Richard and MacG

Thanks for the info.... :thumbup: We'll try these methods out. Usually, I remove the trucks to give me a little more room to work with, I never thought the entire piece would come out as an assembly!!

On the tank cars the coupler box pushes out. MT 1023 fits in the coupler holder bracket. The box fits loosely so you need a shortened 00-90 screw to hold it in place. The coupler is a bit high.

On the hopper cars the coupler box also pushes out. It is held in place by a pair of nubs on the top of the coupler so it is a bit harder to remove. On the bottom of the bracket there is a protrusion that needs to be removed before a MT 1015/1016 will fit. With the protrusion filed off, the MT coupler box will be a tight jam fit.
The 1015 will give you close coupling. The 1016 will give you more separation between the cars.
Either coupler will be at the right height.

Another coupler day. Changed all the couplers on my Zeuke cars.
The tank cars got 1023s with a screw holding them in.
The hopper cars got 1015 couplers. They are a tight jam fit.
All of the hopper cars got a load of small lead shot glued into to each of the six hoppers. I used canopy glue. It should be dry in a day or two.
