nut on the bottom of the main gear without tears
tip applies mostly to the Interceptor 400 and to a lesser extent the
tip was donated by JAY COLLER, for whom the thanks should go....
have often had a hard time getting the nut on the retaining bolt started
when reinstalling the main drive gear on several helicopters, so I found
that this tricky little task is made much easier if I use a longish bolt
(the same diameter and thread count as the retaining bolt) and just
catch a couple threads on it so that I can easily place the nut on the
end of my retaining bolt and get it started.
it wants to try to turn on the bolt itself, I just double nut it so that
it can't do so.
just a little trick but I have spent a few frustrated hours trying to
get that nut back on when it was the last thing keeping me grounded and
maybe some one else has had that same problem when trying to use pliers,
as I always ended up dropping the nut ...
hope that this great tip from JAY will help others to fit this important but awkward little
nut more easily in future
