This is a short pictorial that describes the installation of the Kato FL12 decoder in the Kato N Scale Water Tender. 

The decoder cannot be used natively and the 928-065 light board kit must be modified for its use by reversing the LED leads on the light board.

Do not attempt to make these modifications it you are not very comfortable and understand the techniques in modifying and soldering a circuit board components and installing the FL12 decoder.
