Precision Scale Models - HO Coupler Conversions



NOTE: Our conversions typically requiring the least modification to a model. The How To Instructions and Diagrams are based of the Standard Coupler; they will still be a good guide for the Whisker® & Other suggested coupler options. Always check the coupler heights with either our #205 or newer #206 Coupler Height Gauge.

*Our conversion’s based on only one model from a production run, there may be inconsistencies in a model’s production run that require a different coupler or model modifications to achieve the proper coupler height for coupler function.

** Metal Coupler Note: It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface to avoid the possible electrical crossover or shorting that may cause damage.
