I would think it would be best to not replace it........ It's really hard to get it aligned perfectly and in the same alignment as it was before. Thats just my thought on it though.

Thats what I usually do but I have got a real good can with strong magnets that I don't really want to get rid of.Ihave already ran two arms through it figured it was about time to replace the bushings.
Thanks for the suggestion though..

Some of you are saying that it is not a good idea to take the bushings out of a stock motor, does that mean that I shouldn't follow the method on motortuningsecrets.com? Could I use the toothpaste and cutip method while the bushings are still in the can? This is probably a stupid question, but they say to use cheap toothpaste on the site, does it really batter if you use better toothpaste? I know it may be a little less abrasive, but Im not going to go around looking for cheap toothpaste.

It is abit risk taking the bushing in the motor can without using a bearing puller as damage might occur. I alway take both bushing and do use a toothpaste to polish the inside and alway polish the armature shaft at the same time. Works great.

I could still do that with the bushings in the can right? Do you use the armature shaft (the armature that you are going to use) to polish the bushings with the toothpaste and that polishes the armature at the same time? I dont have any polish, will just toothpaste suffice? I know I wont be able to polish the sides, but I don't theink that will really make a significant difference anyway.

I just bought a Monster Pro. Its weird, on break in its pulling about 9.5-10 amps but when its on the track its just about as fast as a 55turn lathe motor. I tried reedy 767's with no luck, im running offroad with 78/21 gearing do you guys have any tips and tricks to make it perform like it should?

No load amp draw means nothing pretty much. Your bushings could need to be broken in more, or there is some other peoblem in the motor.

On the subject of polishing bushings...... Normally I will take a Q-tip and some billet polish. Just cut the Q-tip in half, then put it in a dremel. Then use that to polish the insides of the bushings, and it doesn't take that long to polish them. Try to get it perfectly straight, but if you have a drill press that would be even better since it will be perfectly in line (or really really close).

The Monster is a high RPM motor. You may want to go down a tooth or two on the pinion.
I have also used red springs on both +and- with good results.

Since its 2 runs old, i could understand the bushing need to be broken in more, to polish them, could i use a brass polish such as nevr dull or something to that extent?

Do you polish them inside of the motor, or do you take them out? (Im a little confused about what your saying.) If you polish them inside the motor, how do you polish the sides? It seems like if I took them out and used the method on motortuningsecrets.com to put them back in, they would go in straight. They say to put the bushings on the arm then put it in the can and put the endbell on and tap it back together, it seems like it would be impossible for them to be misaligned if you did that.

Btw, would Brasso polish work well for polishing the armature shaft? I think Im going to use toothpaste on the insides of the bushings (to avoid taking too much off) and brasso to polish the sides.
