Guys- Have an old RV-6 GEM, which is missing the sync AC drive motor and gearbox. I'd like to convert to DC for mobility, and am looking for a suitable single axis drive. I dont mind hacking it a bit, and I dont really need fancy features. It just needs to be able to turn this 6 inch f/8 newt, and deal with the 1 inch diameter stub-shaft. Any ideas?

Thanks-
allan
