Long story short, we aint moving. Don't ask. So, I decided to go ahead with the Cal Fire and tore it down (mechanics) to get to the root of the ticking coming from the tail drive. I also wanted to do something about the tail boom not being clamped firm enough to hold a belt adjustment. I discovered that I had a spare TB mount, complete with the driven gear and pully. This shaft is held firm with two bearings allowing the shaft to torque and misalign the gears should the belt be over tightened. Removed the TB and mount, the spare fit the boom perfect, would hold belt adjustment and it also seems to be a stiffer material holding the bearings better. Swapped parts and did a bench test, no more tick, boom firmly clamped. Next I did a spool up in the kitchen, w/o any blades, and everything is a go. It's winter and it's been either/or/and wind/rain so no maiden yet. Installed the graphics to the fuse, really pleased with them.
