source for Pittman motors

can anyone recommend a place to get Pittman motors from? My supply is dwindling down. Its been years since I bought some. I bought a good a quantity from a 2 rail fella a long time ago....or does somebody have some they want to part with? I have been swapping out the pullmors on my scale lionel mohawks and what a difference with Pittmans and ERR stuff!

yes Bob I think you are correct, seems to memory My buddy Paul would call him direct to get Pittmans for his vast 2 rail brass fleet....I remember him ordering dozen at a time....he was a great friend, when he passed he left me quite a few locos...and half a dozen pittmans….thanks for the suggestion...

When you get replacement Pittman motors, by what means do you remove and reinstall the flywheel & gears from the defective motor to the new one?

I have a small two jaw puller for the pressed on ones, most I see these days just use a simple set screw, I'm mostly doing upgrades, so if a cheap can motor has a flywheel im gonna use on a Pittman, well, its game on and the flywheel is coming off by any means possible to save the flywheel without putting a ding in it...even cut the old shaft to get a clean shot at pressing the remaining piece of shaft out on my terms, if you know what I mean...

Can you send info or pictures of the jaw pullers.   Also, how do you get the gears & flywheel on the new motor if there is no set screw involved?  Heat up the flywheel & gear?
