hi

just a note to warn any would be builders of the published boiler design in issue 4399 page 312 it shows the back head drawing

it shows a radius of 2 1/4 inches from the centre to the out side it should be to the inside of the flange

otherwise it will be 1/4 of an inch to small don't ask me how i know
