Noisy Lifelike GP20

Recommended Posts

My LL GP20 is an excellent runner, bar a very loud screeching noise it makes. Having spend an afternoon taking it to pieces, swapping the bogies around and fighting the little flexible strip that holds the coupling in, the noise hasn’t stopped. It doesn’t do it in reverse, though not forwards but not at high speeds. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Sounds like a dry motor bearing.  Tiny, tiny drop of oil on each end.

That was my first thought, but once you get the body off and take out the screws the only thing holding the spilt frame together were the two light chips and one didn’t want to come out. I’ll try again later and be a bit more brave.
