Reply to "Need advice re: Lionel Ploar Express set # 6-84328"

I am resurrecting this post which I started last December because of a chuffing problem on my Polar Express LionChief Berkshire engine, set #78-4328.  I delayed looking at this engine until after the holidays but now I have and I am still at a loss as to what is causing the problem.  I have popped the hood on this thing and have looked for the components  that GRJ suggested to check out.  First of all I am not experienced with working on Can motors so I don't what I'm looking for.  Anyway,  I found the motor easily enough and the the flywheel which sits atop of it but I can find no tab or a chuff chopper, whatever that is. I turned the flywheel several revolutions but I observed nothing to tell  me what is going on.  I saw no tabs or anything else moving towards or making contact with the sensors which  I think I see  on the inside of a couple of the drivers(little red bulbs).  If someone could specifically identify where these tabs are as well as the chuff chopper perhaps I could fix this thing but as it is I just don't know what I'm looking for.  Any assistance would be appreciated.
