Setting Piston Valve Gear Timing


Hi

Can someone tell me how to set a steam engine's piston valve gear please.

Have timed slide valves ok - but not sure if its the same for a piston.

Thanks

Chas

When the piston is as far forward as it will go, then the inlet port should
be on the point of opening.
