View Full Version : One Way Bearing in Electric Drill?
01-28-2001, 02:29 PM
I have recently bust the EZ start, a tooth broke of one of the gears. I now have a dilema. Do i replace the gear and carry on with the EZ start or do i try something different. When i dissasembled the EZ start i was able to remove the one way bearing from the broken gear. The one way bearing fits into the end of my cordless drill and will turn over the engine no problem. My only concern is that a lot of credit has been given to the YAnk eliminator. Would i need one for this method of starting. Or will the one way bearing stuck in the end of my drill suffice. In theory the bearing should just slip when the engine starts. What do you think. Am i missing something about the yank eliminator? Please help and keep on Rustling.
Honestly you are not missing a thing. A cheap DeYanker can be made from a 10mm 1/4 drive socket and a 1/4 drive drill adaptor. The One way bearing can be spot tig welded to the socket. An extension for the socket can be used instead of the drill adaptor. Useing one that is about 3 to 4 inches with the ratchet end ground off will give you better drill clearance from the tire.
For appox $3.00 you can have a DeYanker that works just as well as the original.
excuse me while I pass some gas

I receantly bought a yank elimanator the problem is that the thing is designed for touring cars and it is a little to short. my drill chuck rubbed my tires. I did the next best thing I took a peice of aluminium round stock and turned it down and added about an inch and a half to the length then I drilled a hole in the end make it a little tight and press fit the one way bearing that came out of your ez start in it making sure that the arrow is facing outward cause once you press it in it is not coming back out. if you need more specs on this homemade yank elimantor email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drive it fast or get off the track
