Restoration diary

As one of RRRG's electrical officers I will write about my specialist field as well as general reports of work on site.

January 30th 2011

Dave, Ian & Pete torqued the remaining 10 cylinder heads down to 600 ft lbs, a somewhat lengthy task, having to remove and replace two of the large head fixing studs which had damaged threads. Dave had spent the weekend on site again & during Saturday had fitted new flooring in the no2 cab of Repulse. Chris B unbolted three fuel pumps. Tim & Dom had a good tidy up around our locos and coach, and removed old cab flooring round to the bonfire site, and I fitted and wired the battery charge diode, tidied up some sections of cabling with cable ties & Chris B helped me thread a long section of 16mm cable into the cubicle which connects one of the circuit breakers to terminal bar 7. With that last section of cabling fitted, all the fuses and mcb's are fully wired, and the small relay board that goes in front of them can now be fitted.
