Any one ever changed one of these?
Is this just pushed on?
There is a groove on the inside at one end.

Yup
Just mix up some jb weld, coat it on the inside and push it on. Wipe off the excess before it dries.

JB weld
Just helps it stay on.. Jeff told me in the past to do that when putting it on. Sometimes without glue it can loosen and slip off.

The alignment tool is for pressing the 1005 fan into the clutch, you won't need it for the Spectra-g Malc.

Glued on
Just noticed the glue holding the original one on.
How do I get this completely off and clean ready for the new part?

Use a razor blade
To scrape any excess glue off from the old one.

Chance of damaging anything
Thanks Raja

Definite wear/flattening of the ball seen so while I have it all to pieces doing the conversion and have a new Uniball I think I need just get on with it and just do it.
Didn't want to put myself in a situation where I remove the old one and damage something else due to the lack of spare parts.

Warm the ball with a heat gun. It makes the new ball snap into place MUCH easier with modest thumb pressure. For that matter, it makes the old ball easier to pop off as well.

Glad you got it done Malc
New one looks good! I presume you glued it on as we discussed?

You're going to REALLY like the Spectra with the RC motor
Its one of the best conversions RC motors make models smoother than PUH and the Spectra has such a free drive system autos are the best from all other models I have tried (except the 1005 which is the same).

Looking forward to trying it out.
Just those issues with the kit that are hopefully sorted now.
Including the supplied clutch plate being the wrong one giving no clearance at all between engine coupler on the engine and the plate with the uniball fitted.
Zenoah part supplied and a CY part needed to get a gap between the two parts and even now I think a near 3mm gap is too much.
