  1. Both diesels done (class24 and 25) Not the easiest refits if I'm honest.
  2. Considering where we live( 200 miles off the coast of Africa) the first charge of 45 euro's for the steam outline motors ( 2) & just 10 euro's more for the diesels. (2 )..Can't really complain. I've moaned about Bachmann engines (having 4 of them give up the ghost) but they've come through with spares & to be honest also given some good advice from the techno guys.
  3. Bachmann sent me 2 motors for the class24 & 25. Working on the steam outline engines was a doddle compared with the diesels. So many delicate wires once you've got to the engine...which just prises out with some effort! Also managed to knock one of the wires off the new motor fiddling it into position. Anyway the good news is it's fixed and running (class 24). Might wait until tomorrow to tackle the 25. 4 hours work on the 24 was enough for me!!! Thanks again for replies/help etc.
  4. Hi John, Yes you're probably right. Not got a quote from Bachmann yet but I suspect the price will be bigger than the 3MT & 5MT motors I bought. Now the 24 is in bits I'll have to bite the bullet anyway.
  5. Eureka. When you've done one the others will be easier! Prised slowly one end out & that was that. Success. The pliable plastic harness remains in the metal body top. Couple of fine wires came adrift with the rough handling, (lights at front) but not a problem This motor is far larger than any of the 3MT/5MT.

  7. Well I was on a roll. (Maybe a new page for this?) Getting the diesel class 24 motor out seems a different kettle of fish. Anyone done one? Can't find anything on youtube. Pics below show I've stripped every screw out but the motor seems held in. Prise it out? Not sure.
  8. Good days work. Now the 3MT up and running. Might strip the diesels & see about their replacements. Thanks again people for the help.
  9. New motor arrived...fitted...and AWAY WE GO!!!! Running perfect. Thanks to all who gave advice. Cheers
  10. No, not the worm, the part on the video where I can slightly touch it and the motor starts running. Positive wire connected to it.
  11. Hi Micklner, Being a bit green with these new Bachmann motors... Is that brass part, the brush? I've just come across the exact same scenario with the class 73049, (pushing it in & motor flies away, as in video) plus there was a very small deposit of black debris beneath the motor.
  12. Thanks Theakerr, took it all on board. PS. Any recommendations for a soldering iron kit to attack the circuit board etc on the 3MT tank? One's I have are well past it. Those on Amazon about 40 Euro's/pounds any good?
  13. Cheers micklner, resigned myself to that. Postage to and from Canary Isles is pretty high, might just tackle the job myself. Can you believe? rain stopped play...here in the Canaries. Wall to wall blue skies an hour or so ago. Needed the dust shifting off the railway anyway!
  14. A lot of play on the spindle and worm. Copper terminal wants to be pushed in to increase speed.
  15. Tes!!!! Me and techno stuff. Listed as private, forgot to go public. Done now, plus next video with a possible answer to the troubles. Stripped everything down and bit by bit got to this stage. (previous note)
