Default blade grips-too tight, Help!!

I bought some new blade grips for my blade 400. See attached for the one I bought.
The problem is when I tighten up the screw that goes into the feathering shaft, I have no play in the blade grips. I don't see how my servos will change the pitch of the blades when I can barely move the blade grips up and down myself. I loosened the screw that goes in the feathering, and I get some play, but I don't think I can chance flying that way. Any idea on how to fix this issue.
HELP!!!

Not sure but I think you have to use MH feathering shaft with the MH blade grips. Give their support a call and see.

Good Luck, Don

Just the feathering shaft right...? I hate to just order that and find out that I need something else.

That seems to be my story with my blade 400.
I get something and find out I need something else.

I may find it, but just in case I don't, can you tell me the part number of that feathering shaft?

Hopefully it's from Horizon hobby or tower hobbies since I won't have to pay for shipping with those 2, but if you find something from somewhere, I will still appreciate that.

Thanks

have you checked to see if your step washers are facing the right way ?, the step needs to go towards the blade grip bearing.

I have the same grips, and during my first "install", the larger inside diameter piece of the thrust bearing seated itself crooked in one of the grips. Trying to force it together with the feathering shaft made the grips so tight, I couldn't move them at all. I removed the thrust bearing, and was able to re-seat it properly. The grips function properly now. I am using a stock Eflite/Blade feathering shaft.
