Also, check your mesh of the pinion and spur gear. If it's too tight, that can cause strain on the front motor bearing, and also heat up the motor. The proper way to set mesh is the paper method. Place a piece of 20# bond paper between the pinion and spur. Mesh the gears and tighten the mount screws. Remove the paper. Mesh is now set.
