HPI Baja 5B 5T 5SC / Re: Disintegrated Air Filter
« Last post by Grim Reaper on July 12, 2020, 08:39:01 PM »
How old was the air filter? Was it clean prior to use? Seems odd to just fall apart like that. Worst case if you still have trouble with the bolt u might need to use a dremel to cut a slit on the bolt head deep enough to get a flat head screw driver to fit the slit, then it should crack loose

You would be better getting those bolts out!!

Use a heat gun and get them hot, then unscrew them.

HPI Baja 5B 5T 5SC / Disintegrated Air Filter
« Last post by Fat Corgi on July 10, 2020, 08:53:20 PM »
Hello all,
   So I ran the Baja 5B SS I just inherited for the first time the other day, and I went to start it up again today. Stared briefly then stalled and I couldn't get it going again. When I took off the air filter I discovered that the foam had disintegrated and been sucked through the carby and into the engine. So there is oily foam gunk all through the engine. I've taken as much as I can apart but one of the bolts holding the engine to the base is seized and I can get the engine out of the buggy. So I have to try and clean it out as best as I can with the engine still in the buggy. The bolt that has seized is the one on the bottom of the clutch housing. Do you think I'll be able to get the majority of it clean without taking the rest of the engine apart? Could I flush it out with some petrol or something like that?

I originally planned on building one from scratch so ordered a set of sidewinder plus plans from Edge Buggies but it stalled simply due to the fckn horrendous price to do it,then this popped up on trade me for a fckn good price and it was loosely based on the original sidewinder.....rear swing arm set up is from the plans rest is just improving it and when finished will owe me about half what it would have cost to build from scratch
Will definitely log the whole build but as Iím a mildly retarded muppet !woohoo! I have my mate who is an engineer helping....he comes round at least one evening every week so progress will be consistent thumbsup

The swing arm pivot needs to line up with drive sprocket so have started mounting the v-twin.....

Along with the shit a*** motor it also had The shaft drive and rear axle from the quad.....so that all got the biff and have started building a complete rear swing arm and axle that will have a chain drive to suit the v twin and discs with  hydraulic handbrake.....
