I am putting together a lightening motor that will be fitted to a Trackmaster frame, i hope to use it in the the Uk short track series next season, There is one part i cannot find anywhere which is the oil scavenge pipe in the sump, mine is very rusty and unusable, has any one got one sitting on the shelf or no where there is one? part number 68-0560.any help would be gratefully received. Paul.
I have a few removed pipes. You might be surprised how long the inserted piece is, and also how hard it is to get them out. I used a Benzene torch to heat up the casting real hot, and even then it was a bear to twist and pull them out. Getting them back in, and positioned, would be even more trouble I would think, as out is less Fussy! I'll look them up, and if there is a good one, you can have the thing.
Before JB Weld, we used Marine-Tex. We used to say, "if it can't be fixed with Marine-Tex, silicone seal, or duct tape, it can't be fixed."
(You may want to frame this but )I agree with Gary. JB weld is good for plugging, leveling out cases that have been hacked at and filling cylinder heads. The times I had used it to try and secure something in place hasn't proved to be a good outcome, I think the reason is there isn't enough free area that the JB weld can fill in and hang onto.
Something like araldite which is an epoxy adhesive may be just fine, and heating the case up first.
