New Jersey motor installation part III

Tamiya BB 62 New JerseyPosted by xilsoe Jan 25, 2011 20:19:29
I consider motor installation complete, as I stated in my previous post. I have sealed the outer shaft exits and mounted brass tubes in the seals to allow me to lubricate the shafts. One important thing to keep in mind if doing this is to keep the top of the lubrication tubes above the water line to keep water out. The seals can be seen in the pictures below. I didn't lubricate the shafts yet though.

Instead I progressed on rudder installation. As it can be seen in the pictures I have connected the rudders. The next thing will be to reinforce the rudder mount and then on to mounting the rudder servo.

I prefer mounting the servo laying down. I believe it makes the movements more symmetrical and lowers the centre of gravity.

Here are some pictures:

For the first time the hull should be capable of keeping afloat today smiley
