A stop in Woodie's sounds good.

The barmaids are really friendly.

Got the motor off finally.



At the end of the shaft of the geared micro-motor there is a small hole where the shaft of the old motor went through to the worn gear on the underside.  I'll have to enlarge the hole for the new micro-motor shaft and install a new worm gear.  Since the flat plate is brass I'll solder on a mounting plate at a right angle to attach the new motor to.

I should have plenty of room to install the RC parts once I get a new cab knocked together.

Hi Michael :wave:


Good luck finding a suitable & affordable worm-gear with a 3mm bore !! :old dude:



Romford in the UK has been suggested to me ...

... but I haven't yet looked into that, for my 3mm shaft micro-motors.

Possibly annoyingly costly, in relation to those LOVELY motors at a Buck fifty a pop ! :f:



I looked on eBay for plastic worm-gears with a 3mm bore for AGES ! ... ???

... and basically found NOTHING that would do the job.



I thought about drilling-out the bore on the more commonly available 2mm bore types.

But came to the conclusion that there simply isn't enough spare material there to do this.



5 Einsteins :brill: await the solver of this critical critter connection conundrum ! :shocked:



:mex:



Si.



What kinda TOP SPEED are you going for on this rusty ol' critter Michael ?

Quantum drive ?

Bullet Train ??

Other  .  .  .


;)

Si,

The geared motor I have is 60 rpm, so rocket ship for this critter.  It should give a nice slow speed but faster than a crawl.  I have some plastic worm gears that I might be able to drill out a larger bore.  I did find a couple of brass worm gears that I can give a try if necessary.

Anywho I'm committed now so I'll have to figure out something.

Michael,

For future projects, a slow/smooth running, radio controlled, track powered, sound equipped, 4 wheel Model power loco can be had from Trainworld for just $45. Check it out. Larry G

Larry,

Is this what you're talking about: https://www.trainworld.com/manufacturers/model-power/model-power-966711-ddt-plymouth-lndustrial-diesel-u-p-dcc-with-sound-remote/

I did not know this was available.  I'll have to look into this.  Thanks!
