I'm just building my first T-Rex and I'm finding the "shaft ring" (part 100 in the drawing on page 5 of the manual, Align P/N HB6003) is extremely tight on the one-way bearing shaft. In fact I had to drive it on and then it makes the gears extremely tight. I barely got it off to examine it closer.

Does it need to be reamed out or drilled larger? Or should it be extremely snug?

thanks

spacer
It is just a spacer and should be a light push fit.... if it locks things up just free it off with emery on a screwdriver!!

Trex improvers are brave!

thanks for the info. I'll ream it out some.

It's so tight that when it's pushed on all the way it's hard to spin the gears with your fingers. Loosy goosey coming up.

thanks again.

I have had the same problem. I think it might off been a bad batch. The center of the spacer doesn't look like it was bored all the way through . There is still some flash on there thatrs making it a tight fit. I just used the old spacer.

Hmm,

I did notice some 'flash' at one end of the spacer, on the inside. I knocked it off as best I could with a tiny round file but maybe I didn't get it all out.

I do have an older non-V2 kit for spare parts, I'll dig the spacer out of it and see if it's better.

I'm just happy to get that far into the build before reaching my first snag. Usually I don't get near this far.

so far, so good.

thanks
