    The red device in the gas line is an attenuator valve. When the boiler reaches a pre set pressure the attenuator turns the burner down to more or less a 'pilot' flame. As soon as a load is applied and the boiler pressure drops, it opens up again and the burner flame increases to maintain the pre set boiler pressure. I may have an instruction sheet somewhere. I would recommend a hydraulic test is carried out on the boiler before steaming, you can't be too careful. A local model boat club or model engineering society should have the required facilities for such a test...

    The feed pump was an optional extra and the boiler was fired by a ceramic burner. Jeremy at Clevedon Steam will be able to supply parts and info...

    Looks like a Cheddar Models Puffin plant. Clevedon Steam is run by an ex Cheddar engineer and carries plenty of spare parts.

    I picked up some steam items from a person who father passed several years ago and wanted to sell some of his hobby items. I purchased some and have some questions.
    Questions on identifying the make of the engine, make of boiler and the make of the fuel tank. And where to get parts.
    The boat is a lady Jane Maxwell Hemmings kit fiberglass hull(I believe in the early 90โ€™s).
    Looks like butane fired with a pressure regulator to control the flame once reaching the operating pressure.
    The butane tank is missing the filler plug. Just need the manufacture of the tank or where I can get a replacement.
    The engine is a two-cylinder oscillator with a fed pump running of the side. The feed pump is not connected. I would like to know the manufacture of the engine and if the feed pump was a option for this engine.
    The boiler may have a ceramic burner as I did not take it parts yet.
    Would like to know the manufacture of the boiler.
    Looks like the fuel tank, boiler and engine all use the same type of valve handles which may lead to the same manufacture for all.
    I did find an adapter as it looks like something to fill the fuel tank. Also found something that looks like a funnel that was under the steering wheel.
    Everything looks in good condition as it has some dust from being on a shelf. The radio is a old Nautical Commander and will be replaced.
    So, if someone could help with my questions above that would be great.
