Hello everyone. I recently dug out my first issue American Models B&O 4-6-2 Pacific and gave it a run. The plastic U-joint/dog bone that connects the motor to the transmission cracked right at the motor shaft. It's hard to believe that AM would actually press fit a plastic U-joint end the motor shaft and expect it to last.
I'll give AM a call tomorrow, but for now, has anyone replaced this with a higher quality coupling? Are there newer ones out there that are sturdier, hopefully with metal collars and set screws? Where do I obtain them?
Thanks in advance.
