Yep, got it now. An optical delusion. One of the troubles coming, as I do, from the 'other' side of the Equator, is that I can get things upside down.... like the sun (that's that yellow orb in the sky, in case you've forgotten) that shines from the south when in the Northern Hemisphere, which on more than one occasion had me heading west when I wanted to go east. Well, at least most of you drive on the correct side of the road, which is not the right side of the road.You had me believing it too until I took a more careful look! If you follow the worm tooth around the motor rotor you'll see they do mesh!
Hi AKWeber84 - Most of us LGB Internet Dealers in the USA sell the LGB Buhler short shaft or long shaft motors for a similar price $59. You can email me if you need one: OldDominionRailways@gmail.comAny recommendations on a tutorial video on disassembly and testing a motor? Also any recommendation on where to source a new motor in the US?
