Bobby, This is great news that you have it running. There is light at the end of the tunnel. This is where I was a couple of years ago.....now it only has one major failure every SECOND time I light it up .  Like you said, the joys of fixing someone elses build.

Wonder where all the oil was going?  I remember filling the lubricator up on occasion!  Sorry to hear of all your troubles but glad to hear it's back together again!  Hope the burn heals soon.

Hey Justin.
 
Not sure but I know it wasn't going into the cylinders. I ran around Bob Deans track about 5 times and almost emptied the lubricator. So it's getting oil now to be sure.  
 
You will enjoy running her now though. She keeps steam fairly easily. The throttle is still an issue but that is a project for another day.
