    The other day, the 500 had a terrible encounter with the ground kind. She came crashing down head first at a nice clip. Talking about a headache lol. Check out the top metal bearing holder for the DFC shaft beside the feathering shaft. batch_IMG_0936.JPG

    She's almost done Tony. I had to straighten out the bearing holder for the main shaft til I find the parts I need. The shipping cost is crazy. I need to find a USA distributor who has this part :(.

    Been sitting here thinking, and I don't think I have the main bearing holder for a 500... I have only owned one 500 in my life, and sold it many years ago. Hope you get it soon, however putting it in a vise to straighten it out should work fine, just make sure the bearing fits good in there and is not being pinched. If it is pinched, it will cause premature failure of the bearing pretty quickly.
