Re: BLI N&W H2a HoppersHi Bob;

While you are at it, get the NWSL re-gear kit.

Plan on attaching the motor with silicone caulk or double sticky foam tape, so any motor that will fit in the space is suitable.

Subject: Remotoring a Rivarossi Y6

I want to revamp one of my poor runners, a Y6b with the cab-mounted can motor. Its very balky, I got the unit from someone and it was obviously not well-cared for. Even with alligator clips on the motor contacts, it runs in fits and starts and not steady at all on the bench. I was wondering how huge an undertaking it would be to replace that motor with something else. I have another motor that runs better from a junked Riva loco but the holes in the motor case don't match where they need to be to swap out motors.
Any recommendations?
