Koltorp - Motors and wheels
This article was published Jan 28, 2017.
Today I did install the motor in the "Holzvergaserlok". First sanded a halfmoon in each end with the dremel to make room for the ends of the flywheel and then carved a bit in each side to lower it a bit. It shows on the pictures that it needs to be lowered one mill more..
Struggled some with the wheels (for the wagons that is, not the loco).. Installing them felt like brain surgery on a fly .. Totally frustrating.... Didn´t go so well, will try again another day. Made spacers about 2*2mm with a tiny hole in the middle for the pinpoint wheels. So far ok, but getting them in place with the axles and good free rolling wasn´t that easy....
Also put on some first primer on the pechot well wagon and bogies.
