2" Burrell Kit 16B - Flywheel & Con Rod Kit

Post  Steam Traction World on Tue 07 Oct 2008, 5:57 am

Hi 2" Burrell Builders,

We have just had an update from our casting supplier to let us know that the flywheels will be delivered to us within the next 10 days. It is currently our intention to do everything we can to complete this kit by the end of October. As with our other models an invoice will be included in the kit and upon receipt we would appreciate payment by return.

All the best

Dean & Steve.

Hi Dean/Steve,

How's the production going with 16b, did the castings arrive as thought and are you still on for the end of the month. Smile

Hi 2" Burrell Builders,

Below is a photo of the flywheels as promised. Only 30 have been delivered with the remaining 70 due the early part of next week. We've already managed to get them on a lathe this afternoon and if everything goes to plan we hope to despatch this kit towards the end of next week.

Hi Steve/Dean,

I have today received an invoice for kit16, I assume this is for 16b I thought these were being sent out with the kits, has there been a change of plan??.

Hi Ian,

No change of plan that i am aware of. It's probably a copy that Isabel has sent everyone as some people returned theirs with payment. I'll check and reply when i get home later. (Still no internet or Email at the office thanks to the incompetent BT)

Hi All,

Just a further update on kit 16b which is due for despatch this week.

The flywheels we have been machining are unbelievably hard. We have been going through tooling and drills like nobody's business. We have therefore taken the decision to send them away for heat treatment to be annealled. This will hopefully soften the SG iron and make it more machining friendly. This process will mean that the flywheels will be away for a week and once returned we will have around another weeks work to complete them.

We do still intend to despatch a kit this week and instead of including the flywheel we plan to include the weightshaft bracket and crank shaft gear guard as replacements. This is in keeping with our policy that customers should receive parts to the value of their kit. The flywheel will then be included in the despatch due at the end of November.

Regards

Dean & Steve.

BU21025 - Oiler Tube

Post  Big Al on Thu 13 Nov 2008, 10:40 am

Keen as ever to see how it fits, I assembled Kit 16B only to find that I had the Oiler tube left over.

The instructions did not detail how to fit this all together, or refer to it.

When I phoned up Dean stated it fitted in the Oiler body BU21616 on the end of BU21017 to hold a wick, obvious really. Embarassed

Checking the ISO 16D I noted that there is a mistake in the part numbers. BU21025 was shown as BU21625 and also BU21017 is shown as BU21617.

Just in case anyone else was wondering. Laughing

Water gauge brackets

Post  Big Al on Tue 02 Dec 2008, 1:00 pm

Spent last night trial fitting the water gauge pipe BU21623 from Kit 16A to the top water gauge bracket, fitted OK but was a tight fit with the Steam head assembly in place and fiddly with a spanner
Fitted the lower gauge bracket with lock nut to the extension from the boiler. Went to line up the top and bottom gauge brackets and found they wouldn't line up. The problem being that the size of the olives on the water gauge pipe was so big that the 2 lock nuts positioning the upper gauge bracket had to be as close to the gauge end as possible to allow the pipe to tighten up. This in turn meant that the lower bracket was too far back to line up. when fully screwed in with the lock nut on it still wasn't close enough. The only solution was to remove the lock nut from the lower bracket and this allowed the gauges to line up correctly.

The upper gauge bracket can be fixed in place with the 2 lock nuts on the shaft as the shaft can be removed out of the side of the hornplate with the gauge attached. Makes it easier to spray as a unit and make a neat job
