Hello Piet,

What pressure are you going to run on the engine? Are you running condensing?

I'll have a go at steam consumption based on full stroke.....We'll go from there.

She looks absolutely wonderful , like a jewel . Almost too beautiful to spoil by using and getting wet and possibly dirty .
You have done a GOOD job , very well done .
