As many of you have seen my other posts regarding my recent blue comet set. I am now taken on cleaning up the boiler. I figure the correct way to do so would be to remove the boiler from the frame and to remove some if not all of the brass details while doing so. So here are my questions:
What is the easiest route to remove only the light blue portion (boiler) from the engine, which screws to remove?
I notice that the machine screws used throughout seam to be the same size, does anyone know the measurement of slotted round head screw that is used throughout the engine and tender? I am missing one on the underside towards the rear and I am also missing one that connects the tender frame to the shell.
