I have three of the On30 locomotives 2 k-27's and 1 k-28 all of them needed a pad built for the standard KD#5. I am still working out what I want to do with the front coulper, I dont't need this to double head them but it would be nice for switching. This one of those problems where the Locomotives were designed to O narrow gauge standards not On30 standards. It would have been nice if MMI would have included a spacer for the coupler for those of us that are using the HO standard on our On30. I went to my local hobby shop and bought longer 2-56 screws and some plastic and tapped the hole to 2-56. This way I can pull the KD #5's off and install standard On3 couplers on these locos in the future if I so choose.
