A brand new ringfield motor conversion kit for Lima’s O Gauge Fowler 4F steam locomotive, comprising:
- a high quality 12V-compatible* low-noise can motor,
- computer-designed 3D-printed adaptor,
- a 12-tooth gear, and
- a length of heat shrink tubing.
This kit uses a high-quality 12V-compatible motor, so a diode voltage dropper is not necessary.
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.

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).

Note: This kit is not compatible with any other Lima O Gauge locomotives. You can click here to buy a kit for Class 33/Diesel Shunter/SNCF 67000.
*The motor in this kit features internal components and windings are rated up to 14Vdc, so it can be used with both analogue and digital systems without any voltage dropping.
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.
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.
