Here you will find custom machined replacement steam and gas spindles for all Accucraft locomotives. These are a easy way to tame the twitchy gas valves that typically spring back on settings during operation.

 

Installation of the Steam Spindle - Unscrew the OE spindle from the throttle housing, some require the knob or handle to be removed to clear the cab. Install the old knob onto the new spindle and be sure to slightly lubricate the Orings with a little Petroleum Jelly.  Screw the new spindle in the throttle housing.

 

Installation of the Gas Spindle - Be sure that the gas tank is empty! Unscrew the orignal spindle from the valve body. Take the new valve apart by unscreding the spindle from the adapter.  Using a small amount of Permatex sealant on the adapters outer threads install the adapter into the valve body and snug with a wrench. Lightly lubricate the Orings with Petroleum Jelly and thread the spindle into the new housing. If you are reusing the knob then reinstall the knob on the new spindle.
