Adjustment of the steering gear

Finally we have got a run on the steering gear. We have run a number of times and the total mileage is between 500 and 600 m. The steering is a type of clutch/brake and it has taken time to adjust, because just as the clutch begins to release, the brake must be applied. Therefore, a lot of time and many practical tests have been required before the steering gear was properly adjusted.

In the movie below we see one of the first test runs.

Test run time

After 80 years it’s time to move for its own machine. Absolutely amazing to see. Not to mention the curve technique, a great pleasure.

Then it was time to get back into the workshop, because there is still a lot to do before everything is ready.
