OK, just so we don't get confusedNot admitted defeat just yet printing new Ears, no idea what they are called the bit the slider rods screw too think it might work Last test run a lot less clicking sounds, still just there so another hour or so and its test run number three with new Ears..
The coupling rods connect to each of the three wheels, and the con rods to the pistons.
Now, where the con rod mounts on a longer screw in the centre driver, can you use a sleeve that is wider than the con rod? That will give the con rod some side play.
Some of the R-T-R locos use that principle - in fact they often introduce a bit of slop all over the place, but then they're probably in a position to design it so
Ah, just testing - you have got the coupling rods set at 90 degrees (not 180 degrees) haven't you? Nod for yes
