Hi All, sorry for the long absents it's been a rough year. The worse is I had a stroke, but I am overcoming it. Here is a picture of some of the things I have worked on. I have had to learn a lot of things all over again. Hopefully, this year will be better.
Well, I have finely got some time to work in the shop. The leaks in the cyl. are not as bad as I thought. Here are some pictures of my PSI gauge. Making the bourdon tube was a real chore. The glass is a watch crystal.CH][/ATTACH]
Well, I fired my loco... Good and bad, everything worked good. The cyl. leaked a lot though, through the solder joints, I think I will put a sleave in the passages from the valves to the cyl. All in all not to bad.More work for this winter!
Hi, John Sorry to hear about your trails. Some advice for you. As I have been in constant pain since 1984. I learned to take my pain meds regularly even when I thought I didn't need them because if you think you are OK and don't need them when the pain does hit again it is hard to get under...
