LNER Y...something?

I bought an N20 motor a couple of weeks ago, along with a pair of 3D printed gears to fit 1/8" axles & the N20.   My original thought was to fit it to this small LNER tank I picked up at an estate sale;

While the motor would probably fit, it won't fit between the frames.   Which means needs to angle into the boiler.   Which hasn't enough space. 

 

Playing around with the brass chassis, I think it was made undersized.    The chassis will 'walk' on my test plank.   I need to see if I can spread the frames some.  Hopefully, if I can drop the motor into the frame, this'll all work.    I might use the N20 on another project, though.

Made by K's. Good luck getting that lot inside the body. Mine has a 1015 motor and a High Level gearbox.

When I bought the engine, it had an open-armature two-pole motor with a worm, but no spur for the axle.  The motor-mount was collared very close to the axle, so I could never suss out what gear I needed.

Definitely a Y8 or NER K. I would have problems fitting that motor in my 7mm versions.

I used a motor like that in my 3d printed Y7 (and that's with 3d printed frames). You might need to make new frames if it wont fit. The back end of it will likely reach into the cab though.
