This engine was built in Brandenberg, Germany by an industrial mechanic/trainee employed with ZF. ZF is a global leader in driveline and chassis technology, as well as (after a 2015 acquisition) in active and passive safety technology. This is a lovely, robust, yet basically built engine.A very interesting point is the separate eccentrics for the separate inlet and outlet valves on this single acting engine. The boiler is large as well, having a capacity exclusive of the dished heads, of 1,688cc.
You will get a nice long run for a full boiler. One feature I like very much is the firebox is set on a full 5/16 of ceramic will board insulation. Check the photo showing under the base!
The same thick insulation will protect any surface you run set this engine on for a run. HAND BUILT LARGE TABLE MODEL LIVE TOY STEAM ENGINE - TRAINEE PROJECT. LARGE HAND BUILT STEAM ENGINE PLANT.

The most information I have is ZF has its own training program, where trainees have 4 projects to complete during the training in their specialty with the Company. I have two of these engines, the other one has the nameplate removed. There are two plates on the machine. The operating instructions are included on the side of the boiler and say this. Maximum allowable working pressure 2 bar. Safety valve before each commissioning. Clean and lubricate after operation! Safety valve must not be changed!
Check the water level before starting the engine! Of the steam boiler regulation. The best piece of advice I can give the new owner is when firing this boiler be sure you have a large heat source on hand. The boiler shell is thicker than most model engines built now, and requires greater heat to run the engine continuously. I was using 4 double tablets of dry fuel, and that was not quite Eng to keep the engine under steam.Also, we will take and send photos to detail any part the sender requests. We're happy to help!
