It is a power house. I flushed the boiler and cleaned and resealed the sight glass. It has the original chuff tray and smoke stack as well. I made a counter weight for the whistle to specs and a new brass fill plug.
I included a copy of the instructions from the Wilesco web site, and some other info I put together. I included a bag of fuel, a bottle of steam engine oil, and a 500ml (16 ounce) incremented fill bottle.
I tested this engine and it ran great. It is mounted on a hand crafted Spruce platform.
In order to expedite your order I go to the post office as soon as it opens the following day. Since they are pre-packed, I cannot combine engines. Note; Sometimes Spruce will get a warp to it as it dries. I dry my lumber in a rack for several months, but this is not always enough.When it changes climates from the high humidity of Florida to an area that is prone to have low humidity it can exacerbate this condition. I always position my engine or accessory on the top of the crown, so it should stay level on the intended surface. This seldom happens, but I wanted you to know it is a possibility.
