Maybe you can PM or email the guy that started this thread back in 2004, it looks like he is still active on the forum but the stuffwelike web site seems to be gone.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=303456

The links in that thread are all dead now.

But looking at the images it looks like that kit was intended to be used on a reduction gear setup with the magnet housing facing away from the direction of flight. In a case like that, the pulling forces from the prop are not a factor as they are on the output shaft and not the motor shaft.

It is sort of like in a pusher setup, the prop pushes the magnet housing onto the motor so the clip is not needed.

But you could add a circlip groove to the shaft or use a shaft that has one. What size is the shaft? I don't see that mentioned in the thread there.
