I thought it had worked because I was able to drive it around in limp mode without an issue, but as soon as I got the car to drive normally and accelerated in the max power mode the rotor shifted again!
> I'm to the point where I'm tempted to try using something like jb weld or a brazing rod around the outside of the bearing, i think that the gap is too big for the loctite retaining compound that was previously recommended, I don't have any idea where to get a new bell housing for this motor, so it doesn't seem like I have much to lose by trying something a bit more permanent on this.
