not sure it’s a good sign

You might expedite things a bit by using full-size boiler practice and starting with the gauge glass only 1/4 full, or even a bit less. (Assuming you have a pump etc to top it up once steaming starts in earnest.) Depending on the boiler design, water will expand and come up the glass somewhat as it heats up. And filling with hot water from the kettle etc would cut firing time a bit more. Every little bit helps.

Hi, thanks for all your input chaps. Before I do anything else I am going to get someone just to double check my work on the regulator. And then will try again if that’s ok. Will keep you all updated.
