Hmmm. have I got it wrong.Thanks, Chook, I'll see if that space is open near my fuel pump. Did not think of that...
No, the Aviomania does not use a belt on the prerotator; it uses a rubber wheel that is pressed (friction) against an aluminum drive wheel.
The rubber wheel is directly connected to the flex-shaft.
Looking at your gyro from the rear your prop spins anticlockwise which will reverse the direction of the flex driveshaft spinning it clockwise.
When the bendix engages the rotor drive it will then reverse the direction of the rotor drive drive causing it to spin anticlockwise (looking at it from the bottom). Your rotor needs to spin clockwise when viewed from the bottom.
