    DFC Rotor Heads.

    the tip path plane doesn't tilt as it moves with the shaft, the mass doesn't change as the tips and shafts share movement as a unit. only coning might add a little but those hub plates are beefy.

    DON'T USE 'TRIPLE NICKLE' IN AN ENGINE WITH A HISTORY OF USING 23699 ! YOU WILL WRECK THE SEALS -PACKINGS AND GASKETS! If you do wish to change to 555 use the slow top off method over a longer time (top off as the oil is consumed) , Don't use the flush and run method - Aero Shell 555 is not the...

    The unit he has went from turning a 300+ lbs of rotors in a OH-58 to a dinky Rotorway. I hope he reassembles it properly. All the units that had Unapproved Parts I found didn't have seal problems even with the wrong seals installed, The engines had been removed for other time related maintenance.

    Come on you're not trying hard enough, seen and replaced plenty of Sprague units with the wrong seal installed - that unit should have no pressure in it just flow. ................................__________/)( .).(. )(\__________,,,<".<",,,____
