It was helpful but it didn’t have all the information required to install.
I had issues with placing bearings into the 3Dservisas Hubs. I was told to use a press, which don’t have atm. I was able to force them in.
3Dservices now offers bearing pushed in hubs. It’s a good option for nubs like me
I was going to install the gear drive but I ran into an issue. The axel on the motor is way too long. I didn’t have time for the group ride so I decided to use belt drive with 3Dservisas Hubs with Trampa 44T and Gunmies. It was fun but lacked torque.
A few weeks later, I started to cut the axel with diamond blade then used angle grinder to grind down the axel. I did not do the best job but it worked.
One of the mounting brackets didn’t fit the tb218, so I had to angle grind some hangar material off for it to fit.
I was stuck on these thin metal pieces, didn’t know where to install. It was not on manual. I did get written instructions, which helped a little. These metal pieces are suppose to help protect your motor from the grease you put into the GG.
Does anyone have a recommendation on grease?
After taking apart the drive gear several times, I was able to fit these pieces in.
That could explain why wobbles at high speed other than bushing/truck setup. I used bearings and spacers in the back to make a good fit with the trampa pulley. The spacing could be off with the front. I also ride hard and heavy, these were my first tb218 trucks and rode a lot of miles on them.
I completed the 3Dservisas gear drivetrain tonight. It took me awhile to make sure the gears ran freely (correct amount of blacklash, ). Then the M 2.5 by 10 screws kicked my ass. They are tiny. There are 12 of them. You must do them before mounting trucks. Small hands and good tools help. I got stuck on step 4
I used white lithium grease. It was not paste, as recommend by Deckoz. I’ll probably grab some down the road.
