Do I have to take the "gearbox" apart to put the grease on? Where exactly do I put the grease? (I sound like a newbie because I am one )
http://www.xceedrc.com/product/103245 this is the Exceed grease.
when you apply the grease, http://www.serpent.com/product/902411/ put a little inside on the needle rollers. turn it a few times, and wipe off any excess from this part http://www.serpent.com/product/902412/

This is what I use, just add about a toothpick amount and work it in.

Or....if anyone is lucky enough to have the old school serpent one way lube (purple bottle) then you could put a few drops a race and be solid. I found a bottle that i had from 12 years back and its the best ever made. If you put a drop on your fingers and rub it in it feels dry but lubed. someone needs to make this stuff again.

Thanks a lot for all your help guys, I really appreciate it! You might just have saved me a burned out OWB, and a fair amount of unnessecary fiddling

One last question; do I have to disassemble the gearbox everytime I want to lube the OWB? Or can it be done without disassembling it?

There isn't that much disassembly involved just to do that. Its only one e-clip and its not necessary to lube too often. This is not something you lube in between runs however its a good idea to do so before a long main.

I have a problem with the nut to tighten the flywheel of my centax clutch on my 353.
I can't get it off anymore, turning in both directions has no effect anymore. Any tips/suggestions how to get it off? I am a little bit affraid to just start using the dremel on my engine.

it isn't, unfortunately. I know for sure that the nut is slightly dull. It turns heavy in both ways, but doesn't come off or tightens.

sounds like your flywheel isnt clamping properly to your cone. if you take the back plate of the engine, is the crank turning when you are trying to undo the nut ? if so, try to press down with what your holding the flywheel with so its tighter on the cone. see how that goes.

if it is the cone, try filing the front f it, so the nut isnt tightening on the cone , but on the flywheel. i suspect the cone is protruding through the flywheel and the nut is hard up on the cone.

I'll take a look at that, but I am pretty sure its the nut itself who is damaged. When I put a full turn on the nut in either direction I don't feel the compression of the piston getting to its TDC. when i turn the flywheel a full turn i notice the compression very clear.

if its turning on the crank threads, then it is stripping the threads, which isnt good. hopefully its not the crank threads stripping, but the nut. if you can use a screw driver to lever underside of the nut as you turn it, see if you can go little bit by bit to help pull it off as you turn it. or if anyone else has a better idea ???

Patto, you were right, the crank is turning with the nut! whis means the flywheel is loose, not the nut. Blocking the piston usin a tierap did the job. Thanks guys, i messed this one up
