Class 108 bogie removal- advice needed
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:52:14 AM »
My Farish class 108 DCC ready (chip fitted) has the motor bogie jammed. The motor runs but wheels jammed. (Split gears?) Removed body but removal of bogie proving difficult. Should it just pull off as efforts so far have failed to move it. Worried about putting too much pressure as may damage it.
Any advice will be much appreciated.

If the bogie is jammed, you may have a split gear in there - this is not unknown on the new 101s, 108s and 150s. BR lines do now fortunately stock spare gears, so it's reasonably easy to fix.

Cheers,
Alan

Just an update.
Was’nt split gear. Excessive play in gearbox/driveshaft caused bogie to jam. New gearbox and driveshaft from BR Lines and all now running well.
Thanks to everyone for help and suggestions.
