Thrust bearings are designed for side or axial loads, and cannot handle much radial load at all. The rolling element in a thrust bearing can be a ball, needle or roller. Thrust bearings come in both metric and inch sizes. Dimensions to consider when searching are the bore, the outside diameter and the overall width. Operating specifications to consider when searching for thrust bearings are rated speed, static axial load, and dynamic axial load. RPM for a bearing running in oil is going to be higher than one running in grease. The static axial load is the maximum axial load a bearing can withstand while stationary without suffering permanent damage. The dynamic axial load is the maximum axial load a bearing can withstand while revolving without suffering permanent damage...more »
Industrial lubricants are oils, greases and other substances designed to reduce friction, binding or wear. Specialized characteristics may enhance thermal conduction or reduce electrical resistivity. Other industrial lubricants can provide sealing against moisture. Industrial lubricants are available in many forms such as low viscosity oils..more »

Q: How do I remove the bearings from my RC engine?

A: Place your engine housing in an oven at 325-350 for 5 to 10 minutes. When you remove it from the oven your old bearings should fall right out, if not heat the engine a little longer. We also suggest you place your bearings inside a ziploc bag and keep them in the freezer overnight. Then slip the bearings into the engine while it is still slightly warm. These instructional videos show how to remove and install RC Nitro Engine Bearings Part 1, how to remove and install RC Nitro Engine Bearings part 2.
