On the Steaming instructions, it mentions a blower from Steam Fittings, contact Arthur Colemon on 01341 280637. At 17.60 item code 001702. Mike

Afternoon all, engine back together after its little accident!
Steamed it this afternoon, had a new blower which worked very well. Raised steam and had plenty of water left in boiler.
Found out that the crankshaft got bent when it fell off table, now have spoken to Steve at STW, and agreed that was the problem. Have ordered a new one that will be sent out tomorrow.
More to do no, will start taking it apart tomorrow.

Afternoon all
Engine taken apart today and can clearly see crankshaft is bent! Now awaiting replacement to arrive.
One good thing can out of today, taking it apart I could see that oil has been getting though well, you can't really tell when together. Wicks are working well.

Good news that everything is going back together.

Nice being able to order spares over the phone and not have to spend weeks machining.

Hi Lynn,
If it wasn't for STW I wouldn't of been able to build the engine. I have very little engineering experience. And no room for all the equipment needed
You guy there are a god send to us.

This is what I always promote when I'm at rallies, its amazing how many folks dont realise that you can run an engine with spares just a phone call away. Not that I've needed much in all honesty, mainly I'm sure down to the decent quality of the kits.
