I am currently building up the MDC HOn3 2-8-0 (outside frame)but have run into a few problems. First I'm building it out a a large collection of parts that I got from a fellow modeler but I have no drivetrain assembly instructions. I'm trying to figure out which side the insulated driver wheels go on. I've also trying to install the NWSL re-gear kit but I can't figure out how to remove the old worm gear off the motor, does anyone have any ideas?
Any help in greatly appriciated.

I may not be fast, but I'm slow

Hi Glen,

as the loco frame is the positive and the tender is the negative pole the insulated loco wheels are coming on the left and the insulated tender wheels on the right side. I also placed a strip of self adhesive plastic foil onto the left side of the loco frame to get a proper insulation - before I always had short circuits.
Regarding the worm - no idea, I have a newer kit which runs quite smooth, so there was no need for me to re motor the loco.

Greetings, Volker
