you realize there really are muffler bearings right?? my snowmobile has one so the engine can move a little bit under torque, while the exhaust stays fixed. its not a ball bearing but rather a plan bearing.

Be sure to use your metric adjustable wrench and screwdriver set.

Changing a muffler bearing can't be anywhere near as bad as having to replace a sphincter valve. I just go buy a new heli when that happens.

I dont think "WTF" bearings can be used as muffler bearings.

WTF™ (WATER-TOUGH) BEARINGS NSK’s WTF™ (Water-Tough) Bearings have
been developed using advanced technologies such as
ultrahigh clean-material technology for bearing material
and using NSK’s proprietary heat-treatment
technology.

My heli exploded in mid air today. Canooter valve was clogged, blew a hose and that ruptured the turn signal fluid reservoir which caught fire and made its way to the fuel cell causing a massive explosion 100 feet off the ground. There is nothing left but a 30 foot crater in the ground which the men in black have restricted access too and anyone that tried to take pictures of it was shot. Its been one hell of a day!
