|Conservation/ Maintenance History|
The engine has now been rebuilt at the museum. No 2 big-end was found to be U/S and was replaced. There was old damage to the No 2 journal which was stoned out. An unknown "squeak" from the No 4 exhaust cam follower became evident at the 2010 EOS and requires investigation.
