Default E-flight Park 400 on a HZ supercub?

I have an E-flight Park 400 inrunner motor + a CC Phoenix 25A ESC from an old helicopter installation I used to run.

Last night I removed the gear box from my HZ Supercub and offered up the Park 400 to the Gear box mount and it all lined up ok. I thought I was onto a winner and pulled the pinion off of the old motor to find that it was a 2.3mm shaft and my Park 400 is a 2mm shaft

My question is: would this motor even work (i.e. give sufficient power) for the supercub bolted onto the existing gear box and if it will, then where in the UK would I be able to source an appropriately sized pinion?

Anyone any idea what size prop I should be using with that combo too if it is suitable (Maybe an APC 10x7E ?)?

Well way way back when, I did exactly that in the PZ Cub. Got the pinion from Horizon.
Ran the stock prop on it. Honestly after the 4th motor failure I got Horizon to replace the motor with the Hacker E43 I think it was.

I ran that motor for a couple of years, finally gave the whole bird away, and to the best of my knowledge it's still flying.

Maybe it was early problems with the 400, but I couldn't get them to last more then one or two flights in the Cub. And Horizon musta known there was something wrong as they replaced every one of them, and didn't even balk at me asking for the Hacker.

Anyhow, it will be like night and day if you get it hooked up.
