Wheatland Machine & Repair,Inc.  Photo Album  -  Maynard's Frick

This Frick engine belongs to Maynard Peterson of Hampshire, Illinois.   It required extensive welded repairs of the firebox and complete replacement of the barrel.  A new front flue sheet and the re-mounting of the original steam dome completed the repair.  All stay bolts and rivets were replaced as nearly as possible to the original construction.  The original barrel had a riveted lap seam but the replacement barrel was built with a welded seam.  The ASME Code was followed throughout and the boiler was returned to its' original pressure of 150# upon completion.
