I've had these two cuties waiting in my project pile for awhile now... I have everything needed to build them up except for the itty-bitty motors.

 

Anyone have these K's Mk 1 motors available for sale?... or know of a source?

 

I have been through all my Strombecker, Pittman, Lindberg, etc., motors and they are all too big.

 

Is there a modern motor small enough to be substituted?

 

I guess I could try an HO motor if necessary, but would like to locate the original vintage items if possible.

 

Thanks,

 

Jim

Do an English search. AB Slotsport, vintage slotcars… Penelope Pitlane has chassis kits for similar cars.

 

The Triang three-pole was standard in all second generation Scalextric. Seen a "K's Mk-1" and the Microperm motors in the 1960s.

 

A JK Hawk 25 might not be vintage, but that or the current FF-050 cans should fit.

Yep, they come up pretty regularly on eBay UK; another good contact is Phil Smith (scaleslotcars), he can probably find one for you. 

 

I thought this chassis fit the 13D too, because later Super Shells cars came with that kind of motor. 

 

The K's was a popular motor in the early '60s, maybe up to '64, but the couple cars I have now with this motor seem awfully slow...

Don,

 

Not sure it applies to the F1 chassis but Super Shells changed to Mabuchi 13UO (the ones with the big circlip can bearings) on there "Popin chassis" when the K's were no longer available; adapters were made. If this applies then the person to speak to is Tony Condon in the UK who has all the old stock from SRM, don't think he's on this forum but is on SlotForum.
