Default Motor O-Ring?

Ok, I will take it to a thread so more people can check it and hopefully help me out instend of those just in the T2 thread.

I finished in first, but as soon as I passed the finish line I got hit by someone coming and my car stoped going. I took a look at the Motor O-Ring that holds the endbell stuff (bearing, and all that) and it was half-way out, thus causing my motor to stop. I took a small screw driver and poped it back into place. I took the A main in first with it, then I looked at it after the race and it started to come out just a little bit agian.

Anyone else have this problem with this motor? (Element 19T V2). I asked up front if they sell just the O-Ring, because I take it it's too weak and streched out now, but they don't sell them without buying the entire Endbell kit, which is more than the motor itself...

Does anyone know where I could find one?

Thanks,

Mike

No, it's the rubber O-ring that seals in front of the endbell and metal.

Hmm, I guess I could try and get ahold of Orion tomorrow. Im emailing them now.

When i used to run an xray i'm sure i replaced on of those o rings with an xray o ring, must have been from the shocks on the evo2, fko4 or fk05. i'll have a look at my old spares and see if i can work it out.

You can just use motor shims instead, the rubber o-ring is supposed to reduce vibrations.

How would I go about fitting a shim in the slot though (from the outside)?

You mean the large O-ring that secure the ball bearing, Peak(same as Orion) sells them, PEK2454, 9mm o-ring(10 pieces).

You could also go to the local hardware store and get a metal snap ring that size.

It would be much more durable.
