  • Mini motor

    Digging thru boxes and old parts I've found a few things. Sparemaker manuals and troubleshooting. Older manuals for the original machine with the distributor flipping pins off the side and the original 'durabin'. Then I found a box of these little motors with a right angle gearbox on them. I've been wanting to do a 1/2 scale 70 for some time now and these looked perfect for the table/sweep motors. They literally look like a half scale combo motor/gearbox with the exception of the gearbox being square (about 3 inches or so on a side) and a toothed pulley on top of the motor where you would normally put the crank. Cannon plug like a combo so I'm assuming it can be reversed via switching. I looked thru the 30's manual but couldn't find anything similar. Anyone know what it might be? It has AMF tags on it. Will post a pic by the weekend. I found about 7 of them.

      It's possible, since you found 'A' machine stuff as well, that those could be the stepper motors for the 'A' distributor and roll over bin. I don't know exactly what they look line but that's what it sounds like.

        I found it going thru the parts manual for the A. It's either the bin motor or distributor motor. They have different part numbers but look exactly the same. Here's a pic of each....and a few other
        historical documents' I've stumbled across. I have 1- 23 of the service bulletins.

          If it's a bin (roll over) motor, it was reverseable, due to the action of the roll over cups. The other one is the dist. drive and, if I remember right, it's a constant running motor and a slower runnning one too. It's what moves the dist from place to place. Pie you wouldn't by chance have found the complete dist drive asy. laying around. Need one to run one of my two A dist. Also if you want to get rid of the motors, I know someone who might do some trading with you.

            I'm assuming the rollover motors would have more pins than the dizzy's. Didn't look at them all that closely. Haven't found anything else other than small bits and pieces that I don't recognize. Still uncovering stuff tho.

              I also found a strange little motor among our weird parts collection. Didn't really look at it, but it certainly didn't have a gearbox to speak of. I'll snap a picture one of these days and add it to the thread. I also have a copy of the "A" parts manual, and I didn't really see a match.

              MP Chassis Tester

              Good morning,
              I have built a tester for the MP Chassis for the 82-70 machines. Instead of using the cam switches
              I am using relays. My question is to anyone that may...

              *sigh* Hello friends..

              I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

              Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
