Heritage Midwest Steam engine - REPAIR question
I finally finished my BAGRS engine yesterday and ran it for the first time. However, the silicone tubing that I used fit so tightly over the cylinder "spigots" (input/output tubes) that it pulled the input one completely out of the cylinder casting. I don't know if they were press fit, Loctited, or what, but it is now loose. When I ran the engine yesterday it seemed to work fine but it dribbled water out of the hose connection to that input despite having the clamp on.
Can anyone comment on whether there is a way to secure the input barb back in place? Thanks.
