After spraying I applied the pin strips with a Buegler pin striper.
The MW has a 30 HP boiler which is made by the Goolds. This boiler produces enough steam for this car
The pump pit is placed in the same place as with the 735. For the steam oil I use a Madisson Kipp lubricator.
To transport the MW, I bought a closed box trailer that fits the car exactly.
In order to be able to get on the road legally with the MW, it was inspected by the national road traffic department.
This is always an exciting moment because you never know the outcome of the research because it is a special project. But still we managed to inspect the car within a day.
I have now driven the first kilometers. I had made the connecting rod of the water pump too light. This broke off almost immediately. I am also still looking for the right adjustments from the burner. I am listening to every strange sound I hear while driving. And there are a lot of them. After every trip I get more used to the car. The boiler maintains good pressure and the fuel system also functions properly. After every ride I come across small things that are easy to solve.
Building this car was a nice adventure. I have met nice people and learned a lot.
The MW will be shown for the first time during the Melle steam event 2019
