Pictures always help. Are you talking about the trailing truck? I'm trying to visualize what "curved piece" you're talking about. Is the whole truck and drawbar loose?

The plain 8040-15 will fit. (Just scroll up on the supplement page 3-11 on the supplement))Part is not available from Lionel. You will need to find a parts engine. If you modify the part and cut the wheels off it may fit your part.

Is there a primer on oiling locomotives and tenders?

See Post 1 ... with link to Lionel O/O27 Manuals. There, "How to Care for Trains ..." has basic info on lube, etc.

Many guys here prefer 5W-30 motor oil ... doesn't gum up over time.

Any parts that move, rotate, or slide against one another.

I will use a TINY drop of the 5W-30 oil on my armature face and on my e-unit piston, too. Somewhat sacrilege, but it works OK for me, and keeps things quiet.
