    Question HT TUMBLER piston/schock size on flaps? ANYONE?

    Hi,


    I just received my 3D parts and finished them off with paint and glue them on the flaps ready to be installed, but since I can only install the flaps on my tumbler in March, I realized I might have printed the wrong size piston?


    I searched the net but NOBODY shows a descend picture of video of with piston is on wich flap size!?


    So I got some pictures:






    Can anybody confirm that on the LARGE flaps, the small size piston have to be installed?
    And on the SMALL flaps actually hold the large size piston?


    Because now I just installed the large size pistons on both the large and small flaps.
    And I realized on the other flaps I have left, there is a small piston fitted on the large flap and a large piston on the small flap.


    thx y'all!

    Hi

    The small pistons must be on the large flaps and the large pistons on the small flaps.
    The distance between the small flaps and the connection on the tumbler is bigger than distance from the larger flaps.

    I remember there being another thread linked to this very same problem, right?
    The 3D printing process plus the paintjob where shown in pictures.
    Can anybody give me a link to that thread? I'd like to make a few points concerning this.
    Thanks,
    m.

    While my 3 parts are already printed.
    I will share pictures of the modification of this piston when I shorten it...

    I have the .stl files of the 3 parts for sale for 5$
