    Hi Gary
    I looked at your harbour post pictures your boats look great.
    Yes after I ordered the parts I thought of a lever oiler combo will order that in the future when I can figure out the piping I will need and yes I can silver solder.

    Hi Rick, would you believe it is me yet again, I just thought you might like to check out my Harbour, as I have just put three boats in there, all with steam engines. Plus I was thinking if I where you which I am not but if I was. you will need to buy an oil lubricator for your engine, and Clevedon Steam has a lubricator with a throttle lever control valve attached to it, this would make a lot of sense. Question, can you silver solder as you will need to fabricate some pipe work? Regards Gary.

    Hi Gary
    Yes I watched the videos great work .
    I only have a small boiler but should get about 15 mins. run time and yes I'm hoping the eyes hold up the good thing is I can take my time at it.
    The slide valve timing may be another issue I will have to learn.
    Will keep you up to date when the engine comes in .

    Hi Rick, and there is no news like good news, I promise you will not regret buying the engine, a wonderful piece of kit and runs like a Swiss watch. its crowning glory is the fact it runs on less than 30 PSI an easy boiler pressure to maintain. I am sure you will enjoy building the engine and sorting out the slide valve timing, and you will have a good understanding of exactly how it works. Hoping the old eyes are still sharp, for all those tiny screws. Regards, Gary. PS. The ideal boiler size is 3 1/2" dia. 6" length, will give you near enough 30 mins. run time.

    Hi Rick, I have just posted a bit of video on here which I found very interesting, mainly due to the fine detail of the two figures in the boat, and the fact they are animated via servos. The stuff in the boat has to be seen to be believed, from a Bulldog to a shotgun and tools and stuff everywhere. Very very realistic, and steam beats electric motors every time, welcome to the club. Regards, Gary.

    Hi Rick, yes Clevedon Steam is where I get a lot of fittings and stuff from, and another one is Macmodels, plus they sell the TVR1 BB steam engine which I use. if you don't manage to post a few photo's soon, I am sending you a camera for Christmas. Regards, Gary.
