eclipse thruster line length?

Postby Laughingman » Thu Sep 20, 2012 3:21 am

Hey there

Im in the process of changing the depower line and the chickenloop of a 6m eclipse thruster, I failed to check the line lengths with the old loop and old depower line. Im assuming the lines should be all the same length when fully powered. can anyone confirm this... ?

Pete

Thanks for the reply, did you measure the lines with the depower fully out and the bar pulled all the way in?
