16  Discussion Boards / Large / ... Rail Truck .. gears split on: December 17, 2015, 11:00:22 AM
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?

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!

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.

Old age! Angry
I took out the smoke unit from my Large Scale Shay a while ago.
For the life of me I can't remember how to hook it back up.
Can some one gently pull there smoke unit out, and take a quick pic of it's connections.
I know were the wires come from and go , but not were they go on the unit.

The Cylinder Ass. on the Large Scale Shay looks like it's held on with two screws. Embarrassed

I felt sorry for the poor fellow in the signal tower who got pelted by the plow.  Smiley
Regards, Jonathan

Why he's inside with the heat on!!;)
I saw it too! Laughed my butt off! Figured the engineer must have been "best of pals  Angry" with the tower guys Cheesy. Wonder who scrapes the windows clean again? Heat or not, it cant wait for a melt!

It's probably the only time the windows get cleaned!
