Default URGENT!!

I have a savage 25 with the stock 15T clutch bell. I bought 2 new spur gears for my truck. I didnt notice they were both 52T spur gears till I got home. As i was replacing the spur gear with the 52T the clutch bell wouldnt go throug the 52T, spur gear is too big .............is the 52T spur gear for the .25 engine?

You need to replace the pinion gear at the same time to create a proper mesh.

49 tooth spur gear is standard with the Savage 25.

What?? No you don't....

The 52 tooth is a bit bigger than the 49 you are replacing... just slide the engine over, check that your mesh is good and tighten the engine down.

W ell Idon't know what to tell you... I run 18/49 but once when I was without I ran the 52tooth with the 18tooth CB (which is considerably bigger than the 15) and had no fit problems. Even HPI says that a stock Savage can run the 15/52 with no fit issues. I have heard the PS version has some clearance limitations (even though you say you have an RTR) .... can you tell what is keeping the engine from moving?

i got a 52 tooth gear, due to the fact i stripped the 49t one, and my LHS had no 49t in stock. i have a savy 25, and the engine fit fine. my gearmesh is fine, and maby i can get better wheelies now.

I too am running 52/15 and have perfect mesh (well as perfect as you can get with a copier paper spacer).

Check your motor mounts again, perhaps you have dirt stopping the motor sliding all the way over.... ?
