After not so much running time my 1:20.3 2-6-6-2 had the front truck run in idle. The cause was the motor mount screws were loose in the first place and now they have fallen off.

Being in Europe I don't fancy sending the whole loco in for replacement. In fact, if any of you can give me the specifications of the screws No. 10183 that attach the motor to the gear box I would rather buy them from a hobby shop.

Thanks,

Gion, Chur, Switzerland

Hello Gion,
the srews are all metric. I don't remember the size. But you can just disassemble the other truck and take the same bolts as template to buy new ones.
By the way, just check all (!!!) srews in the drive area ! Loose screws are a common problem with this loco!

Thank you Udo

the info that they are metric is enough. From measurements of the mounting hole I have the diameter, but I was unsure of the type of thread. It's M2.5.
