Default orion crf help !!

I have an orion crf (on road) in my gt 2 and the front bearing is a leaker ! has any one had problems with this creating an inconsistant tune on the engine ?? with it tuned it will all the sudden loose its tune then come back , almost like it has a lean hesitation when it looses it . I've been through the engine twice now looking for a bad oring or someplace for an air leak and nothing . I have tried everything possible from the fuel tank to the clutch . The front bearing is the only thing that i can see that might be a problem . this is my last ditch effort with this engine before it hits the trash can so thanks for any input !!

Go to the nitro on-road page and click on the nitro engines thread which is at the top of the page and there is a CRF thread.

Go there and all of your answers await you.

Cheers

Heres the link instead.................
