Sorry for reposting but my computer ate my email. I am trying to seperate the chassis from the shell to replace some broking wiring. 've removed the three screws holding the two together but it appears the chassis front goes into/under the shell. and I can't see the smoke levers to move them out of the way. Help!
This UP "Berk" dismantles the same as the Postwar # 736 - one screw under the pilot truck and two at the rear under the cab. There are no "smoke levers" to move out of the way. The e-unit lever needs to be centered to aid in re-installation of the boiler shell.
If you can post a picture of what you're concerned about, maybe we can be of further help.
Here is the photo
Look 1" back from the front pilot.See the 2 metal tabs around pilot casting holding the smoke lifters (wings) to the frame.
Thanks I totally spaced out the tabs as being involved. I do have it apart and found one of the leads that go to the tender has broken off I don't see where it went. One is attached to the e-unit.
