  • Okay - the FAG bearing has the suffix "C4", which means it'is made with a lot of play. So it's ok as I thought. But now I can see, the engine is the old type with the small pieces of rubber
    to stop the bearings from turning in their seats. And one rubber piece is missing - arrrghh! I...

  • Help! Rotax 503 - PTO bearings - how much axial play?

    My First Gyro Adventure

    Hi guys and gals.

    I just had a great gyro week-end.

    Some travel to Thailand or Bali.........I did this instead - to finally ascertain, if I wanted to go forward with getting a license and with my build.

    Hi Curtis.

    StarBee Gyros has a hardware pack for the Gyrobee. And I'm sure they could sell you what you need.
