My motor locked up as I was trying to start it today. Less than half a gallon through it!! Took it apart and the front bearing was in pieces. Looks like I am down for a few days until I scrounge up some cash. I may break down and upgrade the Raptor to a .50. I hear good things about the OS .37. Guess I will have to weigh the upgrade costs. GROUNDED That sure hampers the learning process.

if it's just the bearing you can replace the bearing, clean out the engine and muffler (important to flush both) and try it again. Bearings are just a few bucks.

I ordered a new bearing and will see what happens. I still don't know about it though. I have not heard the best things about Webra. I am going to fix it but may just keep it as a backup and go with an OS. I have been considering the .50 upgrade anyways. I am going to wait for the bearings to get here before I decide.

If I were you I'd give it another try just watch the mixture don't let it run lean. If the engine isn't working out in your Raptor then save it for an airplane, make a heck of a engine for a 25 size sport airplane.
