    I'm currently rebuilding an MDC shay I got off another modeler as a basket case. I've managed to assemble the main drive except for mounting the motor.there I've run into a few problems for hardware sizes ect. I'd like to locate a set of instructions for the engine to figure that and a few other items out such as the side gears and driveshafts conected to them. Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks ray, I've already got that but the shay I have is a newer design. the motor is an open frame but scewed armature and it's mounted using a u-shaped mount. I'm trying to figure what screws are used to secure the motor to the mount.
