6-Feb-10 The first mounting of the boiler on the frame. The orange strap is keeping the boiler tight against the smokebox until I can weld the mounting ring. The back of the boiler is temporarily held up with wooden blocks while I wait for my metal order to come in. We spent some time fussing with boiler position on the frame. We didn't find much of a reference for centering it left to right. We ended up trusting the turret bushing on the backhead to be centered, lining it up with the drawbar kingpin hole. We had leveled the stand before mounting the boiler, so using a small 6" level inside the firebox, we used the crownsheet to set the boiler level left-right and front-back.
