Dino is indeed a Very good Motorman and he has been helping me with something in particular.However as always you don't have all the facts nor even 1 answer just Diarrea of the Keyboard. Do yourself a Favor and go try to impress someone else because all you are doing is making yourself look stupid by following me around and trying to make me out as some know it all idiot I'm always the first to say that I am fairly new to Nitro R/C. Sorry dino if this taints the spirit in which this useful bit of advise was posted.
P.S. Venom Temp Gauge is Still working Great! I Think you have a fever Stephan why don't you take a body Cavity temp with your Tempgun?

and how can I remove the bearings inside the engine if this is the case of my engine?

good tip,
this happens more than you think and causes serious overheating issues as the crank starts to rub the case bore. It also kills low end torque as it pushes the crank away from the critical sealing window on the intake side

While I was assemling my clutch I found that the rubber shield of my engine has fallen off. Is this common and can dirt come through the bearing and ruin the engine

Ummm, if I were you, I would replace it because would not know how loose the rubber shield is. What engine is this? If it's a Nova based engine, the front bearings are easily replacable. Was there a thin shim before the engine brass collet?

A tip to protect the rubber seals is NOT to put thin 0.1 mm shims. Use 0.5 mm thicker shims as this would be easier on the bearing rubber shield. If it's a Centax clutch, mind the end float though and make necessary spacing adjustments after using thicker shims.

Again.. very good tip here by Mr D....
If possible I even use 2x 0.5 shims(as long as the OD of the shim doesnt touch the outer ballraced housing of bearing).
With doing this, I only use a single shim in front of centax(clutchbell).
Trully, I got this tip from friend in local track which is working very fine to protect front bearing also.
