Default Flywheel Collet for MTX

Picked up a new OS .12TZ for my Mugen MTX3 and I cant find a Flywheel collet that will fit properly, any suggestions?

When I pulled the flywheel off from my old engine I noticed that the collet was in bad shape so I would like to replace it. I'm having a hard time finding one for my application. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

you should have got a new collet with the motor...did you not?
Worse comes to worse, if the old collet still works, but just "looks" rough, just use it.

no I did not and I was quite surprised.

I wish I could re-use the old one but its in really bad shape. When I tried to mount the flywheel on the new engine using the old collet, the back of the flywheel rubs up against the engine and the flywheel wobbles around too much.

well problem solved....I always keep different collets around as different motors and different flywheels sometimes require a little mix and match. Also don't forget about the spacer/shim that sits behind the collet.

It looks to me as if OS dont provide collets with any of their motors. I had to go to the LHS and rumage through their box of junk to find one that fits and luckily enough they had one.

On Mugen's I like the collets that come with Nova motors.
