I have never replaced one. I have a 283 that the front tender truck fell off. I think
I will just buy the tool. "whack it with a hammer". need to buy a few tools. A wheel
puller would be one. And the tools to repair link couplers.

I think flyernut has the "whack it with a hammer" to do tender trucks.

That's the one I have!! Perfect tool for the tenders and other cars. I also have the link coupler installation tool, wheel puller, quartering jigs, and a axle installer and as most of you, a good friend of mine built many of the tools. The very small rivet on the coupler and yoke assembly, (draw-bar), requires a roll pin punch as the rivet tool is too large.

I will have to buy my tools. I do not have any friends around here that have the ability
to build anything out of metal. And that includes me. At least I know they will work. I
have bought a set of roll pin punches. $10 on ebay.

The right tools make all the difference. Tools do not fit younger son's hands so I have to
fix his car and things around the house. He needed a Hot/Cold cartridge replaced on a
Moen faucet. I could not get it out. Bought a remover tool for 25.00 and had it out in
under 30 seconds.
