Default Nova Breaks

Anyone seen this before?

How long do you think a CA glue job will last?

You can try to solder it with special aluminium solder.

This issue is seen before. On the old RB-products forums several people were complaining about it.

Find someone with a few wore out nova motors around and see if you can get a good case on the cheap. Then just swap your guts into it. Just make sure to get one that has the same crank size. They come in 13, 14 and 14.5mm varieties.

Be sure to have the right boring/stroke. If the crank is different maybe you can take over the crank as well, it will work.
