I recently purchased a 1923 Stanley 740 5 passenger touring. I have been reading everything I can about it and think I have a reasonable handle on how it works, but everywhere I look I find another valve.

Reading and watching videos is a lot different than having actually done something, and the first time I fire it I would like to have someone that has done it before with me. I am in Milford MI, 48380 and if you have first hand experience with a condensing Stanley and you are willing to help out, please drop me a PM.

Thanks!
-Joe

Joe,
Borrow a copy of Story of a Stanley Steamer by George Woodbury. In the back of the book is a reprint of the instruction manual that came with the Stanleys.

Ah Joe,
It has been said that no two Stanleys were plumbed alike! Make a drawing of yours and then you can think it through, as no matter how differently they were plumbed, the systems pretty much all worked alike. Wish I were closer (I'm in N. California), I'd love to help you out, and the Woodbury book is good reading too.

Joe, one of the members of one of the couple of local clubs I belong to has a Stanley Steamer. I've seen him fire it up, & ridden in it. It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun! I'll try to connect him up with you! Tim
