I got lucky and got a gang car at an antique shop. An older version with drop down bumpers.

A little cleaning and it ran like a champ. TJ, now I have a working model so I can check out the parts you gave me.

Two screws removes get the armature our. and two special screws hold the field in place and hold the screws.









I had to clean the grease out with qtips, a small screwdiver and a dental pick

Nice find, how much did you have to give for it?

The pickup looks like it wasn't used much, or has it been replaced?

T-Man,

Fabulous! I hope the parts can help in some way.

From what I recall, there were two or three version of the gang car, with subtle mechanical differences. Check out Greenberg service manual.

Looks like you got lucky with yours ... most things look to be in pretty good shape.

Cheers,

TJ

The gears look like they are in great shape. Usually you find the worm gear on the axle worn and lots of side to side play on the axle. It helps even with a worn worm gear to shim either side of the gear to keep it centered. Also check the reversing contacts for pitting and try to clean them up.
