Default Speed passion 13.5 timing board

Hi Guys,

Sorry if this has been covered but my search skills have failed me.

Rebuilt my 13.5t today and when putting it back together the timing board (the black circuit board) can move freely even with it all done up.

What has caused this and how can I fix it?

p.s. I have swapped the circuit board and the rubber spacers to no avail.

Perhaps you have got some lubricant on the silicone seal? Or perhaps the endbell is not fully seated in the can?

Assuming neither is the cause, all I can think of is that if you put something sticky on the seal (like a thick grease), or cut out a thin paper shim, it might hold the board in place once tightened.

I'll bet that the stator is loose in the can........I have seen a couple now with this problem, nice actually because now you can adjust the tension you prefer on the sensor adjustment tension. Carefully tap the complete motor on the bench, towards the sensor/bullet end if you want tight, towards the pinion shaft end if you want loose. Of course do not hit shaft or sensor plug! When set to your liking, VERY Carefullly wick ca glue into the vents as to glue the fiber boards to the can. Tip the motor so the ca runs down and around to the fiber board, just don't get stupid with the ca, a little is all you need.

The newest motors are so tight in this area you have to damn near take them apart to adjust timing. Yes I have banged the snot out of some newer ones, and they do not move, so I guess "they" solved the loose stator issue.

Good Luck!

Thanks everybody,

I hit the stator gently towards the end and it moved back to where is was. The sensor port now doesnt move at all.

Thanks Drillit that has put a end to me pulling my hair out.
