If you are replacing the existing motors, can you not take the worm of the motor and put it on the new shaft. If the size is different you might be able to shim the shaft with K&S brass tube of suitable size.

You could try ABC who make gearboxes, they may be able to help their email address is [email protected]

hope the above helps

Andy, have you thought about filing the chasis down to allow the new motor to fit, if it is narrow enough. I once replaced an XO4 motor with a flat can that was 13mm wide and just fitted. The chasis required about .75mm taking out if memory serves and I used araldite to fix the motor (not a good idea) but it seemed easy at the time. It worked for a while but the motor ran hot and the glue joint broke never did repair it as I moved back to O.

Though the above might help

regards
