2950Re: [z_scale] WARNING: Duratrax Power Shot Dissolves Marklin Motors
- Feb 1, 2001Dear Bill,
did you lubricate the motor after this treatment and, if so, what lubricator
you did use?
As you may have read in the 'Z Club 92' Club Revue 4/2000, my little F7 machines
run during a 4 day exhibition in Cologne on my layout without problems for more
than 35 hrs a distance of about 13 miles! Only then, one loco of the double
traction set refused to run further. I used as lubricator 'Ballistol'.
