Picture 9F-1, Pick-up is via the driving wheels of the locomotive,
and the outer wheels of the tender, connection from the locomotive is via
flexible contacts mounted either side of the locating pin.
To remove the tender body, gently pry the sides apart in the centre and it should slide upwards.
Picture 9F-2, Either cut or de-solder the capacitor connected across
the motor terminals, and bend the disconnected lead away from the motor
Disconnect the red and black wires from the motor terminals. Join the 2 red wires together with the red decoder wire, insulating the joint on completion, and then join the black wires together with the black decoder wire, again insulating the joint on completion.
Connect the grey wire to the front motor terminal and the orange to the rear.
Picture 9F-3, Use double sided tape to stick the decoder to the
front ballast weight. I cut the unused wires right back to the connector as
the is little room to spare for excess wires. Replace tender body.
