539 Parts needed

Post by txbritt »

Needed for maintenance, and restoration of two S-2's in Houston.

6 Injector pumps
6 injectors

The overspeed/governor drive assembly - all of it. from the large gear that bolts to the cam, all the way up to the bevel gears on the gov. itself.

Actually, the entire 1000lb fuel pump/cam/governor assembly would work.

waterpump

low oil pressure shutdown solenoid resistor panel
low oil pressure switch

A PG governor. I'd like to upgrade one of the locomotives to an internal switched governor, and do away with the SI thats currently installed.

2 cuno filters


I have a question about the air compressor on the 2350. It makes a "thunk" every so often, but only after the compressor unloads. Yes it has oil in it, and good pressure.

Thanks for any help,

I would suggest that you make a phone call to RELCO or Hatch & Kirk which is located in Texas.

Check with Peter Smykla at the railroad museum in Pine Bluff, AR. He purchased the A&M's inventory of 330, 539 and 244 parts.

Casey sold all of his 539 parts? Doesn't he still have an RS-1 to maintain?
