HO-Scale Stewart VO-660 Phase 2 prior to installation.
To start off this install, you must first remove the front and rear couplers. Do this by lifting off the tabs securing them highlighted in blue above and the couplers will come right out. Then remove the shell by gently squeezing on either side of the top shell section and lifting up.
Shown with the shell off and the original lighting board in place. Remove this board and discard it.
Trim and tin or lengthen the wires as necessary to prepare them for connecting to the new motherboard.
Using the same tabs, secure the AS-MB2-NC to the frame and solder the motor and track leads to it.
Next, insert the wired 25mm X 14mm speaker into the UNIV-SH4-C enclosure and using double sided foam tape,
mount this assembly to the front frame and solder the wire leads to the AS-MB2-NC.
Using hot melt glue, secure the KA4 to the rear of the frame and solder these leads to the AS-MB2-NC.
Solder and insulate wire leads to the front LED and using hot melt glue, secure this to the front light tube.
In the same way, add and insulate wire leads to the rear LED connectors and solder these to the AS-MB2-NC.
In this installation, we utilized the original lights in place and simply added new wire leads to them, insulating the connection with shrink tubing. Solder these
leads to the motherboard as indicated in your wiring instructions.
You can now plug in the WOW121 decoder.
You can close up the locomotive. Be sure to be mindful of wire routing and reassembly of the shell as to not damage
or foul the installation. Your Stewart VO-660 Phase 2 is now WOWSound equipped and ready to roll!
