Just take the nut and black thing off that came on the engine, they are not needed. then put a shim against the bearing and then the collet and then the flywheel. What vehicle are you trying to put it in.

Take the "prop" washer off the shaft, you don't use it. Now you should be able to slide the collet (cone thingy) on the shaft. Put the flywheel over the cone thingy and tighten it down with the clutch nut.

i just got on tower hobbies and looked at the motor i thin they sent me the standard edition instead of the draked because on the drake the carb body is silver it has no black thing over the crank and has just a collet on the shaft. the standard has the black thing a black carb body and no collet this is the one i got . so i guess they messed up the order.

Well look at the plug and cylinder.Does it look ran and broken in?(also you shouldnt have to brake in the draked.He runs and tunes them himself.So if it hasnt been ran then its not the draked.

OK this time I'll go slower: Both engines have the same threaded crankshaft.

Remove the nut from the shaft.

Remove the washer.

Remove the Prop Washer.

Do you see the bearing? Yes. Good.

Throw those things away, you will not be using them.

Now you should have a threaded crankshaft sticking out of the engine, right?

Take the collet from your old engine and slide it onto the threaded shaft.

Take the flywheel and put it on so that it goes over the collet. Does it rub on the crankcase, No then continue. Yes then place a small shim between the collet and the bearing.

Take the clutch nut and screw it onto the threaded shaft.

Assemble the clutch according to the manual.

Reinstall the engine.

Drake only blueprints and assembles the engines, he doesn't run them in. That's up to the consumer to do. Aaron Waldron affirmed this.

Don't go by the pictures shown by Tower, they have made many mistakes before. Look in the box it came in. The copy reads the same for both engines the standard and the premium.

Usually engines are shipped with the prop washer because some people used to break in their engines using a propellor.

I'm surprised that your collet doesn't fit. It is from a Losi XXX-NT RTR isn't it?

Well a 5mm shaft is a 5mm shaft regardless of manufacturer. That's why I'm surprised the collet doesn't fit.

Also you are looking at pictures taken by a photographer hired by the marketing people and all they do is to take pictures of whatever they're given to photograph.

OK I attached a couple pictures of an engine with the prop washer on and off. The three black things are the prop washer, washer and nut which are what you don't need.

Now look at the crankshaft. Does yours look the same? This is a standard 5mm threaded cranshaft just the same as either Drake version from Trinity. A 5mm collet fits over those flat parts on the shaft.

Some engines come with a collet but most do not. The one in the picture I sent didn't come with one. (That model was my old Fantom, ran great for 8 gallons before giving up its compression). I don't get it, if you removed the 5mm collet from your old engine then it should just slide onto the 5mm shaft of the new engine.

If you look at the pictures from the Trinity site you will see that it is exactly the same one as on the Tower site. Why, because Tower uses the vendor's pictures and copy. Read the copy for both engines on Tower's site and you'll see that they are identical with the exception of one line of text describing Drake blueprinting the premium engine.

Besides that is a 5mm collet shown on the Trinity site. Also there is no mention of what comes included in the box on the Trinity site.
