Hi Guys,

Need to change the O rings on the main and nose cylinders. One end of the main cylinder opened up easily but the other end wonít.
Any idea if some heat would help loosen it? Would a heat gun be enough? Would be a little afraid to use a blow torch.
Both ends of the nose came apart easily. The seal on one end of the mains looks different from the nose cylinder, otherwise identical.

Thanks Chatty.

Yes, use a heat gun all around, just before trying to undo the insert give it a squirt of CA kickers square on the end, it will cool the blanking plug and help is shrink slightly. If you are changing the Orings anyway, it’s not such a fear to use good heat. The Rod seals are the main area, AT used quite a coarse grain steel and it eat the inside hole each cycle. Polish the rods slightly with metal polish while they are In pieces.

Thanks a ton Dave, your help is always appreciated. Yes your correct, itís the rod seals that are leaking. Since you mentioned I may just change the rod ends.

Regards
Chatty.

Sorry, no luck on the ADI/ AH designation.

The one you show is very close, on the Hawk instrument the horizon bar is yellow and does not have the slip indicator at the bottom.

Really like those stab. servo arrangements, pity as I have just reassembled my big Hawk after winter inspection, replacing the servos with two Futaba HPS A700 s.

Slight difference to DW s suggestion of twin 20 kg servos replacing ONE 40, even better is two 40 kg servos !

As Dave says, you can NEVER have too much control surface servo power.

Are these the ones?

Is this how the model looks? With the sensor mount? Or is the mount not included in the kit?

Thank you for the compliment, all measurements and references were taken at the air force museum, so it should be a perfect match.

David did you get a chance to take some pictures of the nose? What kind of mount are you looking at?

Is this the photo you require.

This a Red Hawk taken a few years ago but still current.

Hey david,

Cheers
