2  Discussion Boards / Large / Large scale 3 truck shay rear Female universal drive shaft on: August 28, 2014, 08:10:14 AM
Hey Guys,
 Not sure if anyone else has had this problem or not. But I have a modular railroad and I take my 3 truck shay in and out of the box a lot. Well the  rear  Female universal drive shaft when disconnected tend to fall lower than the wheels on the truck. The last time i put it in the box It must have hit first breaking the one of the ears off of the shaft.
 I have checked and there is no replacement part. So I took the metal drive shaft out and molded the end of it. I then cast one in resin. I took the one that was broken and cut off the end that was broken. I Then  drilled out the end of the female shaft with a 5/32 drill. I put the new cast piece in and it was a snug fit. I then use about a drop of thin CA. I painted it black. I re-installed the  rear  Female universal drive shaft into the Shay. I ran the shay for 5 hours at the last show and it runs great.
 If anyone else needs the one contact me. I can make more...

Well i have pictures but it won't allow me to upload them

Why if you still have the Climax in the 2012 catalog. That you don't carry any parts for the climax. One of my universal joints has a small part broken and need a replacement...It is one of the plastic parts in the universal joint that is connected to the front truck...Is there anyone making after market parts??

Thanks Ty
