NSWRcars, unfortunately it appears you have a 1220 motor, not a 1020.  When I bought from Casula I got a 1015, 1024, and was given a 1220 and 2010 open frame motor instead of the 1020 and NWSL 1215D-9 ...

Those weights are interesting, I never thought to measure them.  Weight of the OEM motor is 6g, flywheel is 4g. I can't measure mg but together they measure 10g. I like your idea of packing out the re ...

I'm remotoring my C30Ts. If you're Wombats are chipped I'm guessing you'll have no desire or need to change out the motor and will question what's the point. Indeed the OEM motor has no trouble emulat ...

Regarding bending the pins, it's only very slight. Check this pic below.  The pins are fairly stubby and only stick out 2mm. I put the flat blade screw driver in between them and just bend them a litt ...

[quote=The railway dog]Changing the subject a bit, the electrical connector on the 6 wheel Wombat type tender fitted to my Ixion 32 is now so loose you can see the inner piece slopping around as (if) ...

Whilst doing the above experiment I took photos but was a bit despondent over the results so didn't post any pics. However, whilst it's all apart I'd thought I'd go ahead and track every wire and post ...

[font=Verdana, sans-serif][size=2]This is a spin off from the Wombat 30T thread where I made a comment about using Automatic Transmission Fluid on track. The story goes that I started my layout in a l ...

[quote=NSWRcars][quote]Because I'm DC I've wanted to bypass the board for motor control and just run a couple of wires from motor to engine pickups due to these engines requiring a bit of 'tricity to ...

Hi Old Northern, I've been in a similar boat. I bought three packs of those Jaycar wires and have used one lot and was onto my second using it for everything - slow-mo point motors and relays which is ...

Hmm, that's interesting that the Ixon behaves the same. I don't know when but I'll try that wiring mod soon and will let you know how I go. I too am using a GM controller and bought a Morley Vector no ...

In a post on pg4 you mention that while the engine won't run without the tender connected electrically, it'll run without the tender picking up current?

Yeah  ...

I was going to ask something similar last night but after rereading I assumed TRD was making a comparison that the bogie tendered models have 14 powered wheels while the six wheel tendered ones with t ...

This isn't going to be an answer you might want TRD so I apologise in advance and I understand the wish to get as many wheels powered as possible, however, Smile ..... Something to consider as an alterna ...

I'm glad you asked MJW, kind of. A simple couple of measurements saw me plunging down a rabbit hole measuring a whole bunch of locos and loads and now I'm stuck with the tedious task of entering the d ...

Totally agree. I read earlier in the year about different resistance mats were available and actually saw two on ebay in Aus around the same time. Amazingly the duettes and clippers come up for sale o ...

Thanks DJ. Yeah I've relegated my two H&M duette controllers for future power supply duties after testing a newer loco last year on my first bit of laid track. Damn thing nearly flew off the layout wi ...

Apologies in advance for the long post but I thought I'd do some more comprehensive testing over the weekend before commenting any further and part of that involved unboxing another 48. But before I g ...

I'll have to take better observations when the surging occurs. It's not a single surge, rather it occurs periodically like the loco will go slightly faster than slower for a second and back and forth  ...

Did you replace the speaker while you had the body off?

Cheers

MJW

Nope. Mine are non speaker, all DC. This model has a surging issue only on a down slope with a load. Not a biggie but is notic ...

I know hauling capacity has been discussed in long ago threads but I found an issue in a second hand one I recently acquired which may be just confined to mine, but worth a mention and a look at yours ...

Yeah I don't know what I'll do with that chain.  It's dangling off the side of the bogie for now. Only the big ring off the handbrake lever came undone so very easy to fix. I know what you mean by a b ...

I finally did it, prised the body from the chassis. It was clear that around the pilots or something at the ends was sticking. I started by placing a flatblade screwdriver into the recesses of the cha ...

Bit of an update, I had a brainwave and the idea the 45s might be the same so went on a search. A Liverpool Range blog entry describes the same procedure prior to removal and gives the impression it w ...

This is my second serious attempt to do it and I'm at a standstill. I haven't been able to find any info on experiences or advice on here or elsewhere. I've followed the instructions, studied the expl ...

Oh man..I thought about it.. I saw you mention it, I mentioned it and I have two bottles of 243 in my tool chest, or maybe it's 242. It's red. I just know that I've had to heat with a gas torch some a ...
