Thanks Richard. I have made many o-ring type check valves that work much like the ball check but with an o-ring seat and a stem inside rather than the ball. They are fool proof.
I don't think they can be taken apart. Maybe get new ones and insert them in the oil line. This is on a friends engine and I'll look to see what the luber has for check valves.
I use a granger blower 1TDN2 made an adapter to cover the inlet and stick down in the stack. 40 years old, still running Just ordered it. Any pointers on the adapter? Stack Straight into the inlet ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk 12 CFM? Won't that take a couple of days to raise steam? Fred V

I made something similar to Bill's jig. I used a slitting saw and pulled 1/4" copper tubing through it to cut a slit. This was for the edging of the cab on an English style engine.
I have a drill sharpener by General. Cheap little thing but once I learned how to use it I really like it. Can't beat it for the price. I have a cheap set of those TIN coated drills. I use them only for brass and they work great. I have ground the cutting edge flat on almost all of them as I use them.
On my Chloe the copper steam tubes eroded through twice so I replaced them with 1/8" brass pipe 15 years ago; no problem. On other engines I have covered the copper tubing with a sheet metal shield which seems to work well.
