just to try help a little finding the above:

with safari open, top left click on "safari", then preferences.

In the box that pops up go to advanced at the end, scroll to the bottom and tick "show develop menu in menu bar.

Now up at the top (where you clicked safari in the first instance) there is a new heading called Develop to the right. Click that menu and you will see "empty caches"

Hopefully that will sort it out.

Hi Ian

Thanks for the info, I did exactly as you said and it all panned out as you said however after turning off the Mac & then turning it on again Then logging in I have hundreds of question marks in little boxes instead of pictures and still no tool bar when posting something.

I think I'll give it up as a bad job now! Thanks anyway.

Have you tried using google Chrome or firefox instead of Safari?

I have used mac since 1990 and quickly stopped using safari as its crap.

Ive had many issues with it using web design so much so i vow never to use it again. Apple safari does not support all native scripts and could be the cause of your issues.

Latest little mod, when dismantling the stevenson valve gear the pin that goes through the brass block was quite worn on the sides which indicated that it was revolving in the two cheeks either side.  The wear should be on the brass block.



To remedy this I have cut a notch in the head of the pin and fitted a roll pin to one of the cheeks of the valve rod connecter.



I'm still having trouble with my computer in that it thinks that a certificate has run out on the 15th December 2016 and doesn't trust the forum.
At the moment I can post pictures but I can't see them!  all I get is a little question mark in a blue box.

Hi Steve,
Can you explain what the mod is, I can only see a worn pin.

Another little mod I've carried out to the crane engine,  although it passed it's steam ticket the injector was a bit dribbly.  i figured it needed a good clean, there is a sliding washer inside that diverts the water into the boiler and if that gets dirty it can dribble.  A friend suggested an ultrasonic cleaner, sounded expensive but only £20 on ebay so sent off for one.  As we all know taking the injector off means draining the tender & belly tank as one has to take the valve & filter out to remove the injector.  To overcome this I have silver soldered a short length of pipe & connector straight into the water valve body.  It pushes the injector forward 12mm but is still clear of the brake shaft.  The steam in pipe actually fits better this way as it's in the middle of the hole in the tender.  The water feed to the boiler needs reducing by 12mm.  Now to remove the injector for a clean it's just spin three nuts off & you keep a tender & belly tank full of water.



Here's the Ultrasonic cleaner, designed mainly for jewellery and very gentle on metal parts, just add soapy water and by the colour of the water after a couple of cleans it found a lot of grot somewhere!  It has an 8 minute timer and for a good clean it needs about 6 sessions.

A bit more bling

Whilst we were testing some engines the other day I notice one had a rather nice brass sleeve on the water control lever for the injector.
Here's my interpretation of it and I know I should have built a Showmans!!
