I have 6 K-line G gauge GP-9 motor blocks kicking around waiting for me to find a use for them. BUT they have a problem and I was wondering if anyone has a good idea how to fix them. The axels slip into a sleved gear. Much the same as USA trains motor blocks.
The problem; the axels slip inside the geard sleve. I'm looking for ideas how to fix this problem.
What do you think?

I've had the same problem.... Paulie... You can fix them by drilling a 1/16 inch hole all the way through the gear collar and axle and insert a 1/16th roll pin. However, you must keep the wheelset gauged properly during the drilling. The axles can walk and narrow the gauge. I've done that fix on my GP-38's and U-25's. It all started 'way back about 9 years ago when we kept breaking the Bachmann drive axles.

Contact Barry at Barry's Big Trains for more input. :)
