Default Brush hoods

Is there a way to get the brush hoods out so I can replace the bushing with a bearing? Thanks.

When you take the endbell off there is a tiny set screw inside that holds the tube in place. I think it takes a .035 wrench to get it out. Be sure to pay close attention to how every thing is on the tubes as there is a little metal piece that completes the circuit to the capacitor board. It would probably be best to just slide the tubes back just enough to change the bearing and not take them all the way out. Just curious why do you want to put a bearing in place of the bushing this is illeagal?

I posted this else where when a question was asked. It's relevent here.

My last Brood order was a stockstar and a Peeler Edition CO27.

I ran the CO27 for 10 weeks and have been running the Stockstar for 6 weeks.
3 teeth bigger on the Stockstar and I am getting the same lap times - which may not make sense from what I have read.
The stockstar has been quoted as having RPM as high as the epic X.
I guess no two motors are the same.

I don't temp gun, but I would say the stockstar does run hotter.

I lathed the Stockstar and changed it's brushes last night and will race it tonight. I think this has improved it based on run in current. I am going to push it one more tooth.

The comm of the Stockstar seems to get really dirty, more than any other motor I have had, but the actuall aount or wear is low, 4/100th of mm. after 3 weeks (15 x 5mins + practice).
There is not much brush or spring choice for the Stockstar that I can locate.

I hope you don't plan on racing with that motor after you put the bearing in it. It's against ROAR rules for stock motors, and many tracks frown on such motor tampering.
