Have you looked into using fishing hooks?
Just find a hook  with an eye that the rod will go thru.
Cut the shank off then glue into hole.

I will post a pic , when I get time to fix this.

The black plastic just spins on the shaft.
I will drill and pass some wire thru the hole and wrap it a couple of times and end it with a small twist.

There is something there .. I  can feel it when I spin it by hand .. It's snug so I'm not going to try to remove it ... Grease and oil are a given so that's why the wire idea.

What I did find is that the beginning of the drive shaft assembly (pic below), is spinning on the shaft of the gear assembly that is located under the black metal strap , were we replaced the long screws with the shorter one as described by Dave.
The Motor and all the gearing up to that point works great.
I'm thinking of trying to drill thru the black plastic then thru the brass shaft on thru and installing a wire as a pin.

Do you have a better fix?

Hello one and all.
I set my rail truck on the track to give it a run ... whining noise .... tried to move .. gave it a push .. I'm thinking split gears.. Angry
Note: the rail truck has been sitting for a while .. could the gear split from age?  Huh?
How do I tell which production I have?
Thanks

Not too bad.
When I did mine it said red wires goes to red and black go to black.
So I open up the truck and I have two black wires Huh?
I had  friend with a meter help.
Worth the trouble!

Mr.Bachmann this should go into the FAQ area. Wink

Chris and all
I looked at the new piece and piece on the engine.
I laid the engine on it's side.
I had to take the cover of the ash pan off. 2 screws.
I then backed out and set aside the two screws you see between the cylinders.
In the ash pan next to the pc board are the plastic mounts of the cylinder with screws
on the ends. Don't touch the screws but..
Turn the mounts until they line up with the slots. now gently wiggle
to remove the  cylinder, notice the small thing that goes or comes
out on the bottom of cab. Pull this out(it sticks into the and of the shaft on cylinder)
Turn or lay the cylinder so you can unsolder the wires.
To install the new cylinder you just reverse  these steps.
Hook up the drive shafts and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps.
