HOW TO SET A SLIDE VALVE IN A HURRY


| November/December 1970


Open the cylinder cocks; then open the throttle slightly, so as to admit a small amount of steam to the steam-chest. Roll the eccentric forward in the direction the engine runs, until steam escapes from the cylinder cock at the end where the valve should begin to open. Now screw the eccentric fast to the shaft. Roll the crank to the next center and ascertain if steam escapes at the same point, at the opposite end of the cylinder. The valve gear can be run until an opportunity occurs to remove cover from steam-chest and examine the valve.

The next time we get together, we will talk about pulling the packing, replacing it and rebabbitt bearings.

Have a good time at the shows and pray that the ancient, Hindu rain god, Indra, stays cool, calm, and dry.
