I’m looking for those with specific Heisler experience. I’ve been looking for one for awhile and finally picked one up. The PO has done a bunch of mods. Some I may keep and some won’t. Personally I prefer to keep them mostly original or easily able to return to original. For example, I happen to like the firebox flicker so I leave it. I know you can’t really see it much except when looking right at it, but I like it. It was removed and there is a piece of plastic covering it. He had an Airwire 900 in it which I won’t se since I am going all to RailPro. He cut out the large scale switch and replaced it with appears to be a charging jack. Which I don’t understand since there is another charging jack in the rear. I thought there might be a second battery in there but when I pull off the front, I don’t see any and can’t really tell where the wire go. It also appears he cut the wire going to the cab lights and I don’t see where they are wired to the Airwire, just left cut. I’m getting the feeling the factory guts are all gone. But I want to verify that.
So first question is after the cab roof/bunker is off, what is the easiest way to get the shell off? I studied the factory drawings and it’s hard to tel, if I have to take it totally apart or not.
I need to chase the cab light wires to figure out where exactly they are supposed to go. The red and black on one side AND the red and yellow on the other side are just cut at the base.
Pics to follow along with more questions.
