Re: Lubricators in 3/4 scale

Sooooo, if a guy was clever, he could maybe build it into the sand dome and use the sand lines as plumbing on a small locomotive? Or...maybe that is too much work for too little reward. It is funny you say that, I am using my sand dome for the feed my mechanical lubricator. But im not sure it will ...

Re: Lubricators in 3/4 scale

I would not even try to plumb one hydro lubricator to two cylinders, Unless it is BEFORE the tee If you plumb at the valve chest then use two lubricators I don’t even like using one mechanical lubricator with two outputs, because you can’t tell if both are working correctly. Many may agree with me, ...

Re: reach rod on a stephenson valve

You know Jesse, You may recall I had a heck of a time with the timing on my Allen American, and I believe one of the problems was getting this rod set correctly. She is still not 100% square. But I will handle that at a later time. when i pull her apart in a year. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/confused...
