I'm going to be doing a strip down cleaning of my childhood PW 2-6-2 steam engine, #675, it's getting power but not running. I can see the armature, it's black. Since the side rods requires a little more effort than the diesel I just did, I want to replace the brushes rather than just clean them, Lionel 226E-92. I noticed TrainZ has two options: Part 226E-92 @$3.00 ea, but I get the part No. referenced even if I can't be sure from the picture, And Part 622-121 which is noted "(226E-92)" and is available - 3/$1.77.
Has anyone used the 622-121 in place of the 226E-92? Should I switch out the springs too, since I'm that far into it?
Are there any suggestions?
(NOTE: I have reached out to TrainZ and am waiting to hear back from their Parts people)
Thanks in advance.
