I purchased an Ind-X Steam engine on eBay in non-running condition. The electrical heating element was missing so I decided to convert it to use a propane burner.

The first burner unit I installed was a little too short to heat the entire boiler. It would get it hot enough to build up a little steam and keep the engine running at reduced speed for a short period of time. I did not have a larger burner so I took that one apart and did a little reverse engineering and built one from scratch that was long enough to heat the boiler adequately.

This is video showing it running with my home built burner.

This is the new burner set up. I purchased the propane tank and fittings. The actual burner I made myself. I neglected to take a photo of the burner before I installed it. I'll have to snap a few pictures next time I have this unit apart.
