    Does anyone have an idea of how to convert one or both of the older LifeLike spring drive linkages to flywheels? IMG_20200130_104328.jpg

    How well does the motor run? I'm wondering if a challenging conversion to flywheels would be worth the effort if the motor is of poor quality.

    The motor runs supprising well, even at creep speed. I had in mind searching for a low cost, low teck variant of the flexible tube used in later models. Maybe the "flywheel" could be some other repurposed object. Just thinking outside the box.

    Motor runs well even at creep speed. Had in mind repurposing something else for the flywheel and using flexible tube for an axel. Just trying to get some out-of-the-box thinking going.
