Has anyone asked Eric to repair a mirror gear motor in a MZ / ZX body?

Hi folks,

Has anyone asked our superstar repairman Eric if he can / is willing to swap out a mirror motor in a ZX body for one with a metal gear? I thought I saw a thread a while ago where someone had Eric do this, but now I can't find it. Anyone?

Thanks!

Sure. Eric performed this exact service on my MZ-3.

Thanks Chris! Did you supply the motor, or did Eric have one on hand?

Loving the K2DMD by the way.

I would just email Eric directly as he is quite accessible. This way you will get current info as I am sure parts may or may not be available.

Eric supplied the part. He installed the upgraded replacement part, the motor with metal gear.

Thanks for the info Chris. Nice to know that whenever I send my next box of stuff for a CLA I can ask Eric to do this as well.
