3/4 inch scale Markie - stock code 3385

A 3/4 inch scale spirit-fired Markie traction engine, needing some minor work to restore it to working order - in particular the valve chest cover is missing, which is likely to increase fuel consumption. Somebody has fitted a mechanical lubricator which, scaled up to full-size, would be about the size of a tea chest - I would be tempted to put it in the bin and fit a small displacement lubricator.
