Has anyone got a spare retainer + bolts for the Hobbyking wheel pulley? I bought the pulley set not realising there was no retainer included and the retainer rings are out of stock
You could supplement the ring with a large washer and drill the holes out and just get away with is and buy when they are in stock. I was running my first month or two like this because of similar issue.
Thanks for the tip, I’ll try it when I get back to my tools. Cable ties are holding it for now
Did you ever get some or find a replacement? Just realised this after iv ordered 2 sets! Still on backorder for the retainer rings!
Mine is still held on with cable ties! I haven’t ridden it much though, maybe 20km, my X car beast had purple light of death and haven’t got around to buying anything new
There is a 3d print file on thingiverse that fits. If you can’t find them or print them I can help you out. Those wheel pulleys are something like 25mm wide.
I said I’ll print them
We have found a file thingiverse but it sounds like you have already printed a retainer before. Which one did you use?
Cheers for the offer Ben like @moon said he’s kindly offered to print me some…this is the file I found and iv ordered some 2" hardware,bolts that @squishy654 said fit so should be all good,been a while since iv been out on my board,drv error that I’m having fixed on my focbox by @Martinsp…looking foward getting back carvin this summer!!
No, that’s not the one. It needs 4 bolts. I’ll dig it out.
Yeah if you could link the one you found we’ll have a look.
Nice one,was just gonna use 4 holes and leave the other 2 but if you have the exact one needed even Better!
I have the file but don’t seem to be able to find it on thingiverse.
Something like this.
It would be much easier to go to your hardware store and buy a 45mm od washer and drill the holes in it. That’s what I have done on both my boards and it has worked like a charm
The actual part sits against the core of the wheel recessed which I think looks better but that was gonna be my Last resort if we couldn’t find the file.
Yep that’s the 3d printed one. I used socket heads. Cap heads might look better. Like you say @WARMAN, the wheelside is contoured to spread the load.
The washer actually does sit against the hub of the wheel, it just appears not to, compared to @bigben’s as he has larger wheels and the core seems to be further into the urethane if you know what I mean. The hubs on flywheels are 45mm so I got a 45mm washer
