Default Outrunner Motor Question

I just got my first outrunner motor today but I don't know how to mount it using the radial mount. The motor is going into my reflection, It's a Himax 2808-980. How do I mount this?

Anyone? It looks like I need to push the prop shaft through the motor so that it will stick out at the back. Would this work will that damage the motor?

If I do get the shaft to get loose will it still damage the motor or are you allowed to do it?

Don't know about the HIMAX but the AXI, which I'm familiar with, has an "X" piece that mounts on the front and then that becomes the back or the firewall mount with a new piece mounted on the back of the motor that takes the prop. Basically, you've turned the motor around. You ought to check the Hobby Lobby web site for these mounting kits. There's usually an exploded drawing explaining the whole procedure. I have a few of these and they work very well. Sorry if this is a bit confusing.

I know what you are talking about, but my himax does'nt have any screw holes to mount that prop shaft/adapter. The only way is to push the prop shaft all the way through untill it sticks out of the other side. The only problem is that I don't know if that will damage the motor.
