    Default reinstalling bachmann doodlebug front truck

    So long story short does anyone know how to put the front powered truck back in?

    Problem I'm having is the little swivel knuckle u-joint thing on the truck has a square hole that of course mates with the square shaft off the motor. But how do you line them up?

    I'm thinking the decoder has to be unscrewed from the frame?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yeah, you have to get that decoder board out of the way. Too hard to finagle the driveshaft otherwise.
