Re: Problem with DCC loco running erratically

All up and running again, nice and smooth. The supplier gave me a replacement decoder no questions asked. I fitted the speaker into the fuel tank this time but with no detectable difference to the sound. But it's acceptable. I also fitted Kadee 705s instead of the previous MTLs. Very nice, first tim...

Re: Couplers used on Zeuke freight cars and locos

Yes, I have no problem buying MTLs, and they work as replacements, I was just wondering if there was a direct replacement. Anyway it's all fixed now.

Couplers used on Zeuke freight cars and locos

Yesterday I dropped one of my Zeuke hoppers and broke one of the couplers. I managed to fit a spare MTL 1016 in its place, but I had to enlarge the containing hole slightly with a file to get it to fit. Which begs the question - which couplers are installed on the original? I'm assuming they are MTL...

Re: Problem with DCC loco running erratically

The motor works fine on DC. But the decoder shows the same problems when hooked up to another motor. So back to the supplier.
Dismantling the innards has given me another 'opportunity' - I'll try and fit the speaker into the fuel tank rather than inside the body shell for better sound.

Re: Problem with DCC loco running erratically

No I don't, but my next step is to unsolder the thing and test with a different motor, also test this motor on DC.

Problem with DCC loco running erratically

I'm having trouble with the GP9 I motorised and installed a Zimo MX648 sound decoder into. After working fine for several months it's started to behave erratically. First the loco started moving jerkily for a while, but now it won't move at all in one direction, and in the other direction it races o...

Re: Back on Board!!!

Sorry to add to the woes but I am having problems staying logged in too, even though I'm on the https site and check the box that says remember me. After a day or so I get kicked out.
