Want To Buy. Headlight motor part. Urgent
« on: November 11, 2016, 11:00:07 AM »
I urgently need parts for left and right Generation 2 motors.  I need the shaft with the metal tri-pot section.  Amazingly, when operating the headlights up and down to gain access to the mechanism mounting nuts, the second motor broke. 

My tri-pot piece spins freely on the through shaft that the plastic gear slides onto.  This is what it looks like.

Love my Fieros, S-curves and speed.
It's what driving was meant to be.

I'll look to see what I've got, tonight.
In the mean time, if you clean/degrease it well, a bit of 5 minute epoxy will probably fix it.

The tri-pot spins on the shaft.  I think it may have been knurled with an interference fit.  The piece has slid on the length of the shaft and there is a precise distance for end spacing judging by the different number of shims on the 2 motors.  I don't know how far to set it from the end.

I got one.  I don't know if I need a second one, though until I put the assemblies back into the car and give them a try.  This is the 87-88 motor.
