Does anyone make a alignment jig for the pd motors. I have seen the ones for the C-CAN and the D-CAN. Any help would be much appreciated


Thanks

I really wouldn't worry about it. Just run it till it needs rebuilt, then send it off to Ron or Pro Slot.

Just add a bottom shim to fill in the can height gap to make it flat . I let Goat-boy know we needed more tools.

I measure the Euro at .620" tall. C can's laying around here vary from .626" (Mura Green) to .620" (Proslot Dragmaster).
