REBUSH AMERICAN FLYER TRAINS
DIESEL CHASSIS
The most frequent problem with American Flyer Trains Diesels is worn axle bearings or axle holes.
The preferred method of correcting this problem and bring the engine back to optimal performance is to rebush the chassis.
While there are other methods of accomplishing this task, including an ill conceived tool on the market,
precision boring and insertion of precision made bearings is the only professionally accepted method.
This method also allows any future bearing replacement to be done easily and accurately.
A Chassis that is drilled with most other methods can be made useless.
