Digital conversion

Contents of this offer

Remove the black, plastic worm from the old motor’s shaft. This can be done with your fingers or the Tramfabriek gear puller. Push this worm on the brass adapter supplied with the kit. Then push on the new motor shaft. It might be needed to glue it to the shaft to hold it in place, use Loctite for this.



Solder the wires to the contacts on the model. Note the colour of the cables. If you would swap the wires, the model would drive in the opposite direction of all your other models. Then place the motor assembly onto the chassis and place the metal clip. If you have trouble hooking the tabs, make sure the motor is aligned with the model chassis.

Reattach the upper body to the chassis, with the new motor in place, by screwing it back together.
