noisy rotor filter


Recommended Posts

Just carried out a major service on my TD5 Disco and changed the rotor filter. No obvious problems but the rotor filter makes a quite loud rumbling noise on run down after the engine is turned off. The old filter was audible but the new one is a real howler. Any one else had this ? Should I worry about it? Its absolutely silent when the engine is running.

It isn't uncommon on Td5s when the engine is really hot so I shouldn't worry about it. Some say it varies from one rotor to another so perhaps some of them are slightly out of balance or something. Sort of sounds like a rather noisy light aircraft gyro winding down.
