To builders of Emma-Victoria, to make easier access when notching up the Valve Gear whilst on the run,I moved the Reversing Stand back 3/4" and re-drilled and tapped the frame 4BA to accept hex. head setscrews. This meant that the Reach Rod was extended by 3/4" making the hole centers 813/16". Another advantage of using tapped holes is that it keeps maximum clearance for the firebox inside the frames. Unfortunately I did not alter my pencil drawings to reflect this at the time, hence this was overlooked when re-drawing on Turbo-Cad.

I hope this small change will not be any problem to builders.
