So, if the key has worked its way half way out, the excess load will start chewing on the shaft? :shock:

Hello Peter! Well, I think that a tank is a tank and must be able to be driven like a tank, also if being 1/6 scale: logging small trees up to 2 m of height, crushing hedges and so on. This may cause some smaller damages, which may be repaired. That's real live of a tank driver (also full scale) :t...

Peter,

Very interested in this mod for my Jadgtiger.

I think I'm not understanding something, how does this actually keep the pin in place?
Hello Don,

The washer keeps the pin (key) in place. W/o the washer, it will start to move outwards.

Regards

Peter

How to avoid driving gear problems....

Problem: When driving in heavy terrain, a lot of pressure (torque) is exerted on the final drive. This leads to movement of the pin (key), which then mushrooms the drive axle. Due to this, the Taper Lock breaks. Happened twice with my King Tiger and once with my Elefant. a1.jpg mushrooming leads to ...

Re: JT in Germany

While working on the drive sprockets and running gear, I remembered some issues I had with some other models... As it might be of general interest, I will post a new thread under "Knowledge Base" as "How to avoid driving gear problems".

Looking good Peter :D

What's the barrel attachment like ? Can it be easily removed for transportation ?

If not, I might have to drill a hole in the back door of the van :shock:

Adrian.
Thanks Adrian,

If I were you, I would start drilling..... :D :D :D
