Reversing lever

Post  busman on Mon 24 Mar 2014, 3:21 pm

Has anybody fitted the reversing lever from the latest kit as have assembled and filed to diagram but the travel of the trigger only seems to be about 3mm and I do not think this enough before I start filing the quadrant. Please could anyone show photos if they have managed to have successfully fitted this yet?

Reversing Lever

Hi Busman           Mine is the same!!    I milled the slots in the quadrant as per the instructions and everything works fine. I must agree with you that the lever trigger dose not look quite right, but it all works and looks ok when finished.    Good Luck.   Steve A    affraid

Guys

I wouldn't file the quadrant until you have built all the valve-gear and even steamed the engine, particularly full forward and reverse position, to far forward or backward and the valve-gear will be strained. There is a point in the valve gear position once you pass it that it is trying to pull the reverser out of the quadrant slot - see the comments in my build thread from Highpressure on the page linked below.
