I have a Bachmann F9 diesel, approximately 25 years old.  I am pretty sure it has never been cleaned or lubricated, so I am trying to do so.  I am having difficulty removing the rear truck and motor assembly from the chassis.  I unscrewed all visible screws but it will not pull out.  I am nervous to fiddle too much for fear of breaking anything.  Any suggestions?

The instructions sheet, which includes how to remove the motor, can be found here:

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

nbks82, what was it about it, that prompted you to look into lubricating this loco?

jbrock27 it just sounds rough when it runs; plus I've neglected it in the past when cleaning/lubing other locomotives.
Len thanks for the link.

Yep.  Len's a terrific resource Smiley

I like to use fishing reel grease (just a little) in the gears and use oil for metal parts that need lubing.  The grease has PFTE in it and is safe for plastics.  WalMart and KMart carry it-grey tube, inexpensive.

Thanks for the recommendation.  I use an Atlas lubricant I purchased from a hobby store some years ago.  So far I'm pleased with it.

Been using Labelle's line of lube products for 40 years; no beefs.
