We have a boiler, a boiler shop, and components from a stripped steam crane carcass on which to base the replica. The wheelsets were already on hand. We're now gathering up the specialized fittings and appliances to fit it out.

Among those we have are two 3/4", Penberthy B-21 injectors. We plan to use one as primary feedwater source, with a "steam lizard" pump as the secondary. We also have a nice steam lizard, which will also be plumbed as a water-jerker and fire hose source.

The injectors are short a few parts, wondering if anybody might have to spare:
1. Steam nozzle.
2. Steam inlet tailpiece and bonnet nut.
3. Suction tailpiece and bonnet nut.

i can get new ones made but decent used will work fine and look more appropriate for a backwoods logging lokie. Any assistance appreciated.
