Doug, searched my 2 Manuals and Google-No Joy!

Here's a great site to match engine with E-Unit. Hope it helps!

According to Olsens Toys ...

100-25 rebuilt E-unit orig, arm up, long plastic wire, $37.10

100-25C rebuilt E-unit orig, arm up, short, $37.10


Often, the only difference between certain Lionel e-units was the length of wire that was soldered to them.

My theory is, if it fits, it works. Where do you find a reference to a 100-25c?
If there is a difference it's in the lever.

Good one TJ

when i searched for a e unit for the 2055, they said it was a 100-25c on ebay. at least that's what i came up with, however i found that the 100-25c was also for the 675, when i searched for a e unit for the 675, they are 100-25 with no c. so i guess maybe they are the same?

Per a manual, it is the most common. It will fit over 15 engines. A different lever is normallly a different type (number). Rebuilding is not too bad it will cost less than half the price. Having an extra around is a good idea.

All e units look like this. With the little lever they are the 100-25. It is in more steam and diesel emgines than any other for postwar. Common meaning many.

The change the drum thread.

To overhaul. you need a drum, a two finger, and a four.You can also get a spreader tool for 3 to four bucks.
