Bernhard, Looks like that worked very well. Seems to have maintained pressure. Those engine tend to be thirsty for steam.

Your engine looks very nice with the custom parts. Did you make that beautiful oiler?

Nice setup!


Looks real nice! I have the same engine and boiler and I plan to put it in a 1/32 tugboat.
It is based on the plans for the Brooklyn tug, so it will be pretty heavy.

I see you have a flywheel on the shaft. Would you leave it on when the engine is installed in the boat?

I wonder if a gear reduction will be needed on the shaft to get more torque on the 3.5" brass prop?

This is my first steam power boat installation, so maybe I can get some advice.
Thanks!
