Lima 00 DC/DCC Class 08/09/31/37/40/47/52/59/60/66/92/Steam Quiet Motor Kit

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom ends 2019-02-13 12:49:59


This kit* consists of:

  • New quiet can motor
  • New nylon gear trimmed and adjusted to drop right in to the Lima pancake gearing
  • Spacer tube to align motor accurately while it is glued in place. (Maximum of ONE spacer supplied per parcel/order - you only need one for all your installs.)
  • Heat-shrink tubing to protect your wiring connection 

You will also need and be familiar with using a:
  • Screwdriver
  • Soldering iron
  • High-temperature hot-glue gun (160 degree glue sticks recommended)

What locos will this kit* fit?

  • Especially useful for the Lima 08, 09, 31, 37, 40, 47, 52, 57, 59, 60, 66, 92 & the steam locos.
  • Although it also fits all the other Lima pancake motors, I recommend for all the others you fit the hardier, and far more common (and thus cheaper) 12mm motor. See my other kits for this motor.


  • Lima class 20 and 67
  • Locos with additional non-factory ballast weight added**
  • 24hr operation**
** this motor is a more sensitive device than the bullet-proof 12mm version. While I have tested this 10mm motor running round in a Lima class 47 pulling 6 coaches at a scale 100mph for 5 hours with absolutely no ill effects, I cannot recommend it for a shop-window-style marathon running or model-rail haulage competitions!


  • Basic instructions will be included in the parcel (PDF available on request), and unlimited email support will be available.

Recommended for DCC operation (DC with optional diodes)

  • Where the decoder's CV5 can be adjusted to match the low-voltage requirement of the motor. (So NOT the Hornby R8249)
  • Generally, adjust the value of CV5 so it is around 30% of it's default/max value. Eg. ESU/Bachmann maximum is 64 and good values for this motor are in the range of 18-24, which will still give you a max speed in excess of scale top speed.

Here's one of the over hundred locos I have converted with this type of motor:


*Other kits are available from other sources that are a drop in, screwdriver-only replacement, this is a lower-cost DIY version for the more confident modder!
