Does anybody have a Spectrum DCC ready 4-8-2 wiring diagram? I seem to be missing a red wire from the
PCB to the truck.  Thanks.

Jim,

Wiring diagrams don't exist for any model locos. Never seen one anyway.

On the PCB, you should see some sort of tab marked "PU+" or "PU-". It's been a while, so I can't be positive.

On the Mountains, the truck pick up wires are usually attached to the truck's post screw, by a small 'eye' connector.  The current is passed from the wheel brushes, to the screw, to the "red" or "black" wire, finally to the PCB.

On the Mountain tender trucks:  on truck picks up current from the right (+); the other truck picks up from the left (-).

Wish I could be more helpful.

Regards,

Jonathan

To post pics you need to upload them to a hosting site like FLickr, PhotoBucket, or similar. Then put the link to the pic between [i m g] [/i m g] tags here.

That Attach: button under "Additional Options" is a relic of another time, and should have been removed long ago. There are general instructions for posting pics in the General Questions FAQ towards the bottom of the main forum page.

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