Found some more time recently so had a potter in the shop. Made and fitted the spigots inside the cylinder covers, finished all the studs for them, and marked out and drilled the slide bar support. Just waiting for the opportunity to fetch out / steam/video the "finished" engine.

Been having trouble with pictures so I hope it works this time.             Terry

Having sold all the bits for my 2nd engine (mid shop crisis thread)  I had to get the 1st one out to access all the bits. To keep it safe security patrols were set up ^-^........

After  a lot of "non-shed" time I have managed to extract the engine out of the house, onto a trailer, and take it to work.  The boiler inspector arrived and did the business. Fortunately I had solved most of the injector/ clacks/ water pump issues and we now have a legal boiler :pinkelephant:           I have just sent off for insurance and the NTET disc, so all go soon!

The mechanical lubricator is playing up so is currently being rebuilt >:(   When that is sorted I will post the video of it running.

Regards     Terry

That is a major hurdle Terry, and a sigh of relief no doubt that the boiler passed inspection. Also looking forward to the video.

Made a spacer and modified the fork to raise the nose so that it sits correct.  Ran it at the weekend :pinkelephant: Daughter took some videos.  Now need grandaughter's partner to sort out u tube/linketc.  (all too technical for me :old:)

                                                             If this does not work you will have to forgive my incompetence and wait for family reinforcements of the IT kind :shrug:

- family IT support activated - enjoy!

The middle video didn't seem to take but the other two are excellent!
[EDIT] Now seeing all three videos. Excellent!

It's a wonderful model.  :ThumbsUp:
