I have some Lima Mk1 Guv's Which have plastic wheels and I
would like to replace them with metal sets.

I have tried the Bachmann and Hornby sets of 3 hole disc sets
but they seem too big and do not free wheel when fitted.

I have a new RES GUV from Hornby(ex lima) and they fit perfect,

Is there any shops out there that supply replacement wheels ?

Cheers Baz

***Lima have a different axle length to hornby and bachmann.... Lima axles are shorter.

Markits will supply wheelsets with the lima axle length if you ask...

You need 3'6" disc wheels (14mm) with Lima length axles
