Default Putting ceramic bearings in a case.

Anyone know a source that sells ceramic bearings for nitro engines that can also install them?

Thanks Brothers.

Mike.

I just installed new bearings in my Rossi 21-5k, it was a snap. You will probably want to invest a few dollars in a bearing pulling tool, this is the one I just picked up from OFNA, part number 10798:

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/3528

The front bearing came right out without even having to heat the block. The rear, you need only slap the block in the oven, preheat it to 350 degrees, for 20 minutes remove and give it a gentle wrap on a block of wood and voila the rear bearing pops out of its seating. Peter at TKO shared this little tid bit with me.
