Turnigy motor, shaft on wrong way.

Hi all,

I have this motor:

Turnigy motor
trouble is I need the shaft to be coming out the other end.

I am relatively new to the hobby and wondering how to do this.
Is it simply a matter of removing the circlip and the little grub screw and hammering it

Some info from those in the know would be very helpful,

Many thanks,

Thanks for that.

Are these things hard to move then?

I do not have a drill press so that's out

A vise will work. They will push out easily, but don't try using a hammer. Steady pressure is what is needed.

You don't necessarily need to move the shaft - the thing on the right hand side of the photo bolts onto the rotating side of the motor and takes a prop with an 8mm hole (I know because I've just bought that exact motor)

I also bought one of their smaller motors, and knocked the shaft through with a hammer (I'll use a vice next time!) - it wasn't hard.

What RobinBennet said. I just received the 50-55 motor, and this is how I have it set up. Use the socket head screws provided to mount the included prop adapter to the side opposite the shaft.

Fair point guys but if I do it that way I have to either mount the engine lower or higher than it should be (6-7mm or so) or remove a bit of strength from behind the firewall as it's in the way of the shaft.
Also the shaft will be rotating extremely close to a big LIPO.

I think I'll do it similar to the above but box the shaft in a bit, just to keep the batts safe and replace some of the strength lost from cutting.

You guys have been great.

Thank you.
