    I am installing a Diditrax DH163ip decoder in a Kato SD40. The instructions say that the roof weight has to be modified. Do you have to use this weight, (does it carry current) or can you not use it ? Also one of the instructions says:
    Some locomotives employ
    motor filter capacitors in the
    locomotive wiring. These
    may cause problems with
    Supersonic decoders and analog
    operation on DCC. This
    capacitor should be removed
    for safe operation. Does this loco have a motor filter capacitor?

    Need help !!! Colin​
