Re: Basket case 2-4-0

Not the d valve, the slide block in the eccentric link. I may have my terminology wrong.

Re: Basket case 2-4-0

Almost had it running today on air. Almost. Really. Well, a half cycle, almost. I still have timing issues, the engineer's side seems okay, timing wise, but the fireman's side is still off, and I can't seem to get it dialed in. I read a few articles on timing, and watched a few videos, so I'm not ju...

Re: Basket case 2-4-0

Huh. Interesting. Bought some flare fittings (big box store), not sure if the assembled pieces will fit, so it might have to be compression fittings.

Re: Basket case 2-4-0

The fireman's side crosshead is complete again, made a new slide piece for the top and a new bushing for the pin. There is hardly any slop in the drive system now.

Re: Basket case 2-4-0

Made the first replacement parts today, first chance I've had to do more than just look at it. The valve train seems to work okay, it had some missing bushings along with a few other parts. The engineer's side rear driver was missing the spacer between the rods, and after a bit of measuring I found ...

Re: Basket case 2-4-0

I have a box with about 20 pounds of drawings in it, along with a bunch of pictures. It is near identical looking to the Virginia and Truckee J W Bowker. That's what I am going to shoot for when all is said and done. I had a brief moment where I thought about turning it into a Maine 2 foot gauge, bu...

Basket case 2-4-0

I traded some rolling stock for this 2-4-0 in pieces. What I was told about it was that it spent several decades as a window decoration for a junk dealer. Someone spotted it and bought it, and sold it to the gentleman I got it from. Most of the major pieces are there, the running gear has been run o...
