Re: Taking a Athearn Genesis pacific apart - Universals


While we're on the topic, how does the valve gear come apart on the Genesis Mikados? Most guides seem to stop with removing the boiler. In particular, how does one take the eccentric crank off from the main crank pin? I have taken my engines apart to this point, but for some reason this disassembly does not appear obvious to me. Is it a threaded crankpin or some sort of push on friction fit?
