I’m using an old clock stacking tool to make holes in the bands (not the good one).  The little screws should arrive today so I can finish the engine.  The next issue is deciding on a common interface to the boiler.

Back together and running.  I have a displacement lubricator to install on the Clarkson vertical and am off to make steam lines to connect to the boiler project.

Just finished the supply line to the boiler and will test the engine under steam in the morning.
