Help with how to install/mount Kadee no. 5 couplers on HO scale tyco operating hopper cars?

Hi, I am building my first HO scale model train layout and right now I am in the process of changing all of the couplers on my cars. I have 8 tyco operating hopper cars, but they have different types of trucks. Some of them have a metal truck with a permanently attached draft gear box. I can not get it open to exchange the couplers. Some other hoppers have Bachmann couplers (I think they are called horn hook) that are not magnetic, they just couple themselves when they are forced together. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

do you have an NMRA coupler guage for HO
they can be found in your local train shop
for most couplers you can open up and replace the old one for a kadee
unit but watch the spring inside doesn't go flying
set in place and check the height with the guage

for those trucks you can't open consider replacing the whole truck with a new one that has a kadee unit in it already

most modellers who replace their couplers also reposition the coupler onto the carbody so the truck can freewheel through curves without the twisting that happens with truck mounted ones
this will provide a stronger mounting for the coupler and reduce derailments

I also reccommend replaceing all trucks and or wheelsets with good quality free rolling ones as most tyco trucks dont roll freely
this is an easy thing to find out as a car with free rolling wheels will roll down any non-level track as soon as you put it on
if it doesn't roll replace both sets
this will reduce the wear on your locomotives and allow you to run longer trains
