Okay, thanks for the link. I was wondering if I was large by a mm.

I have no idea if this would work. It might be easier to swap everything 
unless you were 6 V and wanted to keep the 6 V motor.

Anyone who is doing ANY of this work should consider taking the linkage 
apart, so the posts can be cleaned and relubicated. Those parts can stick 
and make problems.
