I want to add the fender skirts which are included with MTH's Proto 3.0 Aerotrain to the powered front truck of that engine
As shown in Figure A with the engine shell removed, the truck turns out and away from the frame quite far making it easy to add the screw that fastens the front of the fender skirt to the front of the truck.
However, the rear of that truck when turned out and away from the engine frame doesn't give the clearance away from the the frame that's needed to be able to insert and tighten the screw into the hole on the rear of the fender skirt and truck (as shown in figures B and C.)
Is there a way to loosen that truck just enough from the engine frame so it will drop down and away from the frame so the screw can be inserted and tightened without the powered truck becoming totally disconnected from the motor?
I'm afraid if the truck does become disconnected from the engine's frame and motor that I won't be able to easily reattach it.
