If I didn't send you the URL for the Dime Quarterly site, here it is:
Spend some time exploring the Web Links found under Resources in the left
(long) frame. Off the top of my head I think the axle assemblies may be
the same and I'm more certain that the center sections definitely are
interchangeable. There is also of interchangeability with the trucks, but
I think you need to change the side gears because of differences in the
splines on ends of the car axles vs truck axles.
It's really amazing that there's so much organized info about the 510s.
One of these days I'd like to find the time to organize a links list by
category and post it somewhere. 'Course that assumes actually having the
spare time to do it. Yeah, right.
