Re: Leader Fuel Tap

Hi Geof, Draganfly supply a tap which they have modified to fit the Leader. I've repaired over 45 taps for the Leader/Arrow . Looking through some bits I bought last year to help do the repairs I found a valve fork/cork/selector barrel in good condition which should help get yours working. I do make...

Re: Leader resto complete but alas a problem

Re: Crankshaft connection bolt

Hello, Pleased to hear the bolt is sorted. Re lininig up the shafts. Some flywheel assemblies go together with no problems and line up straight away and others seem to need quite a lot of work to get them to the correct run out. If the shafts are out, tighten them up in stages and pull them into lin...

Re: Crankshaft connection bolt

Hi, The bolt is torqued to 60 ft/lb and may have been done higher so will need some force to undo it.

Re: Flywheel bolt

Hello,

I find a car oil filter remover ( nylon strap type) will just go over the flywheel and hold it enough to free the centre nut.
