    I am working on a KTM brass locomotive for a friend and need to adjust the KD coupler height.
    Can anyone give me these dimentions?
    Coupler center height above the railhead would be enough to go on.

    Hello Ray,

    Here are the measurements from my Kadee coupler gage.

    Center of coupler is 18mm / 3/4" from the top of the rail head.
    The top of the box mounts 20mm / 13/16th" from the top of the rail head.

    Hope this is what you needed. If not I can remasure the gage.

    Greg

    Thanks Greg, That's just what I needed to know.
    The KD's on this loco were poorly mounted and I wanted to fix them as an added bonus to the rewiring and addition of wheel wipers.
