As we all know,the restoration of a early steam car means that during the process things will be fit to the vehicle and removed and refit many times. This is the case with my Grout.
Having fit the boiler, engine and many other components, I thought it time to return to some of the base work needed to be done and not delt with again.
With this in mind, I've removed. The boiler, engine, air tank and muffler so that I could fit the insulation to the frame work that supports the boiler.
The boiler shown hanging is 16" dia. 12" tall with 356 tubes. The original boiler was 14" dia. The engine is a proper Grout engine, having had a total rebuild.
The frame work will get a layer of Fiberfrax paper, with a steel cover to offer more protection.
Work goes on.
Although not hanging,here is the boiler and a better shot of the rear boiler hanger.
