On what heli? On my Trex 450, I remember seeing a slot underneath that looks like you would use it to screw the swash together. Could be my mind playing tricks on me though.

They are broke anyway, might as well experiment.

I've seen some helis that used set screws to hole the swash together and you could replace the inner bearing. Granted you don't see that often.

Any swash was more than one part at one time, just a matter of how they put it together.

You've got me curious now haha.

Without one to look at just this moment I'd maybe bank on a heated press fit or some sort of threading.

You can take the B450's stock swash apart. There are 3 screws on the botton that look like they are holding the bearing in place.

The above has instructions on how to dismantle a Trex swashplate. It may still be valid.
