I find torx bits bashed into stripped hex heads can work otherwise get a few easyouts they are worth it.

Thanks Pete.

I can't remember ever using loctite on anything.

I was going to get some blue loctite on my way home but missed the turn. I was assuming it might be red on those two bolts since every other one has cracked ok.

I might have some red silicon somewhere.

Just a light dab on a few threads?

There was one underneath that goes into the engine that had some on (other two had none) and these two on the clutch carrier. I'm thinking of only doing those.

It looks like a slightly different (better) set up with the coil in the Zenoah and I think I managed to squeeze the kill switch connector on well enough without removing the coil.

It's with a guy at Tweed Heads to get the bolts out. I don't have the room or resources here.

G'day ok Don't use loctite on bolts for engine , main reason best way to get loctite bolts out apply heat , we have found out with many years of racing/bashing best thing to use on your buggy/truck is high temp engine silicone  you can pick it up at supercheap , repco, autobarn it wont loosen with heat and fall out , when you need to get bolts out just a sharp crack with allen key breaks the silicone hold and out they come
hope that helps

This had a Walbro carb in it. Not sure which but assume a 668.
I took it up to Aussie Hobbies on Friday and Chris took a look.
With the plug out there was resistance and metal to metal contact so I went for a Zenoah G290.
I should have been systematic and checked it like that and for possibly seized bearings.
Home today after a stop over and I started the switch.
Found out it was caused by the coil slipping and making contact with the rotor. Stator is gouged a bit. I should have used loktite on the screws when I fitted the kill switch.
I could have got away with fixing that but I reckon the upgrade is worth it.

Issue now is that the Clutch carrier bolts were locked on so tight I stripped the heads of 2 of the bolts. Will need to somehow get them removed and get new ones.

The clutch bearings are fine at the Rovan carrier seems well built in comparison to some I've seen that are plastic. It's solid metal.

Engine fitted and am mostly putting it back together. I'll do the carrier in it.
