MTH PCC steet with broken protosounds

Still trying to get this dead street car running.  New circuit board is a little pricy so:

1- Where can I get an electronic forward/reverse board with instructions.

2- Is it a screw in procedure using the existing screws and wiring.IMG_2291

3- Will it supply power to the lights.

                                                                                                Thanks, Bill Makel

Protosounds is the name given to what we now call PS1.  Buy a Dallee # 400 electric reverse unit.   Have you had an MTH tech check out your boards?  Stay clear of the one direction operation as you can put more voltage into the motor than it was designed for.   I will also ask the question of what if wrong with it?

 

An MTH item number would be helpful when you are looking for answers.   You ask questions and give people no info to help you.

Always very good advice! Over the years, MTH has made a good many PCCs--some PS, some PS2, and some PS3. Each car has a separate product number, which can be found in the product locator section of the MTH website. In this example, just key in "PCC" (without the quotes) and the full list should come up. In this case there are 61 PCCs.

All MTH boxes have the product number. No box available? Well, in that case just scan down the online list until you see the photo of the car you have.

Thank you Allan.
