7 1/4 G Hunslet Fly Cranks

Can anyone give me advice on building a 7 ¼ G Hunslet, does the “ Fly Cranks “ fit with the flange to the axel box or as shown on my drawings with the flange outside ?

Hi Kevin, sorry you've not had any other relies. To answer your question, the flange on the axle box goes on the outside of the horns. However, I made my own axleboxes from cast iron with a flange either side. Somewhere, I still have the original Milner castings!
