Give it a name and it is exclusive? All engines are basicly the same (in disign) so you do not have to worry you will change a thing.

Understand that, but I think the odd size bearing is exclusive unless I can dremel out the little piece from the engine housing

I have seen that, the Novarossi Virtus has the same bearing. It is an expensive bearing and imo it is just to keep the support (no other bearing manufacturer is making these bearings so far I know). That is also why RB is using a different size crankpin.
Sad that RB is now also using these bearings....

As mentioned in the Novarossi topics, I would take out the edge in the crankcase so a normal bearing will fit when I am in the need of a new bearing.

Hello Roelof ,

To replace this special bearing do I need special tool or I can replace it like old school ? As I will receive it in few days for my virtus .

Thank you

Replacing it can be done in every same way you are used to do.

Good 9 port Novarossi based engine, don't know how you will do for getting any spares for it these days probably at least a 4 year old engine.

If it's in good condition, run in properly and has good compression.

Should be an awesome engine!

Re: glow plug help!

My brother has an old RB Speedling Matrix (Sirio based). It came standard with a RB 01051-6 (CP-02 Series) turbo plug. Wondering if the newer 01052-6 (V3) is compatiable? Are all RB plugs re-badged Novarossi? I am kinda confused cause i knew Sirio had a different taper on it.... or was that Picco! :S

Thanks in advance!
Andrew

This is probably a odd question for you guys but, will the RB speed .12 3 port engine be good in a off road Gas truck? Thanks
