ZW whistle reverse assembly
Posted by wkmanley on Friday, June 29, 2012 9:11 PM

I checked the olsen diagrams but they do not have a detail of the assembly that covers the axels on the right side of the transformer.  Mine is apart and I want to be sure to assemble the various  parts correctly.

ANyone have a diagram?

Also, there must be a procedure to assemble the inner voltage ring (which is the part I am replacing) and the throttle handle.  SInce it is spring loaded I thought I would assemble it placing the holding pin in first and then the inner ring and outer throttle isnulators and contacts and washers in the correct order, olsen has a diagram for that. Then place  it in the transformer and assemble the whistle reverse on top of it.

The right and left side assemblies are essentially identical, albeit mirror images of each other. If you have not disassembled the left side, use it as a guide to reassemble the right side, using the the service manual images as a reference. As I recall, it takes patience, and strong, nimble fingers to get everything together and get that last retaining pin in place.
