Cutting out the existing hole


Hank nuts fitted to plate




New top plate and hinged door




Have used Apexior 3 to seal tender

Thanks "storey" I just thought it would be a good idea to make this access hatch now whilst I can get to it properley, I have the same sort of arrangement on our 6" Garrett 4cd and it has proved to be really usefull over the last ten years or so, we also have a small hinged flap which can be good for filling the rear tender only, I tend to use the belly tanks as a sort of reserve supply if we really need the extra water as we do a fair few miles on the road with this engine.

Cheers Tim
