19313 series Auxiliary Water Tenders dummy coupler too low

11/01/2019

Hey all.

We have found that the dummy coupler on the front of these are assembled wrong.

The good news is that the parts are all there, but assembled in the wrong order. The washers used for the spacer are under the truck frame instead of on top. The photo is how it was supposed to be assembled and is the fix. You can see in the photo that the washers should be in between the truck frame and the bottom of the coupler.

You just need to take 4 screws found under the trucks off and remove the body. The truck is held on by 1 screw and after the truck is dropped you can re-do the coupler as shown.
