement bolt. Where do I find a shouldered bolt the right size and hardness?

The shoulders aren't long enough. But, it's the right length.

The main Hub Bolt Set PV0381 looks just like the original bolt. The shoulder is the same length. I wonder if the hardness is the same.

R 50 V2

top and bottom.

Did use it on top with a Mavrikk head bottom.
Now is only on bottom, and using what ever came with the G Force head on top.

Never broke one.

The MA ARE harder, no doubt of that.

Just checking to make sure you're not sniffing too much Magnum Fuel.

Something to be said is that most Raptor V2 heads that do not have a pinching/clamping grip DO COME LOOSE over time and gain play.

When they do that, you will break J bolts like stumping Romain noodles on Big Foot convention.
