I'm  upgrading a conventional Lionel R-11 (#6-28553) to 3rdRail Cruise Commander and want to lube the internal gearing on it .  I get it down to the "bolster" but no further.

Also, regarding the original electronics in the engine, what does the AC regulator board do? I am planning to take it out as the 3rdRail instructions say put no caps in the power circuit

Rick, sorry, but I don't see how the pick-up rollers are removed, unless it's by removing the other 4 tiny screws on the sides, 2 of which are hidden by the drivers.

Incidentally, one of the ground screws attached to a ground lead is missing.  Have any idea what size? I don't have anything that fits.

Thanks again.
