Gordon,

I have an extra stock 3 cylinder Shay gas tank if you are interested. I converted my Shay to use an Accucraft Mogul gas tank mounted in the tender bath. Yes, one must be very careful with low water, and use the hand pump at a set time into the run. With the massive ram on the stock pump it takes only a short amount of strokes to fill the boiler, and then the wait for the boiler pressure to recover!!

Anyone thought of mounting and axel pump in the ashpan area, modifing one of the piston eccentrics to also run the axel pump?
