Default Korting and Sellers self acting injectors

Hi all.

I have two 3/4" self acting injectors and require some assistance in making them complete and working.

One is a Sellers Class M model 4 3/10. It is missing the end part of the body and the bit (I expect quite complicated) that fits inside.

Does anyone have a complete one of these that I can get dimensions from or have the parts made?

The other one is a No. 3 Universal which seems to be made by L. Schutte and Co to E Korting's patent ( or is that the other way around?) It seems to be mostly complete apart from some limkages.

Does anyone have any literature for either of these injectors?

What sort of boilers would they have been fitted to?

Thanks,

Andrew.

Hi Andrew
I just scanned the info on the Schutte Korting Universal.I have posted the Low resolution pic's here so if you need high resolution let me know via PM and I'll e-mail them to you. I'll have a look around and see if I have anything on the other injector.

Cheers Al

The Sellers M injectors were mainly used on very small locomotives. The 4.3 size refers to the smallest diameter of the delivery nozzle in millimeters.

The Strasburg Rail Road holds all of the extant Sellers injector blueprints and can duplicate any of the internal parts, but it is a very expensive process, since they are custom machined.

Hi Kelly,

thanks very much for the scans and the tip about Strasburg Rail. Do you (or anyone else) have a contact for the person to talk to about getting some drawings?

Andrew.

Andrew,

Kelly Anderson is in fact the person to talk to. He is employed by Strasburg RR and is the contract parts, pieces, labor, rebuild, & restore facilitator.

Yes I do look quite the fool. However I didn't even know where Strasberg was, let alone who was involved! Kelly has sent me a message since. Thanks.

Hi Andrew
I don't know how long ago your request for info on Schutte & Korting injectors was posted.
S & Ks were used widely on the Baldwin steam trams that ran in Newcastle, Sydney, Broken Hill, Kalgoorlie and I think Ballarat.
I am looking for a No 3 to use on the ex-Sydney steam tram at MOTAT in Auckland, NZ. If you ever hear of another No 3 for sale, or you wish to sell yours please let me know.
