Default cant fit heatsink onto motor

ok i have a walkera brushless. (3200)
and i bought a heatsink which says it can fit all 20mm motors..
now i think my brushless is like 21mm so it doesnt fit..
i managed to squeezea small part of the motor into the heatsink (was hard)

the motor is in the heatsink like 4mm
it is stuck and doesnt move.. are heatsinks ment to be like that?(very tight)
and its causing me alot of trouble fitting it in. shall i try to fit it or give up?

ill try get some pics 2morow

Default RE: cant fit heatsink onto motor

Ever tried putting on a pair of pants that are too small? When you start feeling the "pinch" do you continue pulling, or do you get 'em off ASAP? [X(]

Yeah, you're going to damage the motor if you keep trying to jam it in. Don't worry about the heat sink.
