My revo doesn't work because have a leak somowere in the engine. When I connect EZstart the flywell spins and splashes fuel everywhere. Anyone know what it could be?
I do not want to disassemble the engine without knowing something ... is the first time that I will disassemble it .
Try checking the engine bearings, it sounds like one of the bearings is going bad.

My life is busy, but I'm still lurking! 24 RC's
Is your fuel line connected to the carb? Carb cracked or not? The only other spot would be the front bearing has a good leak but if it is a considerable amount of fuel look at the first two options.

Fuel line connected and carb OK. Already disassembled the engine and it seems that is the front bearing because the center bearing moves up and down a bit ... how do I take it off?
I've tried and it seems to be too tight or maybe I'm doing wrong , have you ever replaced it?
Take a socket small enough that will fit through the rear bearing but large enough to rest against the front bearing. Then use a mallet and tap the front bearing out. The rear bearing requires a stripped down engine to head to a 325° oven for about 10 minutes then the rear should fall out.

Done...I hope to get the problem solved
Thanks for the help
To take off rear bearing I used boiled water, put the the part where the rear bearing is in hot water over 2minutes... was enough

Did this fix the problem?
Yes the rear bearing came out with no problem (the bearings were full of gaps)but I'm still waiting for the new bearings. Takes about 15 days to get here, should arrive next week

Cool, I know some of these places take their time lol. But it's worth it.
