We have the operator's manual here on the John W. Brown, but could use a scan of a maintenance manual showing the preferred settings of the burner unit, specifically the spacing between the diffusion cone and the air baffle. The spray plate to back of diffuser is 1/4 inch, but how far does the assembly stick into the firebox as held by the large thumb screw????


: : I recently volunteered aboard the SS Jeremiah O'Brien in the engineering dept. Having been a machinist mate in a Garcia class destroyer I had nothing to do with the boiler system. Does anyone know where I might find a diagram of the boiler piping,valve arrangement and lighting off procedure.
: : Thanks for any help.

: You may be able to find a P.O.G. "propulsion operation guide" in some archive for the Navy. It's probably going to take you time to find that...I've thought about doing that kinda thing in Baltimore.
: Good luck- MM3 Copsey/ #2 Screw Crew /CG-23
