Dcc decoder plugs

Hi all
Is there a tool for putting in an removing the dcc decoder plugs.
Obviously you can’t pull the wires an a small screw driver applies a twisting motion.
Tweezers dont seem to grip them so wondering if there a specific tool

Re: Flying Scotsman kicking when running

Hi Rodger
I have had all gears off as wanted to check the axels were not bent
All gears are fine I thought about cracking it a worn tooth but look as they should

Re: Flying Scotsman kicking when running

So Rods are not catching
Axels are straight all bearings are fine
Yet still doing it.
Could it be a dud chassis as that means a trip to Hornby as that won’t be an available spare I bet

Re: Flying Scotsman kicking when running

Hi Bigmet
I was running it at a local club that I had gone along too.
It was there I noticed it’s kicking did all checks mentioned above there.
It’s just my own layout that’s currently dismantled

Re: Flying Scotsman kicking when running

It’s a loco drive model
All the rods seem correct aligned When looking underneath.
I’m borrowing a rolling road later to see if I can see something while running.
I don’t have a layout currently so it’s not easy to check without

Flying Scotsman kicking when running

Hi all
I have the Hornby NRM edition flying Scotsman
An it seems to be kicking when running
I have checked the quartering
The back to back and even the axels
There is slack on the axels compared to the other A3 but all looks ok.
Any ideas I’m drawing a blank as to what next
