Classic UK Minitrix Models  -  Class 47
Circuit Board
Time to put the two weights into position - note the two pegs in the base, and how they mate with the two small recesses in the chassis.
Here is the rear weight fitted.
Now the trickiest bit of all.  Insert the bulbs, one at each end.  Here dropping the rearward bulb into position.  You will need to have the chassis upright for the front bulb.......
.....and then place the circuit board over the top, making sure that the copper tag keeps the bulb in place at the rear, and at the front,.....
....and that the tag in the centre makes contact with the positive brush cap on the motor.  And while you are juggling all of that, keep the green wire routed away from the motor and on the outside of the brush cap.

It all sounds easy until you come to do it.  Oh - and don't forget to prevent the weights from dropping off if you tilt the chassis.


All correct ?  Sure ?  Good - get those screws in to hold down the top circuit board and make a final check that bulbs and contacts are exactly as they should be.
