Mercuriell, WOW... I have not got a gear like that that was warped in that way. I have changed 4 myself. Yours looked warped possibly by heat or something?

Anyway nice idea for the fix BUT..... I would worry that the gear would float now and possibly move against the bevel drive gear thus leaving no backlash.

As a tip I would then use green locktite or thin CA to secure the inner race of the bearing to the plastic so the gear wont move forward. Just an idea to save premature wearing of the gears should the one gear move forward.

Added in clutch relining - removal of engine block, gear pinion block, cleaning clutch housing and gluing in new lining - few tips, not a difficult job overall and a view of governor sensor damage from the fan.

Clutch relining - 23MB

Part 1: Basics

To come:
Part 2 Gyro and linkage

Thanks John for a very comprehensive vidoes on the 401/611 gyro, can't wait for the other two parts. No doubt gyro's are the most ask question on the forum and now we have another place to point people to.

The tail set-up was very helpful thank you.

Any chance you could shoot a vid of you hovering so I can see how the tail holds.
