A fellow enthusiast….. I have an early model Austrak RT45 with MT500 motors which I have put new seals in but still have a problem with one motor which I have narrowed down to valve body (I think).
I am wanting to find somebody who can help me with parts/knowledge to fix.
I also have a later model chassy & some parts, not enough to rebuild but could be helpful to others.
Hope to hear from somebody!!!
Austraks huh? Don’t you love them?
I’ve got an early chain drive RT45 with the 40hp air cooled Lombardini in it.
She still works (just)
It has a T stick instead of the servos
One of the drive motors is leaking and its drive pump also leaks.
I’ve got a few spare parts plus loads of Lombardini engine bits, enough for 3 engines.
I’m interested in your spare chassis plus whatever parts you might have.
Have you checked out Surplus Center in the US?
Feel free to get in touch.
