If i doesn't expand the case Dreaux, it will grind the case every time you pull out and/or put in a new bearing it be slightly looser, and eventually it will not hold tight..That's why I am so curious as to how it works

You have my interest. Please go on
It is a puller. It clamps the bearing from the inside and pulls it out without heat. Just like the tools that engine builders/factories use. It really won't hurt the engine. How many times are you going to remove and install bearings? You can also heat the block up some when you do it if you feel it is nessicary.

It's actually VERY easy to get them out without heat. I can change bearings in an engine from start to finish in about 10 minutes(assembly and disassembly of the engine included). The tool does all of the work. You just turn the wheels and the bearing will pop out.

Yeah the price tag does hurt. It used to be available for cheaper at some of the online places, but noone seems to be carrying it anymore. Better hurry if you want one. GRP is no more(as far as engines go).

If you have everything to put it all back together with i wouldn't think that little chip would hurt anything. It did not go all the way down to the case and the exhuast gasket will seal that off. Just make sure to put a couple of pipe springs on to keep it nice and snug. But if i had all the stuff i would definately try it. If it goes to lean bogging like you don't have the pressure line on then you know it's not going to work. But from looking at the pics i don't see any problem with it not sealing off.

oh yeah and the grp engine tooling kit is the best money i ever spent it rc. I am seriously thinking of trying to pick up another set just because they won't be out there much longer. Worth every penny!
