    I agree Pete, the 14x8 would be a stretch for the .72, perfect for a 1.00.

    The prop range for the .72 is 12x8 to 14x8, the 12x6 is more suited to a .50 or a .56.

    The piston to liner fit is self regulating, nitro changes won't effect anything any more than flying on a cool morning and then on a hot afternoon.

    This is the rear bearing I found in a 1.00 I bought a few months ago. Mr. Boca fixed me right up. Picture #2 is the 1.00 all fixed up.
