LGB22232 conversion
 
I would like to install a revoloution receiver and Battery in the tender of this engine but don't really know how to start I have taken the tender apart and located the two wires that goes from the eng. to the tender, so what do I do next as you can see I am not up on this conversion stuff. Thanks

You need to make sure all pick ups are isolated so your battery doesn't energize the track. Track power probably has pick ups on the loco too.
I don't know lgb, my info is generic.
I'd look online for a wiring schematic to see what I'm up against

Just unplug the cable going to the motor block. Outer wires are motor, inner wires are track power. Remove the inner wires and you are insulated!!

Thanks Dan I take it that if I hook the two outer wires to the Motor connections on my revolution rec I would be go to go as far as power is concerned

Yes, but you would not have the lights and smoke activated. And these are regular 5 volt bulbs/smoke unit that will exceed the revo function key current ratings. Change the front/rear lights to leds for longer battery life and disconnect the cab light.

Note that LGB runs smoke and lights at over 6 volts and there is a high start current until the elements heat up. I have seen the smoke units at over 200ma on start up but can drop down to less than 120ma when hot.

I've actually done two conversions, but not proud enough of the wiring harnesses to ever post them on this site (Hahahaha), but wondering if Dan, John, Greg or others would have a good tutorial reference for folks wanting to convert an engine from track power to battery power. I have scrubbed You Tube and still not finding much that really highlights it in steps (take the chassis apart, label all existing wiring, select type of sound/receiver/battery discussion, and then actually shows a step-by-step installation...even if it has to be edited). Seems that it would be very helpful to have one and then a link so anyone wanting this information didn't have to start a new thread on "how to". Maybe it exists and I just can't find it. Thanks, Ed

Hi Ed.
Did you mean something like this:

Yes, Tony, this is very good. But I was also hoping for something like Dennis did some years ago in building concrete mountains and using latex forms that he got from Oregon. Something that might be on you tube that would actually show the disassembly, wiring, placement of the bits and pieces and then the final assembly and working of the converted engine. This eight page information is very good, thanks for posting.
