Hi there

I have looked in my folder of layout notes I take to exhibitions and find I do have the installation leaflet.  The motor is one of those enclosed in a transparent plastic box.  I bought it c 2005.  [The one I bought for an earlier layout, c 1998 was an open Mecanno motor, and I no longer have that laout or its diagrams or notes.]  So hopefully it is the more recent version you have aquired. 

The notes cover 2 pages.  In theory the easiest thing is for me to scan them and then E mail you the resultant document.  Not sure how we exchange e mail adresses through this forum.  I am quite new to it.

Colin, aka Portpatrick (the name of my current layout)

Ah.  The link looks like the version I installed on Portpatrick Town - the subject of the FMG notes to which I referred.  I do agree it is necessary to add a second "bearing at the far end of the shaft.  I invented one using a "flanged trunion" I found in the remants of my old Mecanno.  But until I installed it, the flex in the t/t well meant the thing sometimes locked up.

Thanks for the guidance on messaging.  I will try it

Mythanks to Portpatrick and newport nobby for your help and assisitance. To be honest as I had no response after a week I 'took the bull by the horns' and phoned Frizzinghall Models and explained my position. They were most helpful and offered to send a copy for the cost of a SAE and a postage stamp to cover the cost of copying. Most generous of them I thought and some recommendation!!.Again my thanks for the information given - it is much appreciated and I will bear in mind the advise re fitting given  John Kingston
