Some more details would help such as vertical or horizontal ?

The 7A vertical is 1 inch bore.

The No7A (vertical) and No8 (Horizontal) share the same cylinder parts so either drawing would do, unfortunately I have drawings for just about every other size except the 1" bore ones

Stuart horizontal 1 inch bore is a No 8 in my catalogue and is the only 1 inch bore I can see.

Might this be the one ?

Any info on the shay would be of interest .

Try Station Road Steam - archive section,

Look in stationary engine section and also projects as often there is a picture of drawing included with models, especially part complete.

Worth a try

Stuarts sell drawings, look in the spares list for the particular engine.
