Default 1-way bearing on dirt demon

Hi all,

I know this is an outdated truck but I bought it years ago with a buddy of mine and we barely even broke it in.
The motor was froze so some light heat from a torch got it free. I try the wand to turn over the motor and I'm pretty sure the 1-way bearing is shot. My LHS can't help and I'd really like to get this thing running since it has some sentimental value (friend is no longer around).
Where can I find a new bearing or solution to fix it?

Thanks for any help!

Default UPDATE

I decided to try the hotbodies solution...using am HPI 1669 bearing with a hotbodies 11311 rs4 backplate kit. Basically, larger hex on the 1-way and swap out gears in the stock roto case.
I took off the roto case and the motor backplate screws werent even tight. So I took the backplate off and its full of brown sludge. What should I use to clean it out? When rotating by hand, it would bind at one point until I found the tiny pin that goes into the connecting rod floating around in the case
Any help is appreciated, I wanna get this bad boy going today.


Heres the culprit:
