I've been wanting to convert the swing pilots on several of my diesels to fixed pilots and installing Kadee couplers. I've seen photos that others have done but never saw the exact process of how it's done and what is needed.
I'm looking at my Lionel GP30 (6-28840), GP9 (6-34738), SD40 (6-34782) and U33C (6-28235). Also an Atlas GP35 (1131-1).
Before I just tear into it, I would appreciate hearing from those of you that have done these conversions and learn from your experience.
PS I have converted several of my F and E units to fixed pilots using a replacement pilot from P&D and really like the results.
