    Looks familiar. ;D

    I assume it runs on air. Any video? It looks as if you have the temp. eccentric rod still there.

    Not far to go now.

    Dale - That looks real good. Thank you for posting. Any idea when a steam up might happen?

    I would run it on steam before disassembly if it were mine. It looks as if you just need to finish the plumbing and cylinder cocks. And you don't really need the cocks to test steam it. You do want steam oil though (lubricator). Do you have the blowdown valve on the right side?
