A brand new lighter use OO Gauge Lima ringfield motor conversion kit, comprising:
- a replacement 9mm thick 6Vdc high torque can motor,
- computer-designed 3D-printed adaptor,
- 2 x 8-tooth gears (one spare), and
- a length of heat shrink tubing.
This kit requires no permanent adaptation to be made to the motor bogie and therefore the original ringfield (pancake) motor can be reinstalled at any time; the motor, adaptor and/or gear can be replaced with ease, if ever the need arises.
Please note: This is the smallest Lima replacement motor that we supply. It is compatible with all of the same models as our LA1/Co-Co/10mm kit and is a marginally cheaper alternative. However, due to its smaller magnet, we recommend that this kit is not used in models that will see heavy use or will be expected to haul long rakes or coaches etc. We market it as a ‘light use’ option, best suited to locos that see less frequent outings.

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.
