Welcome to the Strathpeffer Junction shop. UK shipping for OO Gauge ringfield adaptor kit orders is £2.99, irrespective of how many are purchased. We also ship to Ireland, mainland Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Whilst I have good stock levels for most motor kit components, some motor shipments from my suppliers are affected by events in China (and now globally). Out of stock kits will be restocked as soon as possible, but I may not be able to provide a specific timescale. Please subscribe to updates for out of stock products (on each product's listing page) and you'll get an email notification as soon as new stock is added.

Dispatch: My wife is currently pregnant and in the government-defined more vulnerable group, so I have had to suspend next day dispatch and reduce the amount of contact that we have with public spaces. Until national restrictions are relaxed, I will ship orders at mid-day each Tuesday. Where possible, I will try to post items that are not 'signed for' on Fridays as well, but I cannot guarantee it. Please rest assured that orders will be shipped as soon as they can be, but it may take a few days longer than normal.

Thank you for your understanding and support. Stay well.

Lima O Gauge Motor Upgrade Kit for Class 33, BB 67000 & Diesel Shunter (LO1)

£15.75

Only 4 left in stock

Description

A brand new O Gauge Lima ringfield motor conversion kit for Class 33 and diesel shunters, comprising:

    • a high quality 9Vdc low-noise can motor,
    • computer-designed 3D-printed adaptor,
    • replacement pickup retainer,
    • a 12-tooth gear, and
    • a length of heat shrink tubing.

This kit uses a 9Vdc motor, so as long as you’re not pushing your model really hard or running it at top speed for prolonged periods, a diode voltage dropper is often not necessary and CV5/CV6 programming is optional.

As with all of our Lima kits, the conversion process is fully reversible, so the old ringfield (pancake) motor can be reinstalled at any time. The adaptor is also reusable, meaning the motor, adaptor and/or gear can be replaced with ease, if ever the need arises.

Compatibility

This kit is compatible with Lima’s UK outline O gauge Class 33 and diesel shunter models (and other models using the same original ringfield motor).

    • Class 33
    • SNCF BB 67000
    • 0-4-0 Diesel shunter

Note: This kit is not compatible with the Fowler Class 4F steam locomotive.

Shipping

Please note that due to the size of the motor, this kit must be sent as a ‘small parcel’ and therefore shipping costs are a little higher than for our OO gauge kits.

Disclaimer

We can accept no liability or responsibility for any damage or injury occurring from the installation and use of our motor replacement kits.

Installation requires modifications and the use of tools, some of which have the potential to damage you and/or you models, as well as other components and equipment.

Users must not commence work unless they are confident that they have the skills and experience necessary to complete it successfully, and install these kits and undertake work to their models at their own risk.

Any images showing a Lima bogie are for information only. The kit includes no original Lima parts, only those components listed as required for conversion.

Usage Advice

1.  The motors used in these kits are 9v low-noise DC motors designed for CD/DVD drives. The output from a DCC decoder or a DC controller can exceed their voltage rating depending on how hard hard the loco is being worked. Whilst our own tests (and those of many others before us) show that these motors are capable of handling voltages higher than their rating, in order to avoid motor burn-out, prolong motor life and achieve prototypical speeds, we recommend:

    • For DC/Analogue use, speeds are kept low manually via the controller and consideration should be given to using a diode* voltage dropper in order to reduce voltage going to the motor (as outlined in the instructions);
    • For DCC use, speeds are kept low manually via the controller, decoders should have their CV5/CV6 value reduced (if available) and, particularly where CV5/CV6 adjustment is not available, a diode* voltage dropper should be considered in order to reduce voltage going to the motor (as outlined in the instructions).

2.  With these CD-style motor conversions, it is good practice to: i) maintain very high speeds for relatively short periods only, ii) keep running on steep inclines to a minimum, and iii)  avoid coupled up with excessively long rakes of coaches/wagons.

3. We recommend that locomotives fitted with can-style CD motors are:

    • Not run without a DCC decoder as ‘Locomotive 0’ on a DCC model railway layout (this is will lead to over-heating and rapidly ruin the motor), and
    • Not placed on the tracks whilst a high frequency track cleaner (such as the Gaugemaster HF-1/HF-2)  is in operation. There have been some reports that the frequency can damage the motors, although it is not something that we have tested.
