Re: Looking for Drawings or ideas for Cylinder Drains

i can send you an autocad or DXF drawing for a "cab lever" operated valve. this is a ball check type with a sliding ramp piece that pushes the ball up to allow draining just like the prototype.

Re: steam plumbing

Bill, one thing i reccomend that doesn't show up on most diagrams is a ball valve between the boiler and the manifold. if you have a problem with any of the valves on the manifold, which you will, you can shut off the steam, make the repair and get going again without having to drop the fire.
