Adding PF to model 9395 for crane, steering and driving in the car. Phase 2; steering and 2 receivers.
About this creation
For the steering you really have to break down the model back to its frame around the cabine. For the Battery box you had to remove the HOG steering already. Now you also have to remove the rest of the steering construction to replace it with the engine.
I use the steering engine newly introduced in Lego model 9398, 4x4 Crawler. Advantage you don't need to fit in return to center construction or speed reductions. This engine is very smooth for steering. If you have the IR control of the trains it even turns with your wheel.
Above the gears mounted to the engine. This one will fit in the frame nicely.
Now the engine is placed we can start rebuilding the car again. It is not difficult but you need to make sure you remember what you replaced and how to build the model again. Notice during rebuilding that you guide the cables properly. Otherwise you have to tear it down again to get the cable released. (Just experienced it myself :-))
Tried to show in 3 pictures the rebuild.
Now you replace the seats with the IR receivers. I just connected them together for more stability.
Finally you have to extent the lever a bit for the switch between the functions. So this does change the outside look a bit of the car. The doors do not close as tight anymore as in the original design. It doesn't hurt but it is not like I stated in my first phase story.
In phase 3 I will show how I replaced the engine for an engine.
