Reply to "oil burner restoration big boy owners....have a question about the drawbar"

@kj356 posted:

Is it correct that the top of the spring and screw make an electrical ground connection from the engine to the tender so they must be touching drawbar and top of body?

Also I am having a binding problem occasionally on wide radius curves anyone else have an issue or solution? Can not figure where it is binding?

Binding can occurs if the wires to the loco side connector don’t have enough free play. Move the drawbar side to side and make sure it can swing fill width without getting tight. You may just have to try a slight tug on the connector or maybe pull the shell to provide more slack.

The spring on top of the drawbar makes that chassis to chassis connection. I believe power ground is one wire in the tether.
