    No.........I checked my posts, New Posts, For Sale (in case it was moved there), every section I visited.
    I'm stumped. Where did I put it?
    (Maybe the question should be, WHY did I put it there.)
    I guess this is a case of my mods getting back at me for playing tricks on them!

    Edit: and yes! I hated admitting defeat.

    Hi! Kinda odd for me, talking with a mod, since I'm Admin on another site.
    Did I get a post removed? I made a long, LONG post in the "I wish I would have......" thread, but it's gone.
    Now thinking about it, maybe I didn't hit the right button. (Done that before)
    If I didn't make the post, sorry for this waste of PM space.
    If I did, and it was removed, I would like to know why, so I don't go wrong on any future posts.

    Some time back you posted a comment on how to
    remove the shell from the Bachmann Doodlebug.
    I just spent all afternoon doing that to resolder
    a wire to the back truck. As you said, It was
    tedius, and even as much putting it back together.
    But I thank you for the instructions it is otherwise
    not at all intuitive.

    Glad to help. If you use Loc-Tite, use the blue, not the red. A little dab will is a common trick to keep drive rod screws in line as well.

    Mister Bill

    You have been coaching me on a sluggish Y6B Mallet.

    I think I have isolated the problem to a screw on the tender truck that unscrews gradually after running a few minutes to the extent that the connection becomes loose. I tighten the screw just so much but not too much (or it does not have enough play), and then it runs good for a while and then starts to sputter again.

    I was thinking about using something like Loctite and let it sit overnight.

    What are your thoughts about that?

    I also might be able to get a better grip if I could put a few strands of fine steel wool in the threads, an old woodworker’s trick.

    Thanks for your time.
