         Crank hole centre to piston proper.
    Steam inlet to tunnion (centres)  
  End of cylinder to steam hole    

We have found that there is no "standard" for SE engine pistons.

So, we have written down the range of lengths found, from
crank hole to the piston proper and not including the
piston. In other words from the cylinder to the crankshaft pin
when fully extended.

We have found that the piston diameter ranges from 0.311 to 
0.315 with the upper size causing a problem in matching to a
cylinder.
