Walthers Proto 2-8-8-2 Valve Gear Question
Author: 1500fan

The eccentric cranks on this loco are some kind of plastic. The tab on one crank that connects the eccentric rod to the crank has broken off. I want to reattach the tab with an adhesive that could work. Any ideas? I'm looking at Gorilla Super Glue XL CA and J B Weld. 

Thanks in advance
Scott H.

You might try one of the UV activated adhesives. Or Cypox.

Thanks! I contacted a dealer who stocked CYPOX. I'm told it's no longer available. The company is out of business.
