Ordered bearings finally. Boca bearings was the only vendor that had them.

Heated the housing up and finally removed the rear bearing. Used Dawn grill cleaner to clean the engine, reassembled and it's ready to run. The custom backplate will have to be replaced first but I'll machine a new one while I wait on a fuel order.

Silly question. I acquired one of these. Does your carburetor have a rotating assembly in it like regular glow carbs normally do for throttle? Mine seems to be frozen.

BTW this one is for sale. I have a complete fan for it too if anyone is interested, motor makes good compression.
