Fitting a LM-2S in a HOn3 brass tender
« on: December 11, 2015, 08:03:42 PM »
Hello everyone.  I have a brass tender that I am looking to install a LM-2S into.  Dimension inside tender are 1.0" wide by 1.75" long by 0.43 high.  I understand LM-2S is 1.5" long.  With both 9 pin and 6 pin plugged in and leads bent up at right angles, will this fit in the 1.75" dimension?

Another problem is that tender is entirely brass sheet metal.  I plan to replace floor with styrene and open top where coal load is for speaker output.  Hopefully this will be enough for RF reception.

Any thoughts will be appreciated.
