Rivarossi Spare Motor

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Model Railroading : One Thread

Need help in locating a source for spare parts on Rivarossi locomotives. I picked up an HO Heisler (older release) at a silent auction that the little pancake motor was shot. I can't see how to retrofit with a conventional can motor. I tried the Model Expo folks and they don't handle spare parts. I'm told a shop somewhere in Ohio stocks and orders Rivarossi parts - but can't seem to locate them from any sources. This project will include conversion to the Proto:87 code 64 wheels and anyone who can help with a motor replacment would be greatly appreciated. Ed McCamey AKA: emccamey@cheerful.com
