Replacing the boxing glove on Bachmann tenders

I am working on doing a tender for a NS ten wheeler and would like some ideas on replacing Bachmann's coupler on the rear end.  I'm thinking of body mounting Z scale MTs, but it sure does look like there would have to be some decent surgury involved.
Thanks much,

Hi John
   Which Bmann tender are you using? Don't have one in front of me, but if I remember correctly, there is usually a post and a coupler "box".
 Just use Xacto blade, and chisel blade to remove. Take your time, and don't cut yourself! Z905's look great.

I figured it out; there was just enough meat in the right place to do it.
