Default King Charles rebuild

OK for my next trick I'm going to see if I can resurrect this old Lima crate. I rather like it in blue

Doesn't run although the bloke who sold it to me reckoned it did grrrr

OK first question. Where does this part go. It fell out when I opened it up and I didn't see where it came from (yeah I know rookie error )

That part clips on top of chassis just ahead of the cylinders. There are bright metal parts sticking out of front of cylinders (valve rods) and they sit in the flat ends of the valve linkage in front of cylinders.
REF This part = valve linkage.

There is no reason why it will not work it is just a simple Ringfield motor. Just make sure that all the wires are soldered on correctly and the brushes and springs are all OK . Try testing the motor with wires from a controller set at about 1/3 speed to start with. Touch the wires one on each brush holder and the motor should work.

The Lima pancake motors are nice things. Its a shame they mounted them in the tender, as their tank locos have these motors, so they will fit. The only other issue with Lima is they tended not to link up the middle wheels. At least my class 09 chassis has all six wheels linked up.
With a good set of traction tyres, those Lima kings can pull a good ten coaches on a level layout, if not more.

The reason it fell out was the body holds it in place.

That blue is the most amazing colour I've seen for an express steam locomotive. Its a shame it was prone to showing up the dirt (Hence why they went back to green).
