Hi Everyone, I'm new here and don't usually have much to say but this is something I've actually done so I'm happy to be able to contribute my idea. I removed the original pivoting mounting pad and spacer, filed down the raised circle on the pedestal, removed the edges of the coupler gear box -- see highlighted portion of photo below, and then bolted the gear box directly to the original pedestal. This way everything is really solid, and I added a bent strip of brass to prevent the gear box from rotating too far (I needed some rotation for smaller radius curves). I don't remember what Kadee # this is, but it looks like a small offset #1 scale coupler with a 831/1831 gear box.
