A brand new OO Gauge Lima ringfield motor conversion kit, comprising:
- a high quality low-noise can motor,
- computer-designed 3D-printed adaptor,
- 2 x gears (one spare), and
- 2 x lengths of heat shrink tubing.
This kit currently uses a D/V 9.0 motor with internal components designed for up to 14Vdc. Comprehensive testing confirms that it performs reliably without voltage dropping, so no diodes are required for either DC or DCC usage, and CV5/CV6 programming is optional (depending on your preferred running characteristics).
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.

Need for speed?
This motor kit is suitable for 12 volt usage and whilst it’s the best option for most situations, it will run a little slower than our 6 volt motor kits. Those seeking the fastest possible speeds for HST sets etc. may still prefer our 6V upgrade kit with a diode voltage dropper.
We have tested the adaptor in UK outline models marked with an asterisk below. Based on visual assessment, this adaptor should also work with all ringfield models listed. Very occasionally, light sanding may be required around the lugs to ensure clearance.
