Troubleshooting Aristo Mikado
I need some help troubleshooting my Aristo Mikado. I think it's a blocked fuel line, but let me lay out what I know. A little backstory: It's been in storage for the last 6-7 years as we moved, and had kids. Kids are now 4.5 (girl) and 2 (boy). and there's finally been some time to lay some track. BTW, the boy loves trains. Absolutely loves them. Warms my heart, lol. All I have is a loop, landscaping and more track to come later.
Anyway, I fired it up today. Everything seemed to check out OK. Distilled water, check. Steam oil, check. Battery in the remote, check. Fuel, check.
It fired up. Yay. Burning sounded a little rough, but I attributed that to years in storage. After a few minutes, a little smoke appeared around the front, but I remember that as normal. But soon the "roughness" appeared to peter out, and with a soft woosh...nothing. dang it, not enough fuel in the tender. I refilled it and attempted to relight, nothing. I can hear the fuel rushing in, and I can hear the igniter clicking away...but I'm guessing theres a blockage between the igniter and the tender. It sounds closer to the igniter.
Can anyone point me towards a good set of instructions on how to disassemble the Mikado (properly!) to try and troubleshoot it? Is this a common problem that's easily fixed by doing "X"?
