Greetings y'all it has been awhile.
I wanted to ask a question to those that have Sunset Model Locomotives. How do you lucubrate your motor? I recently acquired a Sunset Models Southern Pacific Lines P-8 (4-6-2) from 2006 or 2007. I want to say factory new, but I could have been re-wrapped pretty good. I noticed when I did a bench test at home her motor was a bit loud and noisy compared to other locos I have. And when I was doing a test run at the club layout it seemed like she was binding a little bit at slower speed, kinda Jackrabbit-ish.
Attached is a photo of four screws I removed from the body trying to get inside to lube/grease the motor and video of how loud it is.
Any input to safely remove the shell would be appreciated.
