HEY GUYS. SPENT THE LAST WEEK OR SO TRYING TO FIND A KNUCKLE COUPLER FOR MY AMERICAN FLYER K325. IT IS THE EARLY VERSION COUPLER BEFORE THEY REDESIGNED IT. I WANT TO KEEP IT ORIGINAL. THE MODERN REPRO (I HAVE A FEW) SLOTTED ONES WILL WORK BUT I'LL ALWAYS KNOW. IVE LOOKED HIGH AND LOW TO NO AVAIL. IT WAS SUGGESTED TO ME TO FIND A EARLY 1952 CAR THAT HAS EM ON IT. BUT THATS JUST AS HARD. LOOKED FOR THEM TOO. I CANT BELIEVE THAT NO ONE EVEN SHORT RAN A REPRO I CANT BE THE FIRST PERSON TO NEED ONE.  TO BE HONEST I THOUGHT ALL THE KNUCKLE COUPLERS ON FLYER WERE THE SAME.    I'LL SEE IF I CAN POST PART OF A PIC  THAT I STOLE (MY BAD) FROM AN S GAUGE SITE. THIS IS THE ONLY ONE I'VE SEEN. OR COULD FIND.  HOPING SOMEONE WITH MORE EXPERIENCE HAS AN IDEA LOL. EVEN THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO SWAP THE WHOLE TRUCK . BUT THEN THE LOCO LOSES ITS IDENTITY

HELP

Joee, I hope you find the part you need.

As a point of continuing internet education, posting in ALL CAPS is considered "shouting" on the net. Your posts will be better received if you don't post in all caps.

Good luck on your search.

HEY AS A POINT IF YOU GOT NOTHING NICE TO SAY

DON'T SAY NOTHIN AT ALL. IT'LL GET YOU FRUTHER IN LIFE

I don't believe that Mr. Melvin was saying anything "mean" or "insulting" but trying to help with internet etiquette. Given his position, I would say that his kindly worded advice is worth heeding, for everyone's sake.
