I realize this isn't a helimax/kinetic board, but the kinetic is very similar to, uh, I forget if it's the Raven or what, but its been said to be a rebranded Century.

Anyway, I replaced the clutch bell and liner on my kinetic, but I think I damaged the bearing when trying to remove it from the old one and put it into the new one.

I'm sure I could just measure the bearing and find a replacement, but I don't feel like tearing the heli appart before I have the replacement parts, so I'm wondering....

Does anyone know the part # or size, or a link to a Kinetic .50 clutch bearing?
Does anyone know of a good tool that I can use to pull the bearing and to press it into its new home?

Thanks.

Don't know about the bearing size. But you can use sockets to drive the bearings in or out.

Yeah, I think I did that, but it wasn't going in straight and as a result I think it got damaged.
Thanks for the tip though.

Ahh. That would make it straight going down. I don't have a drill press, but I do have a mill. That aught to do it, but it would require some prep time. I'd still like to hear other suggestions too.

Thanks.

Before fitting the liner, heat the bell evenly and the bearing should drop in without too much fuss or force.

clutch bearing

jrett,
I'm not sure of the bearing size, However there should be a number on either end of the bearing. With this number check out "Boca Bearings", [url=http://bocabearings.com].
Send them an e-mail with this number and they will reply.
I use an "Align Trex 450" bearing removal tool in a vise to remove and install clutch bearings in Raptor's ( 50 & 90 ). Fits perfectly.
Regards

"Align" removal tool

jrett,
The "Align" one-way bearing removal tool is part # AGNA1010
I did a quick search you on the "Horizon" site.
[url=http://horizonrc.com]
The part is located under: helis,parts,optional parts & accesories, page 14.
Unfortunately "Horizon" currently shows this part on "back order".
However you might check out "ReadyHeli".
[url=http://readyheli.com]
I got this tool from "Dymond Modelsport" a couple of years ago.
[url=http://rc-dymond.com]
If it's any help, the clutch one-way bearing ( needle bearing )
for the Raptor clutches is ( 6 x 10 x 12 mm ). Part # HF0612(X) at "Boca Bearings ".
I hope this is of some small help.
Regards

Lomar,

The bearings that is in question here is not a one-way bearing. They are the bearings that support the clutch bell on the clutch spindle in the Kinetic 50, Hawk series, Falcon series & Raven series.

Yug's comment about heating evenly works very well. As the bell in the kinetic is of GRP and not aluminum, you must be carfull that you do not heat excessively, as it could warp the bell. But heating gently with a monocote gun or something similar will do the trick.

I find that by pushing them out from the opposite end with a small screwdriver works very well.

Also, you will usually find more info relative to any helicopter or brand by posting your questions in the forums here on RR that are designated for those brands. In this case here in the RR Century forum.

Brain bearing

Hey oldfart,
Any tips for tuning my brain. I have restricked fuel-oxygen supply lines, bad "know" plugs, worn anyway bear rings, and badly scarred, pitted,worn grey cell liner.
But he (jrett) did ask for the "clutch bearing" number.
So I can see my confusion, I think ?????
I've noticed that things become 25% larger when viewed through the bottom half of my "bi-focals". Might explain why I think my planes and helis are so far away sometimes. Then I tilt my head up a little more and all is right with the world.
Regards Sir

LOL - re-bifocals - I can certainly identify with that, but my problem with them is more trying to focus while reading heli magazines on the porcelain reading chaise
