It was while working at Shiplake that Turner designed his No.1 Model Steam Engine.He drew up the patterns which he then sent away to be cast.SEL 1530 Standard Circa 1946 - 1965 These were fitted with a dummy safety valve, as the boilers are very Low pressure, any excess steam Pressure is vented through the cylinder Engine frame, missing its wick burner.High resolution scan of The 1927 Stevens Model Dockyard Catalogue.The output shaft is not part of the crankshaft so the fact that turns freely only means the gearbox is free to turn.
After more than ten years at the helm our proprietor, David Schofield, has taken a much deserved retirement and we wish him well.Try pouring some light oil or diesel into the cylinders and "work" the flywheel back and forward and see if it frees. I've had the plugs out and had 2 screwdrivers resting on the piston heads and turned the fw to see them bobbing up and down. Could the engine have been filled with oil before being mothballed? the crankshaft is made up on various parts bolted together, (i cant remember the tech names) these could have "slipped" causing the crank to lock-up due to misalignment.
