Low Gear

Got the tracks refit with steel pins. And, put the 1000:1 gear motors on it.

I think is is just a bit slow now, not much but a bit, especially in reverse?

I already took teeth off of one gear...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

SP,

You do realize I changed horses mid-stream? My current dozer is not the first one in this thread. I started out on a 1:50 and sort of gave up on that due to no room to hide the RX, battery,...

Roller chain with tabs for track pads?

What/where should I look for roller chain with mounting tabs for building tracks if it comes to that?

If I understand and measured correctly, the original tracks measure 3/8" pin to pin. And 1/8"...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

I'm not totally sure about the time but I estimate 4 or 5 hours. The nubs cast on the inner part poked into the hole of the outer tread in front of it. They were never that tight to start with.

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

Started working on the track upgrade yesterday. I'm drilling out the cast pins and thru both part. Then 1/16" piano wire goes in place. The two pictures show the slop due to wear of the pins cast...

1:16 Oliver Dozer Refit

Making a new aft chassis for the dozer. I already had the larger spur and smaller pinion sets so since Tom thought I was too fast (he always seems to be right about this stuff!) I decided to do a...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

John,

The batteries actually fit pretty easily. In the last couple videos I have been using a two 850 two cell lipo packs. They fit side by side under the hood, and I plug them in and bunch up...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

Tom,

I agree on both counts. I plan to run this way for a few hours and try to tune them down and see if it still pushes good. I get mush better and more realistic look when I get up close and...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

Thanks John,

I haven't had enough run time without a gearbox failure to tell how the beveled sprockets are working. I don't see how it won't help some? They way I figure it, there is less surface...

My trouble is the little tiny gear motors...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

Cool, that is what I was thinking.

I'm still trying different motor and battery combinations. With the speed controllers I can easily fit two 500 - 3 cell lips under the hood. I hope the ESC's...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

Thanks John. I was going to edit the post and ask for other ideas.

I like the thru hole idea, make sense. I'll have to look at them to see.how that might go.

I have some low density foam that...

Here is a picture of one of the drive cog wheels on the dozer. Did you simply bevel the inside surface, starting at the cup and making it pointed toward the points. Sort of trying to get...

Re: He is at it again! 1:50 Dozer Conversion

I think that is what I ordered! Oh, on a side note, do you have a build thread on one of your tonka trucks? I have a semi truck tractor that I want to convert. How did you do the...

I ordered three more sets of motors. They make three different versions of the motor in that size. I think there is going to be at least one that should work. What I have now is almost...
