The two outside throttles on my ZW C transformer were loose ,the gears were not meshing and the throttles / cab 1 would not bringing the voltage up to 18 volts.
I followed Jim Barrett’s instructional video procedures on how to correct this problem by tightening the nut on each outside throttle. The voltage on both throttles still remains below 18 volts. I tried calibrating the throttles as shown in the video. The voltage remained below 18 volts. See attached picture. Using a meter the voltage on each track reads the same as the corresponding voltage shown on the ZW C meters.
The low voltage affects the smoke unit out put on my engines. When running on our club layout using an MTH Z 4000 Transformer my engine’s smoke units perform flawlessly.
What do I need to do to get my ZW C voltage back up to 18 volts.?
