Mine gets frequent lock up and I want to replace the one way bearing and the sleeve. I check out the sleeve find out that there are so many different part number? Which one should I get? Also, which is the best one way bearing that will not lock up.

Have you tried cleaning the one-way clutch with alchohol and then lubing it up with ATF? I'd try that before replacing it.

When I try detaching the sleeve out of the locked up one way clutch using a hammer, one of the rollers in the clutch fall out. I put the roller back and the clutch seems ok, but I do think this is a good idea to continue on using it.

Purchase a one way bearing (22 US) from Boca Bearing (in FLA)
they are a higher quality and you wont have this issue again.

Rudy - the best luck I have had is the KDE one way bearing with a new Align sleeve, it is still running with over 125 flights on a gasser running 700 mains with a Hanson G290RC engine, lube is ATF.
