I have a HP Products TT scale 0-6-0 that I am trying to rebuild. The frame, boiler, and running gear are intact and in good shape, the engine is lacking it's motor, worm gear, and cab.
The motor is a standard DC-60 with the commutator between the armature and permanent magnet, vice the other style of DC-60, with the commutator between the armature and output shaft. I have a Varney F-3 that I am planning on upgrading to have a pair of can motors vice a single DC-60, so getting a motor is not an issue.
The cab is easily replaced via resin casting of another HP Products steamer cab.
The problem that I have is trying to find where I could get my hands on a worm gear suitable for the task.
The local hobby shop does not like doing custom orders anymore, so I have a feeling I will have to use an online shop to get the part I need.
Does anyone have an idea as to where I could get said worm gear?
Here are some photos of the engine in question:
