Cd motor

Post by Spo »

Hi,Bought a conversion kit with motor gear heat shrink etc.
The gear fits the cd motor perfectly but will not fit the gears
Is there a different cog/gear for different locos
I want to convert a Lima railcar
Thanks spo

I fitted a couple and seem to remember ordering a kit to fit a particular loco. It isn’t one kit fits all.

Can you fit the cog from the old motor to the new one?

I've fitted quite a few of these to different locos. The CD motor spindle varies as does the thickness of the spindle and the body. The differences are usually identified on the selling sites by original production company (Hornby, Lima) as well as type of wheel configuration (BO-BO, CO-CO). They usually fit although sometimes the cog supplied needed to be replaced by the original. Wherever possible I use the original when I can.
