Chuff Proofing (3)

In Chuff Proofing (2), I showed the 'completed' superheater steady plates for both inlets and outlets. I later realised that one of the screw fixings was loose and would need to be enlarged from 3/8" BSW to M12 and the hole re-tapped for a secure fit.

(i.e. nearer the regulator)
Having enlarged the one I knew about, when checking, I found two more loose ones on the plates towards the cab front.

Hopefully these will all be secure in the long term and rattle proof. (I hate rattling noises).
