    • Fitting the new Power Motor to the previously purchased Climax
      Finished up today by adding the side frames and painting. Here’s what I did to make it work for me. I needed to cut off the end of the motor shaft as it stuck out too far and hit the Climax boiler. The screw head on the brass motor cover assembly needed to be filed down to help reduce the
      rear frame height. I actually used a dab of two-part epoxy to level the brass cover to the motor as the screw head kept it from seating level. I let that dry overnight. I then added a shim washer under the front truck to make everything level. I love the results and the wheelbase and overall appearance of this new power truck kit is way more prototypical.
      Next will be the Shay.

    • Fitting the new Power Motor to the previously purchased Shay
      Went smoother than the Climax because the height seems just right. The side frame castings are a great fit but I do recommend some dressing up with a needle file. I also think it would be nice if the gears were black instead of white but I’m not going cry about it.
      To sum these motors up (in my humble opinion) I feel that they are smoother and run more quietly than the PowerMax motors. They are also more prototypical in size and they match the front trucks well. These do require a bit of modeling skill to install and fit but nothing the average modeler couldn’t do. Well worth the upgrade. Thank you.
