Re: UC Bearings

Hi Bob I think I have sorted this issue out on mine now so here goes. 688 Bearings are glued into the wheel ER0202, the spacer tube ER0229 passes freely through the bearing. The hole through the end caps ER0205 should allow the axle ER0203 to pass through but NOT the spacer tube ER0229. So fit the w...

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

When I ordered Lipo batteries they did not have the 4000mAh specified by Armortek and sent me 5000mAh. On reading the Armortek instructions it warns about damage to the servos. I am ignorant about such stuff so will these be OK they fit the battery compartment. Have I read item 3 'Using a larger vol...

Re: UC Bearings

Bob
Was your question answered elsewhere?
If not there are spacer washers in with the kit plus when you tighten the axle it takes up a lot of play. Re the sleeve inside the bearing I haven't glued it to the bearing, I have let it move freely.

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

Been working on the rear axle unit, it mentions in the instructions to take care with the rear brake spring anchor bolt doesn't protrude into the axle tunnel. This is important, there is very little clearance inside the axle tunnel. The tunnel casing is a bit narrow so you have to be precise. Diff w...

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

Nice surprise today the Motion and Sound packs arrived early. Again a super nice set of parts. The brake discs need a bit of deburring as stated in the instructions and I recommend shaping the brake arms as, again, recommended in the instructions. Just waiting for a battery and charger form my son, ...

Re: UC ER0123 and ER0124

Bob it may be worth easing off the larger part as they bolt together to see if something is out of line. I checked on mine and I don't have such a 'step' on mine. Always better to see if you can adjust the parts before you alter the instructions.

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

I have been looking at a couple of YouTube videos of UCs, both show a long 'piano' hinge fitted to the rear tool box. I got mine from 4D Modelshop Ltd, and it is 'Hinge piano 304mm long 9mm wide fully open.

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

Few more bits and pieces. I have tried to 'improve' the split pins that hold the track links together by pinching the head to reduce its size. Also I would recommend 'Small Scale Lights' for the 7.2v powered LED side, head and tail light. Super helpful site that offers advice as needed. Still not se...

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

Nice little job working on refining the tow hook and adding a rear light housing. I am getting this info from various Utube videos of UCs. Anybody know what voltage the battery supply will be? I have asked before but maybe folk know now. (Just seen from this photo I need to make leaf spring clamps t...
