This loco runs good with Dither (digital pulse power) setting of CV56=4 and CV57=30. The M1 decoder was hard wired into the circuit board supplied with the loco, it easily fits because of its small size. The trickiest part of the installation is not installing the decoder but getting the shell off and on the chassis. The two yellow capacitors across the motor must be removed.
