I had a good day today. I have assembled all the valve gear I even managed to make two rods that do not belong to to the 2mt even though they were on the fret.

I just need to put it all together in a manner that works.






The motion brackets were cleaned up on Friday, They are not too bad I still need to repair the hole in one of them. I was lucky as they are slightly different to each other, fortunately I was checking all the time whilst filing or I would of been putting metal back







I added two stripes of spare fret to either side of the frames attached to the cylinders with a length of angle for strength and a couple of 12BA screws to hold in place against the frames this will make the motion brackets detatch with the cylinders and front end.




I have tacked one slide bar and bracket in place. I have the bracket too high but ran out of so will hopefully get it sorted in the morning. But it shows how the whole idea works. I did find that the connecting rods are about 4mm too long. They would of pushed the crossheads into the cylinder. I did then check all the other rods but they are fine.
