Default Swap Motor Bushings for Bearings

Was wondering what all would be needed to do this, I want to do it in my co27, and also whatever new motor i end up getting (don't want an xx-stock)

Keep in mind doing this makes the motor ILLEGAL for sanctioned events.

We sell a tool on www.teambrood.com that does it without damaging your bearing or bushing.....or the can/endbell.

tried to get on your site, but I get an error in the SQL on the site, so it does not appear.

-----------------------------------------

I have been interested in putting bearings in a stock motor for awhile, but never knew exactly what it entailed, I took apart an old stock motor, the bushing in the endbell came out easy, but I couldn't get the one out of the can to break free.

Be aware that you should speak to the race director at your club about this, some may have objections to you running bearings in a stock motor, as it's effectively cheating, and the gain you'd get isn't worth that label!

Jake, just buy a 19T motor...... those come with bearings.

Not sure where you are racing, but if your track follows ROAR rules then you CAN NOT do that.

I would make sure and check with the other racers and the race director to make sure you can run that motor if you do change the bushings to bearings.

You need 2 bearings (duh) and a punch of some sort to push the bushings out and to push the bearings in. It's very easy.

if you have an old armature, insert the longer part of the shaft (where the pinion goes) into the bushing, but from the outside of the can. a few taps on the armature will loosen the bushing

Sorry on our site, should be fixed now...there was some server problems...

The reason they sometimes are super tight is because they typically are cooled before install, so when they heat up, they get a little bigger, so they have a nice tight fit. Our tool basically forces them out without damaging them or your motor....

As for the bearings, we sell those too....on the site in pairs or single. Ours are the same ones you get in the motors, not a cheap bearing that will fall apart when spinning 30k+ rpm...
