Nick-ME sizes on manifold drawing don`t tally withpipe sizes shown on pipework diagram. Can you give a list of pipe sizes for each function.

Thread: Test Run
07/03/2010 21:57:32
Hi there Nick,Very kind of you to reply.I know nothing about locomotives but a little about steam engines.I have built the steam engine between 2 side frames only, no wheels and nothing else. I test ran on steam from a stuart boiler with limited success but only after reverting back to my orginal position of the slide shaft pivot point,(ie 6mm higher that the position shown on the orginal drawing).I think my problem is the out of balance flywheel although I have several balancing holes.I am now working on the wheels hoping that I can balance the flywheel more accurately.As for your first question  I do not know how to answer it. Regards  Douglas.

I had my first test run 2 to 3 weeks ago and not really satisfactory  but  at this point I had  already raised the slide shaft pivot point 6mm .I have now altered it to the latest amendment but still having difficulty getting the timing right. Any further tips? Douglas
