Swash Plate Separation Fix

If anyone wants to fix the swash plate separation problem, what you need to do is something like shown in cpuken's post linked below.

Another way to fix:
Instead of building up the OD of the 4-ball swash hat, my fix is to put a VERY THIN layer of glue on the ID of the swash plate bearing race, and then push the 4-ball swash hat into the bearing to seat it down, and wipe any excess glue off the bottom side after it's fully seated. If you don't use too much glue, there shouldn't much excess pushed out the bottom side.

By putting the VERY THIN layer of glue on the ID of the bearing race, you push out any excess on the bottom side that can be quickly cleaned up and not get into the bearing itself.

You will have to remove the rotor head and remove the swash plate assembly to do this fix right. Make sure you clean the surfaces with rubbing alcohol or similar before gluing. Might also want to rough up the two surfaces slightly with fine sandpaper to get a strong glue bond.
