The lack of a suitable size pipe adaptor fitting meant I decided to make one.

The thread in the exhaust port is 3/16 with a thread pitch of 32 tpi. And the pipe fitting is a flare.

And fitted to the engine.

I have changed the steam inlet to an angled one which is much more user friendly

This was the one I intended to use originally but could not find it.
As is always the way, I found it the other day while looking for something entirely different and unrelated.  ;) 8)

Great to see this running on steam Dave. You must be happy with the resurrection progressing along nicely.

The new inlet has a slightly larger internal diameter, I did not think it would make any difference but it does in fact run on a slightly lower pressure.
