Hello,


Just wondering what everyone else is doing with their Accucraft open cab shay smoke stack. The fine screen on top seems to get clogged with steam oil and no steam comes out. Kind of looks like an electric shay going down the track. I can't have that.


The only way steam comes out the stack is if I turn the throttle way up to an unrealistic speed. Now I have a passenger hauling shay doing 60 mph. I thought about buying

the stack for the Mich/Cal shay.


My question is has anyone just removed the screen or just drill out the screen to match the holes in the stack or maybe a better idea? I kind of like the way the screen looks but if it has to go, its worth it to me so I can see steam.

Thanks


Bruce

Thanks for the advice guys. Nice video Alan. I might just try removing the mesh.
