Help. I'm writing from the edge of blindness after working for an hour
with the MTL #2004 coupler, getting it ready to install on the tender of
my Spectrum 2-8-0. First, I assume that I will have to remove the old
coupler pocket, file the tender bottom smooth, and drill a hole for the
new pocket. Is this correct? I can't see any way of fitting the
coupler in the original pocket. But I'm waiting for reassurance before
I cut the old pocket base off.
