Fitting the Boiler to 3822

The first thing to do is clear 1 road in the shed and get the boiler in to the lifting shop, a lot easier if you push it in with an engine.

Position the lifting straps so that the boiler is balanced. The next stage is to lift the boiler of the trolley and get rid of the trolley.

Push the frames in to the lifting shop, and position under the boiler. The ash pan is already in the frames and will need bolting on to the boiler when it is in situ.

Get ready to lower the boiler in to the frames, you may need to move the frames by hand to exactly the correct position.

Its in place, now its just fitting the ash pan, with some minor adjustments from inside the boiler.
