Need help finding a part

New postby the-mailman on Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:14 pm

I had to take one of my motors apart to remove some debris and lost the clip on the shaft. It flew away somewhere in my workshop. Does anyone have or know where to get an E-clip or C-clip to fit a 4mm shaft? I tried MSC and a few other places, but so far no luck.

I would think that Mighty Small Cars would have that item in stock

I thought so too but they only had 3 and 5 mm clips.

I never thought of that. I'll look for one and try it. Thanks.

If you can get the size in "MM" I may have one in my box ....probably either 4mm or 5mm.

I think I have a clip that might work for you. If the wind is not too high, I will be at SP on Saturday. If not, I will be at SP on Sunday morning then go to Shearwater for the indoor flying.

Thanks everybody, but I found what I needed. I have a burned out motor for my Spitfire and it had a clip that was the right size. Should have checking my old junk in the first place.
