I found three motor upgrade kits listed under Williams accessories. No mention if one would fit an E-7.
In the real world an E-7 is larger(longer) then the F-7, so I am not sure if the kit for an F-7 will work or not.

Have you posted this at OGR forum? It seems the guys over there give more replies and sooner.

Hi Davidone,

            The Williams EP-5 uses the same power trucks as does your E-7 ( #00243 kit ). Here is a simple and less expensive way to get all the parts you need plus extra parts including a true blast II unit complete.

            Go to the Wholesale Trains web site on line. Currently in there O gauge sale section they have the Pennsylvania EP-5 on sale for # BAC 41905 @ $79.99 or the BAC 41906 @ 81.49.

            You can easily "GUT OUT" these locos for all the parts you need for your E-7 upgrade with spare parts left over.

            If you buy two of the same for $160.00, you could "GUT" the one for the E-7 upgrade and use the parts removed from the E-7 to make a dummy out of the EP-5.

           Buying the loco, at this price, is cheaper than buying the upgrade kit !!!!



            Attention:  Cobrabob...I know you are a Pennsy guy, this may be a good time to add a pony or two to the "stable"

                                  Keep on Chuggin'...671

671,

the only problem that you are going to have with using the guts from the EP-5, is that there will not be screw holes for the ladder mounts.  You could drill and tap, or epoxy them on to the truck.
