    Ez start problem

    The one way bearing on my revo 3.3 started slipping every time i would try to start it so I replaced the one way bearing with a slightly used one from my pull starter. Should I just buy a brand new one way bearing?

    Sometimes you can just clean them really well and they will work fine. Did you try that?

    If you want you could buy a new one. Soak the old in some cleaner then dry it and drop it in some auto motor oil (many say Mobil 1 but I won't buy a quart just for needing a little so I use what is leftover from doing oil changes).

    I've cleaned it with rubbing alcohol before and it worked until I ran the engine and it got all slippery and oily, I'll try soaking it for a day and if that doesn't work I'll just buy a new one

    electric motor cleaner or brake cleaner will do the trick the first time.
    All game. No pain.
