Hi All

Well progress is being made. Not  a lot to show for 7 hours of activity over 3 days.

Counterweights now fitted. Machined the gaps a couple thou' under and jacked the weights on using the bolts to get a nice snug fit.

The I needed to fettle the keys for the eccentric cams and they are now fitted. Still need to align them once the crank is in place.

This mornings activities

Get the eccentrics squared up with the expansion links and fit the big ends to check alignment and non fouling. Everything is single bolted and just nipped up.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 A204AA81-6DBE-4E75-8682-F0A0F729E927_zpszgyyidl5

I will need new key steels for the waterpump gear and 3rd gear boss. Due to the original ones being a loose fit on the new crankshaft.

Hi All

Well I do not know how I did it but I forgot to take any more pictures of the crank going back in. Must have been concentrating so much.

Well on to the roof refinishing project. Now that the temperature has got above 5C on a regular basis it is resin time. Hopefully this is the final coat. There is a few little bits of dust in it but I hope it is going to be fine once hardened.

Hi Mark

Due to finances and health. Both lacking. I have not booked any events this year. I was meant to be at Chipping last weekend but cancelled as the engine was not ready and not much change of me getting her ready in time. So for the time being I am keeping her fully dry and just pottering about with jobs when the body allows.

Seat frame serviced and painted.

Universal tow point. Can pull wagons on the normal engine pin or fit the 50mm ball and pin for towing other things.

All towing forces passed straight through to engine taw bracket. So very little strain on the seat or tender edge.

Hi All


Not been out doing much the last few weeks. Today I decided to make a bracket for the diff-locking drive pins so they can be stored without using up most of the toolbox on the belly tank.

Easy to get to but tucked out the way.

Hi All

Sorry for the lack of updates. The health thing getting in the way somewhat.

Managing to potter about with a few little jobs. Thought I would move the second shaft oilers.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 CEB2E016-DAFC-43E7-A6A5-7EF5FB8673A9_zps7d6qgith

Much easier to get to for the injection oiler and removing the lids etc.

Then on to the cannon boxes on the rear axle. Instead of the boxes filling up with water and wasting a lot of oil. I am going with the oil post on the back head with tubes down into the cannon boxes and oil tubes to the axle bearings. Similar to Tim I think. Just waiting for T joints to arrive for final pipe cut and shape. The pots are mounted on my own fabricated brackets.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 7545EC52-D002-411B-96A7-C60A25910180_zpsiloretx3

I will be light steaming the engine in the next 2 weeks for a hot blowdown as it is boiler inspection on the 26th Oct.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 0C73A8FD-B619-482B-A660-90F9EFE0C25C_zpsduc19hrq

All the modifications to the oilers for the 2nd shaft and main axle are now complete.

would you possibly have some pictures of the mods to the main axle oilers, please?

As requested Elwood


Read axle right hand side oiling pot. If feeds down the outside of the water gauge extension pipe.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 2019845D-1AAE-4811-9D91-FB1A59B1D813_zpsgy3nebxd

then arrives in the cannon box and fits right in to the hole for the oil passage.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 004687EF-A060-419D-B33E-997A82C74B1F_zpsdufr4crp


The same thing happens for the left hand side.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 9FA6A45F-1E3E-4CEA-9B1C-0DDE2236A115_zpsqefkvvr8

Arriving at the cannon box. Again feeding straight in to the oiling hole in the casting.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 4040A45D-77EA-4C32-A24C-ADE5A78584BD_zpssm8507wb

2nd Shaft oil pots got moved out so the old fingers can handle things easier.

The left hand 2nd shaft oilier.  The copper tube was just annealed and bent differently to move the pot out of the corner on to the same bolt as the rear axle oilier.

Lynn Robinson. Showman Scenic  Part 2 - Page 13 306D79E5-D898-45D6-9196-E11379AE4228_zpszulrxec5

And you guessed it the same idea for the right hand side. But this time I needed to make a new bracket with a long tab to allow convenient mounting.

Thanks Lynn,

Will try to come up with something similar, the elbow at the cannon box is hard soldered to the original oil pipe stump, right? Was trying to find an elbow small enough to fit into the cannon box.

Thanks again

Hi Elwood

I uses Pipe Elbow - 90 deg - 3/16” pipe part no 60/063

from http://www.livesteammodels.co.uk/shop/index.php?route=product/category&path=49

They are soldered nipple and nut fittings. Easy to solder with "electrical" solder or silver solder. I just used soft "electrical" solder as there is no pressure and the heat is not a great deal either. The new oil pots for the main axle are also from the same company. Only fabrication was the modified bracket for the right hand 2nd shaft oilier and two brackets for the new rear axle oil pots.
