At the risk of reviving a very old thread, I am trying to find a replacement for the original SICH19 motor pod in a Ferrari 312PB. It looks like the closest I am going to get (for something that is still produced) is going to be a SICH62, which is a can bell mount. It looks like the original SICH19 is a .5mm offset, and so is the SICH62, so alignment should be fine, I just need to move the pinion to the other side of the motor. I am assuming that means I can stick with teh original 18mm spur gear which I think I can still get, haven't checked that yet. Is this accurate? I don't know much about these motor pods, besides the research I have been doing to find this replacement. LOTS of good info in this thread!!

Thanks,
A.

Yes, that all you need to do and I'm a fan of the running the 62 pod whenever I can.

Thanks for answering my question, I ended up buying a SICH67 motor pod at my local slot car store, and snipping off the side mounts to make it match the SICH62. I also put in a new 23Krpm motor, as the old one was burned up. This seems to have worked very well.

Default Bell drive sidewinder pods

I can't resist adding to the confusion. Hopefully there are some long memories out there.

A couple of weeks ago I bought three bell drive pods from my old friend Dr Valski. I needed these for motors where I had cut the shafts so they couldn't be used in the new pods.

One of these was marked "CH44 0.5mm" offset. We know that one. 0.5 is molded into it.

Another is the dark grey plastic used on the first offset pods. I have no label or part number so can't identify it. There is no indication on the pod of offset amounts.

The third is labeled "CH25 Sidewinder OFFSET". I can't find any reference to this pod anywhere.

Does anyone have any old paper Slot.it catalogs to identify this?

Yup. Their 2006 Catalogue, Page 34: 'SICH25 Sidewinder motor mount - 18 spur gear OFFSET' is the description.

Of the ten pods on the page, none of the OFFSET pods (24, 22, 25, 30) are specified as to the degree of offsetedness.

Regards to Van next time you see him.

Thought Slot It pods were generally color coded. black was 0 offset, grey .50, brownish .75 and white pods 1.0.

The colour may be key; however, those four pods mentioned are all grey.

And, on Page 32 of the catalogue, it states that 'in the "offset" versions, unique to Slot.it, the rear axle is offset 1 mm upwards, thus lowering the centre of gravity and increasing the magnetic traction ... '

From memory, the lesser degrees of offsetedness came along later.

One note of caution with the new reverse sidewinder pod .... be very careful when changing motors as they're very delicate. I've broken two pods on the bottom on the new endbell side. Fixed with glue, and stiffened things by screwing in the motor, but it would be nice if the design was a little more robust.

The word "hub" is a misnomer.
The word should have been "wheel".

For small or large diameter wheels.

The "hub" is the same size (or very close) on both diameter "wheels"..!
Except for the wheels with no external hubs...

True, with the "new" pod Slot.it had to strike a balance between having a clip in motor mountining that has a tight fit and a screw/ bolted motor mounting.

I.m.o mounting the motor with screws is preferable, and if you do so, shaving a bit of material of the top of the motor mount so you dont have to bend them that much to clip the motor in does help.

with kind regards
Tamar
