Thanks. I'll try and remember that when I get back to them but, knowing me I'll forget and they'll go backwards on the first test run.

When I get my new workbench together, I plan on making a video that covers how I refit the motors in the MTB SWs.

Please do.

Any insight in how to take the SW1200 apart would help us. And by taking it apart I mean doing so in a controlled way so it can be put together again. I am specifically interested in how to remove the trucks/towers and how to remove the motor from chassis.

Looking forward to your video.

With a half dozen refits of the MTB SW1200 under my belt, I am quite confident in my skills and abilities in producing a video, aside from my speaking ability, as I am not fully confident of my speech abilities due to some difficulties that I have resulting from the concussions that I suffered in the US Navy. I have to get back down to Georgia to get the rest of my TT scale stuff, which has the bulk of my MTB parts and my tools as well.
