     Here are some photos. The chimney is a piece of copper pipe that has a plug in the bottom and was held on with a square nut below in the firebox, and there is no cup for the chimney, so I assume that was all replaced. The base is undersized and obviously is just a piece of scrap wood (full of other holes). Which I think is very puzzling, why would anyone replace the original base, especially since everything else would seem to be original except the chimney? Can't think of any other reason, unless the engine was dropped and the base alone was broken? The sight glass was obviously worked on at some point, and I have not gotten around to investigating what is holding the bottom block on. Anyway, here it is, if I can't find any simple way to get it working then I will pass it along to someone else.
