Help me take apart my benchwheelCrap


#1

So, i have a stuck engine at my board.

And for some reason i cant get the drive train off. Or whatever it would be called in “Eboards” language :stuck_out_tongue:

Can somone please help me get it off to i can replace the engine ?
I allready broke the god damn thing getting fustrated at it :'D


#2

Cant help you out with your stuck " Motor " but can help you out with this below :slight_smile:

Motor = runs on electricity
Engine = runs on combustion


#3

nope, diden’t work to go and call it a motor …


#4

You have a picture of whats stuck?


#5

Its this “pulley” i need to get off.


#6

Pulleys usually have a set screw. If there is no set screw, you may have to heat up the pulley with a heat gun and tap the shaft that the pulley sits on with a hammer. Just make sure the motor mount fastening screws to the motor are removed before using the hammer.


#7

where should i look for that set screw ?
Allready did the hammer…
The shaft have move out on the motor side.

Dont know whether its a problem ?, but at this point i am so sick of this shit that i just want it off so i can find an alternative.


#8

Pulley Puller + Heat (to soften the threadlocker)


#9

Don’t use a battery puller, the flanges on the pulley are aluminum and will bend before the pulley moves. You have to use heat then a large flat head screwdriver and pry the pulley off with brute force. Make sure the two set screws on the pulley are taken off first.


#10

hmm, i actually order one like this recently from ebay.
Might have to wait this one out before i try and rip this expensive shitwheel apart.

Memmo to anyone who are gonna buy a benchwheel.
Dont.
Mine is only 1 month old and is ready for the trash more or less.

Jinra i really have tried a lot with the flat head screwdrivers, how much heat do i need for this to work out ?


#11

It’s mostly the torque, just a bit of heat to soften the thread locker from the set screws. I used a lighter and held it to the pulley for a minute. It’ll come off just use a bit of force. I’ve taken the entire drive train apart.


#12

100 - 200°


#13

On one of these benchwheels ?
They seem to bet stuck together by pure garbage.

Those set screws, where am i supposed to find them ?
I cant find any screws on the shaft/pulley ?


#14

there should be two (unless maybe you have a different revision) on the teeth of the pulley


#15

when you say teeth … you mean here right ?
Cuz there was nothing.

Just took the board out with only 1 motor, the other still connected.
For some reason it begins to spin when the board is shaken and get max power … seems like a short …
So now i know for sure i just need to get the motor off and replace it.


#16

Maybe you have a different revision. are there cir clips on the ends?


#17

I wouldn’t be surprised if that pulley is glued on. Without the presence of a set screw or any type of retaining clip somethings holding it on. If its glue, try heat and pull.


#18

there where a clip at the end, a pretty shitty one though …
Broke when i tried to remove it.

Gonna wait for the puller, then try with heat, puller and flat screwdriver …
Cant wait to tell how this shit was garbaged together.


#19

When you figure it out and fix it, would you mind post how you did it and what parts you used on this thread?

I’m trying to put together a thread of just repairs and upgrades on chinese boards. There seem to be lot of people buying these and needing to upgrade or repair them. I want this thread to be like a transition into building your own board from scratch. Learn as you go situation. Lol


#20

I will do mate :slight_smile:I am expecting my parts to arrive any day now, when they do i will post a guide on what i did and how i did it.
