Guys I am trying to help a fellow.The keystone Shay if you have one.To the right of the crankcase housing just outside the frame is a fitting, how is that removed.I am thinking is there a pin holding it on. I don't have a picture. The crankcase is an assembly, then you have part of the frame that ecloses it so the piece to the right on the outside of the crank frame.Thanks .Steve

If this is about the parts you refer to read this instruction sheet for information.

Steve, most all modelers that build these locomotives use the CA type glue on these parts. There is a product called "Debonder Un-cure" it works great and loosens the parts to remove them. Different companies make the same product.

If you happen to have a can of Acetone from the hardware store around (somehow, contractors have left me three part cans), it should also de-bond ACC cement.

Steve let me know if you want a copy of the Shay locomotive instructions when it comes time to put things back together.
