Hi this is a big ask. Would anyone on the forum be willing to make a burner for my Latimer L4 engine like the original one or something very close to the original so I can steam the engine.. q43

Hi Kevin,

I did fire the engine on the burner you had with the engine.. It went well from what I remember.. The paint stood up fine if that is your worry.

You need to gt an L5, an altogether more efficient proposition when it comes to running and driving something.

Hi Mike the L5 sure is a beast compared to the L4. I just love the littler engines such as the L4 and the Minors as they are fun to run. Did you restore the L5 as its been done beautifully Mike.. Approval

The L5 was a big step up in class from the L4
