Could be Mike..Thanks Phil
My understanding is that the linkages are only included in
#11115 G-Scale Remote Coupler (Body Mount Coupler Kit)
not the Kadee 906.
Same problem, I would guess Greg..what about the all in one unit, the 11120?
Greg,Was going to ask, the first kit mentioned is for putting the servo inside a car... would think not enough room for a loco install.
Turns out if you look carefully, all you need is a small piece of chain on the knuckle, even easier than fitting a crank to the "glad hand".
Sorry Phil but no Oops is needed!Oops!
Your link is for the 11220 and Greg is suggesting the 11120.
Many Thanks DanI use a standard servo, jewerly chain and drill a hole in the side of a standard Kadee coupler and make it work. I have over 10 of these mounted on engines and figure my cost per loco (I do both ends) is under $20 US. Also I use the Zimo decoders on my DCC system and program the engines for a 'waltz). This is a single key operation that makes the engine reverse/open knuckle /then move forward with the coupler still open. Now I can push the cars backwards without coupling. I then move away from the cars and turn off my uncoupling feature and the knuckle closes.
