Default Orion V2 Tuning question

Can you remove the bearings from the endbell and the can in a Orion V2 motor safely? If so, anyone want to share their secret?

There is actually an o-ring holding the bearing in place in the end ball.Just remove the o-ring and the bearing should come right out with a small tap in from the inside.

Hope this helps.

crank up the timing and use MR springs with edge sprint brushes. Also try to get those DC ul arms as they very good. Might be hard to find now.

It's not more complicated than taking of a rubberband.
Just use a small screw driver or something to pop out the top o-ring and push the bearing out from inside. After you re-install a bearing just put the o-ring in place.

As long as you don't use something sharp the o-ring should do just fine.

No, you will need top drive the bearing out of the can....it's not an easy task.

I make a cool little remover tool than works on most motrs, including the V2 (can side only).....you can remove it to polish bushings too.

It's on my site under tools www.teambrood.com
