Default Rear Bearing doesn't lock itself onto Crankcase!

S.O.S!!!!!

I spun my crankshaft by hand and noticed the rear bearing doesn't LOCK itself into place anymore. I just changed it 2 tanks ago!!

Running a P5XS BTW... bearing is 14x25.4x6

Am I done for?

thats the wrong size bearing , its 14x25.8x6mm bearing . sorry to say but you probably need a rod , crank , a case and possibly a p/s set now . hope its ok but i doubt it .

+1. That motor is most likely damaged by now.

Thanks to both of you Gurus Cheers !
