Hello, my first post here, and my first Lionel engine (besides my Holiday set that i bought many years ago). Found it very cheap locally, and fixing it up.
But i can't pinpoint when it was made, I don't know if that's even possible. So i am asking if there is anyone here with more info that would help.
It is a MPC 8010, and it appears that someone swapped a postwar 634 shell on it, and added matching decorations to make it look like a MPC 634.
The powered truck is a 8010-127, and as can be seen in the pictures, it is the scout style power pickups. Would that narrow it down to early -70's, or could it be anywhere from 1970 to 1986?
(I added the yellow wire for better motor/chassis grounding).
