Class 08 Motak retainer shield

Postby dg40014 » 24 Feb 2018 11:24

Asking for help please, our trusty 08 has been dropping Motak everywhere, we have noticed there are some of the shields/retainers missing from the final drive casing. These are in four quarters around the idler shaft with three bolt holes in each. There is also a groove for a rubber seal towards the shaft.

Does anyone have spares, or a contact from whom we could get some to allow us to reinstate these items please?

Please email me if you can help. Many thanks.

Problem solved, we made our own lower retainers from steel and then fabricated the upper shield/retainers from plywood! As it is not a dynamic part, just a retainer for very thick grease, why not? We did this on advice from rail professionals by the way..... It seems to work fine.
