First clean the tread of locomotive’s wheels with Isopropyl Alcohol. Then place a very small amount of conductive contact lube on the electrical pick-up wheels’ tread and other electrical pick-up rub points.

Use
Heavy oil on the axles and gearbox bearings
Light oil on motor bearings, side rods and any place else parts rub together.

Apply an amount (drop) no larger than the size of the head of a standard straight pin at each lube point. More lubrication is NOT better. Too much lubrication at or around the motor may cause damage to it.

Dear Hunt,

thank u for helping me Smiley
The oil came with instructions but i knew were to put the gear oil but when i read the instrutions for the conductive oil i didn't know were to putt it because there were 4 sets or two or some thing like that so i only have the gear oil on them
They go really fast Cheesy And i put some on my dad's and uncal's trains and they were slow before an the go really really fast.  Cheesy
So thank u Hunt for the help. Wink
