    Not that I have the conversion chart on hand, but I'm sure it will be asked if you mean an Atlas or Lifelike SD-7/9.

    Is this the conversion for an old Atlas/Kato with the truck mounted coupler? I may have one of those.

    all i could find in my conversion tables is body mount #1162 (001 32 090). surely there is a coupler kit for truck mounted. but i can't find it. good luck.

    There is a T type of MT coupler that fits the pocket of most rapido coupler pockets. You might look up #1129 N Universal Medium Length T-Shank Couplers or #1102. I don't like putting N Scale couplers together but these are easy and quick to install.

    Another solution is to remove the old coupler pocket, drill or file out a new hole to allow for a body mount, MT (pre-fab) coupler pocket with coupler #1015-1 or #1023.

    I hope this helps.
