      USA Mighty Moe Disassembly

      Has anyone taken apart a USA mighty moe switcher?

      What does it look like under the hood?

      How easy is it to take off the hood?

      I have not, but normal method is screws in and around the motor block from the underside.


      I would guess the hood is connected to the cab, but look underneath for smaller screws nearer the edge of the frame for the cab


      the owners manual gives no clues:

      I never had mine apart and have since sold it. As Greg suggests, hood and cab probably screwed on from beneath.  I would turn the trucks and look for screws hidden by them. Screws will probably be in recessed posts.
