Lionel Veranda Turbines

We have seen several of these engines where the truck mounting screws have dropped out. Once they are out, the motor moves around freely. I have found the best way to pit them back on is to remove the body by removing the 6 screws that hold it on - 2 in the nose; 2 in the tail; and 2 right aft of the "fuel tank." Once the body is off, you can hold the motor in place while you reattach the truck. We apply a little Walther's Goo to the screw to insure in stays in there while still making it removable.
