This installation is for the N Scale Kato EMD SD80MAC. It uses the TCS K2D4 Decoder - performed by TCS.

The picture above show the Kato EMD SD80MAC with the shell on.

First remove the shell by grasping it on either side (over the "Conrail" logo) and rock it back and forth until it slips off of the chassis.

Next slide and lift the original lighting board out of the chassis.

Apply Kapton tape to the area of the frame between the motor tabs so that the frame is isolated from the motor clips on the decoder.

Line up the tabs from the motor with the motor clips that are on the decoder.

This is a picture of the fully installed K2D4. This is an easy drop-in installation.

You can now replace the shell and run your locomotive!
