Re: Steam cylinder?

good Morning Richard,
Have you looked into allen models

the chloe cylinders are 1.5X2.25 bore and stroke. it is a little small on the bore
or you can use the larger cylinders which is 2 X 3.25 bore and stroke.
at lease you dont have to mortage you house to buy these!!!!
I hope to helps
chris
