Hi, me again - On again to pick the brains of those in the know. (don't know what I'd do without this forum)


One of the engine mounts on a vintage scalextric car I have is partially broken, is there a best way to repair it or is it beyond repair?
I have the piece that has snapped off.

Thanks in advance,

Billy

hi
depends on how fussy you are with your vintage/classic stuff,if it were mine i would superglue the broken piece in place and if the motor was still a bit loose superglue that in as well and run it..

If it's just for show then carefull use of the glue will hold the piece in place ok.

If the engine mount is an integral part of the body, I would try Araldite and then strengthen the joint with some Plastic Welding. But to be honest, I wouldn't take the car to a club race after that. I glued together the motor/axle mount of an Airfix Cooper once, and it disintegrated in the heat of a race with loads of people watching. On the other hand, only Loctite had been used there.
The broken car can be seen near the bottom of this page.
