and see if I missed something
The 311 is twitchy... double and triple check in the leaves of the pinions on all of the wheels. Check your escape wheel tool; might have worn teeth. Also check to see if the pallet is rubbing on the roller. For this you might need to just have the balance and pallet fork in place to really see into it. Do you have a timing machine? That could help pin point whats going on in the train for the short period you can get it to run.


All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
