    Default Atlas motor needed

    Looking for 1 or 2 Atlas scale speed motors for a RS-3...Need the flywheels and saddles with the motor.
    All out at Atlas with nothing for the near future. Let me know if you have some to sell.
    Thanks, Jim in Minnesota

    are you looking for a motor because you do not have one
    or are you looking a motor that fits?

    you can use almost any 5 pole Atlas scale speed motor if you are willing
    to pull the flywheels....

    ok...

    to swap the motor you are going to need to get in there.

    I am able to move the flywheels and even if I agree to do that for free,
    you will have to pay the post office for the pair of shippings

    so why not use that money to help buy a puller for the flywheels?

    for the motor... hunt e-bay?
    If I were in a rush I buy one I was sure had the grey motor.
    one of the newer Atlas releases.

    for the puller... I use the NWSL puller 2
    order direct or from other on-line place or a retailer....
    I guess the bay may have them...
    usually what is available from amazon costs more on the bay.

    and you will need a metal rod about 1/8 or 3/16 to use as a stop
    when pressing the flywheels to set them.
