Talking TKO

I will say this, I like them for engine bearings. They don't leak and the seals seem to stay intact.

Hi.

I use normal non-sealed clutch bearings, and they last several gallons of fuel. You just have to lubricate them approx. after every 6 tank of fuel. When you use the non-sealed bearings, you can put oil (I use normal gearbox oil from 1:1 cars) true the outer bearing (when the car stands vertical), and the oil will run down to the inner bearing.
I know you have to check the clutch from time to time by removing the engine from the car, but you can have several practice days this way, without waste time on changing bearings.

If you use a sealed inner bearing with the sealed side towards the clutchshoes, you don't get oil on the shoes under the lubrication.

I don't clean my clutch bearings - no need to

Alot of the bearings come packed with grease, and can make your clutch slip prett bad, I like to blow out the greese with the air compressor and put a drop of oil on the bearing.

do you mean remove the seals and blast the grease out and use light oil doesnt that make them not last ? i mean il get the grease off the outside and than put a dab of oil on the outside of the seal.

How do you like it??

Thanks
yes you are correct, the 621t. and i have to say what an engine! so much power it has outrageous speed, faster then RB's or OS's. but has so much bottom end grunt it is unbelievable! i am struggling to get use to the power and i have had it for a couple of months now.

i would recommend this engine to anyone, why do you ask?

many thanks for the comments, i have some decent clutch bearings but i live in the UK and parts i think are generally more expensive hear. a set of clutch bell bearings from losi costs nearly 10 from my local model shop!

thanks for the advise

lewis
