Default MBX5T Servo-Saver assembly

I'm rebuilding my MBX5T and am finding an issue with the servo saver.

Part#C0356 (Servo Saver Shaft) which screws to E1037(Front Upper Arm Plate) binds when I tighten the screws.

Should there be any up & down play with the shafts to the upper arm plate? I'm concerned if I keep them loose enough for free side to side play with steering that the screws will back out.

** I have the carbon fiber upper arm plate

Anyone?

I've attached the page of the manual for reference

Please see step#14. I'm questioning the tightness of SiG3x12

thanks!

Those screws should be tight with no play. Sounds like the threads might be gummed up with loctite...

Hmmm, brand new screws & bearings. Thanks for the info. I'll have to look more closely.
