    OS 46 rear bearing replacement

    OK.. So I replaced the rear bearing in a OS 46 AX (Used boca bearings on this). Upon putting the engine back together, I notice that the prop is slightly harder to turn over than from normal. It doesn't have that "Pop" when you turn it over from compression. It turns over easily, but feel some resistance.

    What do you think ? Crank shaft is fully seated in engine. Have not run it yet, just want some feedback it this acceptable and ok to test run the engine.

    Thanks

    RE: OS 46 rear bearing replacement

    No Problems with the bearing replacement. Test fired the engine and it ran fine. Put 4-5 flights on it and it responded well to all throttle settings.

    Was just a little worried that I did not get the crank properly positioned when re-assembling ? The prop turned over alot easier after the first flight.......Probably just had to break in properly and loosen up.
