Electric Motor : Lemans 360 ST - need help - please :-)
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a very old electric speed boat, - you can see it here:
I bought this boat about 11 years ago, and it's been sitting in my shed
for a good 8 years. I decided to pull it out today and fiddle with it.
The motor is shot in it (I think it ceased because of sitting in water, and
seems to be rusted inside )
The motor is a Lemans 360ST.
The motor shaft is not totally round, but is flat so that a coupler can be screwed to it.
I'd like to replace this motor, - does anyone know if this motor still exists ? ... probabally not, so I wonder *how* I can get a replacement,
how does one find out if another motor will fit in the same area ... ( ie, not too large, and not too small in diameter )
can I use another motor instead ? ... I'm just looking for any motor that would fit into the the same clamp that inside the boat ( it would need to be the same diameter ) ( perhaps all motors are the same diamater that are in use on boats ?? )
Anyway if anyone could help me out I would really appreciate that.

I bought a Kyosho LeMans 480 from a club member. He had it on a glider and said was a good motor. I've tested it, the bearings and brushes are good and it works well.
Dimensions of the motor body are (not including shaft):
Main motor body length (not including brushes): 40.2 mm (1.58 in)
Main motor body overall length from outside of bearing housings (including bearings): 56mm (2.2 in)
Main motor body diameter: 35.5 mm (1.4 in)
Motor Shaft Diameter: 3.15 mm(.125 or 1/8 in)
I have no use for this motor since I went brushless. If you want it, make what you consider is a fair offer (I have no idea of the price) and I'll send it to you plus shipping.
You do not have your location on the left of your posts, so I don't know if your close enough to meet. I'm from Kitchener, Ont.
Please PM or Email me if your interested.
