Tight gear mesh OS.21 mounting help
So when I tighten the motor mount screws down the motor rises in the mount causing the mesh to be way
to tight, like its difficult to spin, I can get the mesh to have some play but the motor isn't tightened all the way causing it to wiggle in the mount slightly. any tips to get the motor mounted with correct mesh?
Sounds like your motor mount screws are too long.
Yeah, you shouldn't have that issue if the engine mounts solidly on the mount.
im still using the stock mount screws though, thought this motor was a drop in lol
I'm not sure about the Revo motor mount, but on my Jato there are spacers that go on top of the mount between the motor and the mount. Maybe something like that is missing.?.

I'm thinking there's something with the flywheel not sitting on the crank right throwing everything off....
ive discovered that i can change the angle of the mount From the manuel-The ideal spur gear/clutch bell gear mesh for
Revo is 0.1mm. To set the gear mesh, place a
strip of standard letter/A4 size copy or printer
paper (about 0.1mm thick) between the
mating teeth. Loosen the two horizontal
engine mount screws and slide the engine
mount up to push the clutch bell gear against
the spur gear so that the that the paper is not
too tight to pull out or too loose that it will fall
out. Tighten the two horizontal engine mount
screws securely. When the paper is removed,
you should feel only the slightest amount of
play between the gears (almost none) and
there should be no binding or friction.
