    Thanks. So at some stage, this boiler has had the regulator gland moved to the LHS. Do you know if this was done in Hungary (or wherever the current boiler is from) or in the UK?

    We have 3x boilers for the 2x Yanks, and I'm unsure what's on what at present. So I can't honestly answer your question I'm afraid.

    Hi, I'm keen to keep up to date with the restoration of the 8F.

    Is there a website, Facebook page or blog I can access?

    Thanks..
