    Push rods and prop shafts

    Post  Polycell on Mon Apr 21, 2014 12:38 pm

    OK Easter eggs found and eaten lets get on with this dive unit. Motor bracket built prop shafts loosely in place servo push rods again loosely in place so what and where are the best water tight push rods and prop shaft to be found. Bellows over seals for the push rods any advice welcome as to what to use and were in the UK can I buy such items
    Thanks

    The advice you have been given over on Model Boat Mayhem looks very solid.

    Plus if you search a little on here you will some suggested suppliers of bellows on ebay and also Simply Bearing for O rings, oil seals and bearings - a good supplier in my opinion.
