Good for you :) Are you going to keep the OS engine or mod it to electric as H.P Freak suggested? I'll keep an eye out for one of those cages :unsure:
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Thanks, but I think I will try to make a cage out of alloy rod myself, that might be easier and cheaper.
I appear to missing one of the diff outdrive axles :( (hope I just overlooked or miss laid it somewhere)

The OS is in pieces but have to get the sticky residue (old fuel?) off of it.

Think I will rebuild it as far as original as possible, but think it will be a shelfer not a runner.

:) Waterbok,
For your diffs You just have to clean them and put hard silicon grease. For the engine, put it in nitro fuel to remove old grease. The rebuild is very easy.Only 1 place for 1 piece. :y:
Very nice job

That looks very similar to most drives, but only if the dimensions match :huh: You could always file the flat part on to some new ones :ohmy:

These could be good :)
