I bought the Allendale kit for my Tom Senior some time ago but have not yet had the confidence to install it. I wanted to keep the functionality of stops and power feed trip and have not worked out how to do this.

Merry millers photos very encouraging to me although I cannot quite see from the photo if your stops and power feed lever are operational. Is that a special feed lever?

Is there anything that you would do differently?

Did you by any chance keep details of the dimensions of the brackets?

I need to remove the pettycoat pipe to access and remove the blown superheater on PV Baker on a loco loaned to our club. The drawing shows it to be inserted into a brass casting but no means of fixing is shown. The pipe is copper the casting brass, there are no signs of solder or grub screws. I have made up a stepped drift to fit pipe but am reluctant to give more than a sharp tap with 1lb hammer this had no effect. The smoke stack casting is riveted to the smoke box but heads are not visible on inside. There is a copper reinforcing ring which appears to be integral with petticoat pipe covering up where rivet heads would be Any hints would be appreciated.
