Kadee Quality Products #38 Coupler Conversion Kit - Medium Centerset - 2 Pair

This industry leading coupler features plastic standard coupler with metal knuckle, and #621 torsion centering spring and comes complete with #233 insulated draft gearbox and lid. The #38 Magne-Matic® Metal Coupler is designed mostly for body mounting with limited space either above or below the mounting platform, with or without Draft Gear Box Lid and with Draft Gearbox Lid either on top or bottom.

For the following models:
Bachmann Spectrum DD40AX, EMC Gas Electric Doodlebug (rear coupler only), K4 4-6-2 Pacific (tender only), 2-8-0 Consolidation (tender only)

Note: The 30-Series Torsion Spring can be mounted either below or above the coupler shank, but must always be mounted between the Coupler Spring Lid and Draft Gearbox.

The 148 Whisker® Metal Coupler mounted in a #252 Snap-together Gearbox is equivalent to the #38 Coupler. The Whisker® Coupler mounted in a #252 Snap-together Gear box makes for simple and easy assembly. Other Whisker® Coupler #38 equivalent options include #158 Whisker® "Scale" Metal Coupler, #118 "SF" Shelf Whisker® Metal Coupler, and #119 "SE" Shelf Whisker® Metal Coupler when mounted a #252 Snap-together Gearbox.

It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gearbox to avoid possible electrical crossover and shorting that may cause damage.
