Plarail/Tomy/Trackmaster - “clam shell” Motor Disassembly - Reassembly Tutorial
#1
Here is a quick video on how to disassemble and reassemble the engine from several different Thomas engines but mostly found in Diesel, Duck, Mavis, Diesel 10 and some others.  A sharp eye from Super notes that the tiny spring looks to have fallen over, I missed that completely, so be sure to have that in place when reassembling. 




Here is an image showing where the spring goes. (Thanks Super) Big Grin

Excellent video Ripley. Videos like this reminds me of my first times opening any of these motors and how nervous I was. After a while one realizes that these are so mechanically simple that it is no longer intimidating. One piece of advice I can give anyone opening a motor for the first time is to snap pictures as you go so you can reference the placement of the parts. This might have been a problem years ago but in this day and age with cameras on every phone and others carrying small video cameras its easy to do.
