SE2 firebox by sv dave, on Flickr

Excellent post enough?

The overall length is a little variable, 2.700 was what that particular one came out at, my others range from 2 5/8" to 2 3/4". The joint is an overlap in the back left corner, looking straight at the front of the engine. It's an overlap, either soldered or later spot welded.
