Default Regner Otto - Leaky Reversing Lever

I have a new to me Regner that is leaking at the reversing lever. It would appear that the front plate? Isn’t tight enough allowing steam to leak out. Is this normal for Rengers? I thought I would ask before I started to tear it apart.

I have attached a picture of the reversing lever with red indicating the direction of the escaping steam

Thanks
Kevin

I think you should tighten. Leaks are not normal for any loco.

Kevin,
My Otto doesn't leak. I suspect the bolts have worked loose, or that the sealing gasket (if there is one!) is failing. Shouldn't be too tricky to take it apart.
