Hi, I have recently received my first AZL engines, two GP30s. Unfortunately I broke the end coupler on one of them. In the box is a spare truck with no coupler. My idea is to remove the front truck and and place it at the rear. Then mount the extra truck at the front. I hope this is OK. The problem is that I can't find any info on how to remove the trucks on a GP30. I have found it for E8/E9s. Is it the same procedure or can the trucks just be pulled out? Advice please!
Hello! The trucks are super simple to remove and swap out. Use a small flat head screwdriver and gentled pry down from the rear of the truck. It will pop out. With the truck out, push the new truck in place. It will just snap in. Watch the copper contacts on the chassis. These can easily come loose from the chassis on the GP30. They slide into a groove of the chassis, but it is a pain to put them back in place. For this reason, try to keep the shell on when swapping the trucks.
