Tonic-X Z30A replacement bearing help
Can someone tell me the exact dimensions of the bearings in a Tonic-X Z-30A 1110kv motor?

I'm using one in my E550 and after about 240 flights it's squealing (even after oiling). I'm going to source some new ones.

Thanks

Can anyone tell me how to get the bearings out of the Tonic-X motors? I have it apart and have tried for quite some time with tools, shafts, etc. but I cannot get either bearing out.

Hasn't anyone replaced their Tonic-X/Z-Power bearings yet?

Just tap them out, maybe lightly heat the bearings, they should come out with not too much force.

Craze,

I've not found a good way to tap them out. There is a flange on the inner side (center sleeve?) that butts up against the bearing on both ends of the shaft. I cannot get any tool on the inside to stay on the smallest edge of the bearing for me to tap it out.

I've only been able to try to get a large screw to grab on the inside and then pull out on the bearing.

I guess I'll try heating a bit to see if that does the trick.

The two Z-Power motors I have, have the bearings glued to the stator and I've never had to replace them. One motor I used to have started squealing and the bearing had come unglued, but that doesn't sound like that is the problem with yours. The only thing I can think of is heating it.Stan

Thanks Stan. I did try heating it but still no luck. The previous time I had the motor out for oiling, I noticed that one of the bearings was not as smooth as it should be.

I will try a few more times while heating it but after that I think I'll call it a loss and get another Scorpion or Xera for the Raptor.
