And Wow! You have an oven in your workshop? I would have to admit that an oven is safer than using a torch! Never thought of that!

Actually I do not have an oven in my workshop. I always us a blowtorch. For first timers however I advise them to use an oven. As you say it is safer that way.

I have a complete self contained engine repair kit. I have spent many a late night in cheap motel rooms fixing engines, correctly as well despite the beer and pizza.

Got it all back together and tested it on the bench. Ran great! Sounds much better than before and there doesn't seem to be any leaking.

Thanks again for all the help and advice.

I just got off the phone with Horizon Hobby tech guy regarding my Saito 80 bearings which I replaced with bearings supplied by Saito. He told me to leave the seals on both bearings, this helps to keep the oil in and the moisture out. If in doubt call the engine supplier. cheers, Karl

Hi there.
There is information about bearing shields and seals at the Boca Bearing website. There is a different between the shield and seal application. Typically the metal shields are removed but the seals are left intact. Go to the web site and look for the information in the catalog.
It also tells you which colour of the seal should be facing in which direction.
