Hello all, I've searched as best I can to find this subject in the forum, but didn't find it. Hopefully someone has some advice on my problem:
I'm converting my newly purchased lionel 21" SF passenger cars to kadee 747 couplers (don't like the kinematics - but lets not go there). I removed one of the lionel couplers and prepared to mount the shim that lionel provides for attaching the 747. However the hole in the passenger car metal floor appears to be not tapped! So the machine screw provided with the shim won't thread in. Has anyone else dealt with this? What is the size/thread count for these screws? Can I use self-tapping sheet metal screws instead as an easy fix? Or do I need to tap the holes (I don't have a tap kit though)...
Thanks in advance!
