PROPELLER, SEAL AND CLUTCH REASSEMBLY

CAUTION: Verify that the battery is not installed or the battery and motor leads are disconnected prior to commencing reassembly of the propeller, seal and clutch.

1 . Place the vehicle, or aft housing assembly, horizontally on a soft, clean surface with the tail cone(37) and motor shaft facing you.

2. Position the inner seal washer(85) with the flat side out and .carefully slide it over the motor shaft into the recessed cavity of the tail cone(37). (Fig. 29)

3. Insert the inner shaft seal(82) into the recessed cavity and the cup retaining ring(83) into the inner groove within the inner seal cup(84).

4. Place both thumbs inside the inner seal cup(B4) with inner shaft seal (82) and cup retaining ring (83) and push it straight onto the motor shaft and into the seal cavity of the tail cone (37). (fig 28)

5. Holding the rotary seal (82) by the smaller hex shaped end push it firmly onto the motor shaft until it seats against the inner seal (82).

(Fig. 29)

 

6. Carefully install the rotary seal sprng(82) over the motor shaft and onto the hex shaped end of the rotary shaft seal(82).

7. Place the spring cap(82) over the motor shaft and onto the end of the spring(82) with the concave side toward the spring. While pressing on the cap(82) to compress the spring, use external circlip pliers to install the rotary seal clip(81). (Fig. 30) Ensure it is seated into the groove in the motor shaft before releasing the spring.

8. Insert the drive pin(80) into the hole through the motor shaft so that it protrudes equally from both sides of the shaft.

9. Slide the clutch plate(79) onto the motor shaft with the pin recess facing inward and turn it slowly until it engages onto the drive pin(80).

10. Slide the inner hub(77) onto the motor shaft with the support posts facing out and turn It slowly until It engages into the clutch plate(79). (Fig. 31)

wpe5.jpg (76952 bytes)

(Fig. 31)

11. Install the metal clutch ring(76) over the motor shaft and onto the edge of the inner hub(77).

12. Install the first of nine clutch spring washers(75) onto the motor shaft oriented so it bows outward. Install the remaining eight spnng washers(75) in alternate directions to each other and secure by inserting the clutch screw(73) through the concave side of the clutch washer(74) and into the end of the motor shaft. (Fig. 32)

(Fig. 32)

13. Holding the inner hub(77) to prevent turning, use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the clutch screw(73) by turning clockwise until secure. DO NOT overtighten.

14. Holding the yoke shaft(71) by the squared end, thread the shaft clockwise into the small opening end of the blade yoke(72) until the threads are engaged. DO NOT tighten.

15. Place the outer hub(70) on a clean flat surface with the blade guide notches facing up and lower the squared end of the yoke shaft down into the center hole until it is just contacting the flat surface below. (Fig. 33)

(Fig. 35)

18. Holding the complete propeller/hub assembly together with both hands and oriented with the square end of the yoke shaft facing out, slide the assembly onto the inner hub(77) rotating as necessary to achieve proper alignment and full engagement. (Fig. 36) There should not be any space between the inner(77) and outer(70) hubs.

1 9. Holding the outer hub(70) to prevent turning, install the three outer hub screws(67) and use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten in a clockwise direction until snug. DO NOT overtighten.

20. Turn the shaft clockwise with your fingers while twisting the propeller blades so the base of each is flush with the outer hub(70) and the yoke shaft(71) has 1/4 turn of play. Turn the shaft(71) so a flat side faces the pitch mark "9"

wpeA.jpg (98807 bytes)

(Fig. 36)

NOTE: If two flat sides of the shaft align. in this position, choose the one that makes the circular portion of the shaft flush with the top of the hub.

CAUTION: Use only your fingers to turn the shaft, DO NOT use any tools.

21. Place the variable knob(66) onto the yoke shaft(71) with the notch aligned to pitch mark "9", rotate counter clockwise to pitch mark "1", and remove the knob(66).

22. lnsert the knob spring(69) into the small spring hole located at the edge of the outer hub(70) between the pitch marks '1' and '9', and place the knob ball (68) on top of the knob spring(69).

23. With the notch of the variable knob(66) aligned with pitch mark '9', guide the knob(66) onto the shaft(71), taking care not to dislodge the knob ball (68) and knob spring(69).

NOTE: The ball and spring can be hold in place with a thin piece of metal or plastic.

24. Holding the variable knob(66) to prevent turning, install the knob screw(65) and use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten in a clockwise direction until snug. DO NOT overtighten.

25. Turn the variable knob (66) in both directions to verfify smooth operation and propeller blade pitch change.
