Was adding a decoder to a new in the box 2nd gen Climax.

No movement from front truck, rear truck fine. Power pickup on all wheels front and rear.

Anyone know how to remove the truck, pulled the bottom plate, and there is a small board and then the motor right in the middle of course.

Hi Greg,
Try this...

It's from the Bachmann parts page. You probably already saw this and it may not be the version you're asking about?

hah, I thought all the docs were the 1st gen, but looks like they are all 2nd gen.

So lucky!

Thanks again, Greg

update: loco fixed, the small contacts in the truck did not properly engage the contacts in the swivel plate.... just bending the 4 contacts out so they better contacted fixed it.... maybe it ran at the factory, but this is the first time it has been run since purchase some years ago.
