MAMOD WASHERS/ SEALS/ AND 'O' RING
MAMOD STEAM ENGINE SET OF WASHERS
Right for your Traction Engine and the Steam Roller - and others.
Using top quality washers will provide the best long term Mamod steam engine running experience. Washers normally last for many years but eventually they will begin to perish and let steam out from the boiler.
Loss of steam, however slight will reduce the maximum top speed and reduce the speed under load. And not only that, the engine will run out of steam quicker than it should.
Here you can buy these washers:
1. One for the Safety Valve 'O' ring that fits under the release shaft.
2. One for a Water Level Plug - if fitted on your boiler.
3. Two that are fitted at the base of the Safety Valve and the Whistle - if fitted on your boiler.
Tip: The 'O' ring is fitted by rolling it over the round head of the shaft - perserve and be patient - it will go on. But do not use anything slightly sharp as the ring will break before it is fitted.
This set is not suitable for Mamod SE3 steam engines or any using a 3/8th inch diameter Safety Valve.
