    After a few days of tidying it up it was lit up. Some buggering about at the beginning (no doubt due to the operator) but it settled down to burn nicely for 2 hours last night before rain stopped play.

    Looking very good @Fireexit1 Great to see it in action. It would be nice to see it in daylight, one for the reference gallery me thinks!

    I need to take it apart to fit some replacements seals. We had a leak - I suspect the graphite packing. After the messy light up it is not so shiny so I will clean it and take some good pictures after reassembly.
    I am super impressed with it, although I hadn't quite realised how big they were. Now my brother wants one too.

    cheers

    It looks like It's a 300P or a 350 maybe
