CGX-L motor bushing replacement
Posted 02 March 2021 - 04:54 AM
Are there recorded sizes or paart numbers?
Anyone took pics/video with instructions on the process?
Now that I finally picked one up, I'm thinking about hedging my bets and either buying/modding some while it's still not hard to buy them, or just buying a pre-modded set if anyone was industrious enough to do this on the side.
Before I hear a ton of crap about it - those bushings, GUARANTEE premature failure, it is not a probability, so I'd rather get ahead of it.
Thanks in advance!

As a matter of fact I just ordered some more as I am going to do another mount soon. It takes 2 per gearbox, side by side as the bearings only come in 2mm width. The actual size is: OD 8mmX ID 5mm X Width 2mm. Make sure you get ABEC7 type bearings. That code is for High Precision, Close tolerance. Do not get the Ceramic/Delrin(plastic) as they are not high precision. Only get the stainless. Also. You will have to pack the bearings with Super Lube Teflon grease..

Internal output shaft bearing (1 per gearbox):https://www.ebay.com...872.m2749.l2649
