Dapol Class 52 Western service sheet
« on: April 08, 2020, 09:41:21 PM »
Good evening

I have searched but failed to find a copy of the service sheet or instructions for my Class 52 Western Sultan (2D-003-003).  I should be grateful for a pointer in the right direction or, perhaps, someone will scan a copy for me.  :thankyousign:

Sorry don't have one for a Western but I think you'll find it's pretty much the same for all Dapol diesels with regards to oiling and DCC chip fitting, so just get one from the Dapol website.

I have a couple of Dapol Westerns and if there's something specific you need to know just let me know.

I don't have a scanner but could take a pic of any relevant part of the sheet and mail it to you.

Thank you for responding again.

I got my Western secondhand and wanted to check whether the service sheet gave any specific guidance.  I want to fit a DCC chip but when I took the body off the chassis for a preliminary look I saw that there are wires from the chassis to the directional lighting in the body.  I haven't come across anything similar before.  Unless the wire connectors unclip it seems that the body will always be attached to the chassis by the wires.  If the service sheet contains anything that might help I should be very grateful for a pic.

Thank you.

You can leave the body attached to the wires and still easily fit a DCC chip. If you PM your email address I can send you a pdf of the service sheet
