Hobbico Mounting instructions

Photographic Instructions

1. You may cut the wires at the lengths of 2.5 inches to the positive far pole

terminal and 2 inches to the near, curving the wires around in the machined

pocket. Separating the wires will ease placement in the pocket and you will

want to shave some of the raised plastic on the Hobbico housing around the

wires (towards the center) to facilitate the bend and fit into the pocket as

it is a rather compact fit.

2. There are crimp connectors attached to the terminals which you

can remove (pull off) and crimp or solder to your wires. Take care to

connect them for proper directional spin of the starter motor.

3. By removing the upper acorn nut on the Hobbico housing you can

screw on the 5.0mm x .8 hex coupler provided. (Loctite)

4. At this point you can attach the adapter to the Hobbico Housing

using the 5mm cap screw provided.

5. You can then align and drill for the two 3mm (.118") screws also

provided. As an alternative, if you have the tools and

inclination, you could drill and tap the housing for those

screws and avoid the difficulty of putting the nuts on the

screws within the recesses of the housing's backside. If you use

the nuts, I would suggest using loctite to prevent them from

vibrating off.

6. Slide the battery on and don't let it jump from your hand from

the startup torque!
