I just got this engine in a very cheap trade out of a flea market box. There is not a mark on the engine, but it has plastic gears, and looks like plastic wheels. I guess the engine has been sitting on its side in the box for several years, because shortly after I set it upright on a level surface, yellow thick smelly oil started slowly dripping out of the bottom. (Smells like old 3 in 1 oil.)
Not really sure what I have here. It has two center rail rollers on the bottom. Is this a DC engine? And, after I remove the shell, how would you recommend that I try to clean up those gears etc. (Is this one of those DC "can" motors I keep hearing about?) I know it is just a 1977 plastic product, but it is still a nice looking engine.)
Thanks for any info.
