Reply to "LIONEL 2RAIL REPLACEMENT TRUCKS"

I have been using Intermountain wheel sets in the original Lionel trucks and they seem to work well.  There was a post in I believe O Scale Resources where someone popped out the bearing inserts and installed a small  shim behind the bearing to help center the wheels.  The contributor used a small piece of styrene punched out with a hole punch for the shim.  I believe the shim was .030 inches thick.  I have been assembling the truck without the shim and it seems to work OK.  Wheels are a little loose but so far they haven't come out.  You have to cut off the 3R coupler with a Dremel and a cut off disk.
