I restored a Vario Schweizer last year and flew around a gallon of fuel through it.
My question is how often should I check the tail drive wire?
I'm not a big fan of tail drive wires but this has been fine so far.
Do any of you replace the wire after a certain amount of flying time?

I'm in the process of rebuilding my Vario 300C. the only issue I've found so far is that the PTFE bushing guides (800/9) slipped
out of position inside the boom. It didn't seem to have any effect
on the wire though. I would also check the shaft on the tail with the 4mm allen screws part (49/9)just to make sure they're tight, as well as the front claw (49/6)

I would say as long as it stays clean, tight, and runs smooth inside the busing guides, you should be good.
