Re: Olburner for small models

To Fred_V The gear provides a wider angle (about 120 %) for the throttle lever in the cab. It turns the outside oil nozzle by means of a fine thread of 12x1 mm. May the drawings* will explain a little better the function of th inside steam nozzle of diameter 0.5 to 0.7 mm, surrounded by the wider an...
