Class 4MT

Many hours spent on modifications to improve the usability and durability and get it to a reliable standard including:
Horn blocks built up and fitted to axle boxes to remove play
Rods re-bushed and various small pins replaced
Piston valves shortened to improve valve events
New longer water gauges with step up so much easier
Twin injectors on the right side under step
Axle pump removed
Rear bunker filling hole and drain underneath
Drain fitted to oil tank
Smoke box draw bar removable
Hand pump reworked to improve effort and stability
Guard to enclose the rear axle to protect from ash
Rear drag beam strengthened, regular coupling and safety
Ben Pavier replacement scale safety valves
Can be seen running. Two years on hydraulic, steam test until September 2022. Video running at Southport though a few years ago (and before some of the backhead fittings mods) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDDzpUO-OTM
