Hawk 50 HPM converted to CCPM
Just got and installed the CCPM conversion on my Century hawk 50 (a 30 Hawk converted to 50 few years back.) The Canopy will not fit now. Does anybody know if the newer Century canopies will fit. Also I can put my finger on the counter gear and wiggle it up and down; a little to much play, maybe bearings are shot. I guess I will have to tear it down. Thanks

yeeup, you need to take it apart and replace the Counter Shaft Bearings, and usually when you get that much wobble you may need to replace the Shaft also,
to add, when using the 50 size engine you may want to use half a drop of red Locktite to glue each Bearing to the Shaft (first clean the Shaft and Bearings ID with Rubbing Alcohol), the Locktite stops vibrations, and, when installing the Shaft fit the top Pinion Gear to the Shaft with a very-very slight Preload pressure on the bearings, just enough to hold the Shaft from moving up and down, this too will help stop vibration
