Help!

I recently took delivery of one of these amazing machines. The post holding the safety valve lever had got slightly bent and in trying to centre it, I managed
to snap the post; leaving the thread in the base of the safety valve. Does anyone have any idea where I could get a replacement from or how to fix this?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and help with solving my dilemma.

Regards,

Gavin

Can you show a close up picture of your engine and it's broken part. It can probably be fixed by someone with engineering experience.

Please see the attached photo; the broken post is on the left and you can see the thread in the left hand hole

My suggestion [ if you cant buy a new one ] would be to go on the internet and find someone who builds models from scratch, like steam engines. The thread could be removed. the "post"could be drilled out , threaded and a new thread screwed into it. I presume it the same as the other "post"shown without handle. Is the "post"solid or does it swivel. Cant see myself. It looks like brass! ?? Perhaps describe how it works and you could use this forum to show a perspective repairer what you need doing.
All the best.
