INSTALL NO. 2 THRU NO. 6 FORWARD DRIVE SHAFT
Install shaft No. 2 thru No. 6 in same
way. Typical shaft shown here.
Do not allow bolt to turn. If bolt turns,
bolt and plates can be damaged.
If a replacement shaft (1) is being installed,
remove one nut (2), washer (3), and bolt (4) from
adapter assembly (5). During removal, hold head
of bolt with wrench. Install bushing (6) on mount
(7) at each side of support housing (8).
Turn bearing support housing (8) so that grease
fitting (9) faces up.
Do not disturb alignment of installed
shafts. This keeps forward and aft
rotor blades in phase.
With aid of helper, position shaft (1) between
installed shafts (10 and 11). with two mount
bushings (6) in brackets (12).
Coat thread of six bolts (13) with oil (E254).
Install three bolts, head forward, and special
washers (14) at each end of shaft (1).
