FVM SD70ACE Issue
« on: August 06, 2016, 11:21:32 PM »

On a newly purchased FVM SD70ACE I am having an issue.  Running DC in FWD or REV between "crawl speed" and "very fast" the
mechanism squeals very loudly.  At ultra slow or  fast speeds it is quiet.

Also how do you get the shell off?  The normal method seems to require too much force....

thanks...

SOLVED...

The "Drop" method works on this loco...

A touch of lube to the motor bearing shaft fixed the noise....

Which drop method was that? A drop of oil, or a drop on the floor?

That is how I remove most of my shells.

 :D :D :D

It was new to me - but figured everyone knew - using the inverted "jewel case" lid to hold one end of the loco and then carefully
dropping pilot onto the edge.  After 1-2 trys the frame just falls out.

As in the video above!!!  :)

I'm not a big fan of this shell-removal method, but that do I know . . .  :)

Me neither - but I tried every thing else on this loco - it is on there REALLY tight.
