  1. Took rotor off and it runs put it back on and stopped now the movement is no longer working and rotor bearings are screwed up in a fit of rage i launched it accross the room so its now in my junk bin.

  11. Appreciate the help Iam in USA and I ordered some alum from ebay should be here by friday Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. What solution did you use Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Ok It is 100% stainless steel. What is the correct name for the solution I need to look for. I will just go to my local Home Depot Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yes I have heard of that before but the problem is I don’t think there is nearly enough sticking out to weld. I don’t know the size I just know it is a tap 8 stem Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
