Looking for 402 motor

Brian,

There are 2 different motors used on the 402. The oldest up to 1923 used a large gear that was close to the wheels flange. It is mounted to the hub by way of 'peening' the gear to the hub. The later unit has the typical 2 hole gear alignment pins on the wheel and uses the smaller gear. You must use 2 motors that are the same.  Harry

Lionel 402 had super motors in them, large gear and small gear.  You cannot mix them due to gear ratios.  408s had both the super motors and also the Bild-a-loco motor.  These can be mixed with the small gear super motors.

The large gear motor gears are almost the the diameter of the flange and pressed very close to the back of the wheel.  The small gear are no larger than the spoked part of the wheel and have an 1/8th inch gap between it and the wheel back.   Post a pic... we can ID for you... also the large gear motors have a single large reduction gear, the small gear motor have 2 small ones.

Didn't see you at aggta swap meet.

I was there until about 10:30, I had to leave early to finish setting up for Christmas in the Park at Poway. I'll bring the motor by.

If you can't buy it... restore it. If you can't restore it... make it. If you can't make it...dangit...
