I have 2 360/364 sets and they run great. The closed pilots look better I.M.O. than the open pilots with couplers.I also have an ABA and 3 AA sets along with a 370,466,372, and a 21234. All run fine. My only poor runner is a 477 that needs to be re-bushed. I thought it wasn't as bad when I bought it, but it won't run at all. Some day I'll get a different chassis vs. having this one rebuilt. Here's a pretty good explanation with a video about the early and later engine truck designs. It would be interesting Tom to know what the date stamp might tell about your 405 with Pullmor. http://www.precisionflyerrepairs.com...el-motors.html

Interestingly the Gilbert Factory Service Manual acknowledges 405's with PullMor wheels. It lists both part numbers on the parts list with the exploded diagram. I never took the shell off either of the 405's. Both are in their OB's and one is in a SB as well. I never looked for date stamps on the boxes, some have them and some do not. When I next get them out I will look.
