I'm trying to replace a worn out motor on a shopping center's 2-6-0, and having a little trouble getting the motor holder bronze contacts in place without bending them all over. Is there a simple trick to this I'm overlooking??

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

Figured it out. I cut a couple of strips of plastic from a package 'window' and slid them between the motor contacts and the motor holer contacts. It kept them from snagging on each other while I got the holder in place, then slid them out once everything was locked down. The "Bumblebee" rides again! Cheesy
