In Step 3 of our Tekno ET410 build, we assemble the rear bulkhead; shock tower, camber link mount and body mounts.
In Step 7 we’ll be using CA glue to keep some locknuts in place. You’ll only need a small drop – be careful you don’t glue your fingers to the plastic!
The rear bulkhead goes together much like the front; press the two bearings into place, slide the output shaft through and secure the outdrive with the M4x4mm setscrew. Blue threadlocker is suggested here.
Using 6 of the shims, feed the 10mm ballstud into the mount. Blue threadlocker is suggested here.
Attach your assembled camber link plate to the bulkhead.
Grab your rear diff and slide a 10×15 bearing onto each side of it, then drop it into the bulkhead as shown. Make sure you put a light bead of black grease on the gears. Cap off the bulkhead and use the four 8mm screws to keep it in place.
Attach the wing mounts to the rear tower. Note the orientation of the tower.
Attach the body mounts to the tower.
Assemble the additional body mount. You don’t actually use this as a body mount (it’s more for the EB410), but you do need it in place to help keep the wing mount attached.
Manual states to add a drop of CA glue to the locknuts to keep them in place.
Attach the shock tower assembly to your rear bulkhead.
Final step is to cap off the bottom of the bulkhead using the M2.5x6mm screws to keep it in place.
Another simple step. Both bulkheads are done, time to get the suspension mounted up!
