Not that this thread will be a "How to re-build a steam locomotive" thread; but, I will from time to time update my progress. As of late I have mounted the new gear, re-quartered the driver set that I needed to put NWSL's new gear on and mounted the new motor. My confidence in NWSL's products is so high that I will go ahead and put the LED head and back-up lights in and install my Digitrax Decoder in the loco, before ever having run the locomotive with the new motor. Using the pliable rubber material NWSL sent with the re-motor kit and then attaching the motor with the Permatex sealant NWSL recommended, was an easy job and went very well! Photos to follow.
