A.F. Product Gallery: Knuckle Coupler Kit

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:520
Road Name:Knuckle Coupler Kit
The #520 was produced from 1954 through 1956. It was designed to convert existing link coupler trucks to the new knuckle coupler trucks. The #520 was package in a tan envelop as show in the photo and contained two knuckle couplers and split rivets to attach knuckle coupler to the older style link trucks. The brass tube, also shown in the photo, was used to remove the existing link coupler from the truck assembly. From a collector's standpoint, the value of this item requires the original packaging.
