I was excited to receive my first CTI motors and casings today, until now I have only used AT. But after working with the CTI components for hours, I'm ready to give up, either I'm doing something wrong or the parts are defective. The plastic motor liners simply appear to be too large for the casing. With some force, I can get the motor into the bottom of the casing, but I can't get it high enough to screw in the aft closure. And it is really difficult to remove the motor, even though it is only partially in. I've tried a little sanding of the plastic motor liner and a small spray of WD-40 on the inside of the casing, but neither helped. This can't be right, can it? I've seen videos of CTI motor assembly where the motor slipped right into the casing with no resistance at all. What am I doing wrong?
