Back to work on it this morning, after a little nap.. I've got to sleep off the muscle relaxers.:laugh:Talk about going the extra mile FlyerNut! I see how some of your magic works. Thanks so much for working on this guy and especially for posting the photos!:appl:
That would be correct, but only the center rim.. Now I know someone will chime in and say to make a few staking marks, shrinking the hole a bit, but heck, I just replace it. That way I know the repair is good.The hole is simply way too reamed out, I'll just replace it with a different one.
Thanks for info. Ok, I thought maybe you built up the center hole with something.
So if center hole is reamed out, wheel is ruined and no longer any good for anything.
Maybe display in shop yard. LOL.
It sure looks good Loren! As to the cat hairs, I have no idea! Cats and I do not like each other. They must have been there from the previous owner. PM me what I owe you for everything including the shipping and I will PayPal you! Thanks again my good friend!!!:appl:I won't bore everyone in details about polishing linkages, etc. Here's the finished loco.. Fred is going to have a hard time keeping this one on the rails, it is FAST. I haven't tried it yet on the lay-out but on the bench, it SCREAMS!. I knew I could get a little more out of it.
