What fit should be achieved when fitting fire tubes to the tube plate prior to silver soldering ? I have my 5" gauge fire box fabricated and I'm now looking to assemble the tube stack. As per other info the tubes pass through both front and rear tube plates with out rubbing, Do the tubes require swaging into position. If so how do you swag the fire box end of the tubes with the fire box fabricated ?

Buy a copy of Keith Hales book from Cup alloys. Don't listen to anyone who says to make them a tight fit
