There’s a wide bearing that sits on a lip inside the pulley, the spacers then the truck. It sounds like you don’t have the bearing and/or spacers installed.
You did the same thing as me and forget that we use ours different than they are sold because surf-rodz.
IDK about @BuildKitBoards pulleys, but in the Enertions press on, there is a flanged bearing which stops the pulley from back out after the axle nut is tighten.
Looking at his instructions, it does seem like the pulley would slide right off and onto the hanger?
Also on stock Calibers there’s no room for another bearing
It comes with the bearing. I don’t know the size of the to of my head, but I’ll go get one in a bit and measure it.
I currently have two bearings stacked on top of one another in this pulley and can fit up to 3.
*this is not the bearings it comes with. Set up for 10mm axles on surfrodz
Thanks that was very helpful.
10mm .3937" -.0003
Outside Diameter D
26mm 1.0236" -.0004
8mm .3150" +.0000/-.0050
So if I want to try this, I need a 8mm ID 26mm OD 8mm wide bearing and I need to cut down the hanger of the caliber2 about 8-10mm.
Or get one of the caliber hangers @Boardnamics is making. Shoulder bolts for axles like surfrodz so you can adjust axle length as needed.
Sigh I misplaced my e-toxx cronin with mount, this caliber is just a stand-in until I find the damned thing. The-least-amount-of-work-possible, which is turning into exactly the opposite lol. Good to know the cheap CNC guy is making more cool stuff!
Hmmm I have a mig welder that I haven’t made friends with yet. Maybe a 608 and a washer?
For now I used 3:1 marine adhesive shrink on 5 spokes, and 648 on the bearing seat. 2:1 shrink wasn’t very tight, and slipped right off. I had to stand on it and dance around to get it to seat. I hope I got it seated evenly enough.
Thats why I like bolt ons. Once its bolted on its bolted on. For a press fit pulley to work it needs a bearing seat on the inside plane to torque against the hanger. Looks like yours don’t have that. Thats just strange.
Fraid not it will cook the bearing instantly
