Steam Head Thread

Post  DavidH on Wed 11 Nov 2009, 11:21 am

Builders beware! The male input thread on my steam head just received in Kit 21 was considerably oversize. Having got it assembled on the spectacle plate and offered up to the steam pipe from the boiler the female fitting wouldn't even start on the thread. I took it off again and tried one of the fittings on one of the pipeworks in the kit with similar results, although it screwed on to one of the globe valve threads easily. I measured the OD of the steam head and globe valve threads to find the former to be 15 thou oversize. Happily I had a 9/16 x 26 tpi die and was able to run the thread down to size and it now goes together nicely.
So try one of the loose fittings on it first before struggling with it on the engine and finding it won't screw on!
On another matter, has Steve a problem with emails at the moment? I have sent a couple recently with a query and some photos but have had no reply??

With reference to Steve and emails, to set the record straight, apparently he DID reply to my emails but I never received them.
We have ascertained that he sent them to the correct address,and I receive several emails a day at that address from various people so i know the address works. They were not bounced back to him so they must have been going somewhere. Totally weird!!
Any email experts out there with any suggestions?

email problem

Post  DavidH on Sun 06 Dec 2009, 6:26 am

The above email problem has been solved.
Apparently my email provider, BT Yahoo, has a spam box of which I was totally unaware into which for reasons best known unto themselves they were diverting STW's emails among many others that I should have received. I have just recovered 35 from the last month which I assume is as long as they keep them. Goodness only knows what I might have lost before that!
Needless to say I have now reset it so that ALL emails go into my main inbox!!
