Problems with injectors fitted to Charles

Hello all,

My son has finished rebuilding Charles ex Bolbroke Castle and we steamed it for the first time on Sunday.
All went well except that we cannot get the injectors to work,, all we get is water out of the overflow and increasing the steam results in a hammering/knocking sound we think from the injectors. We think the injectors are called "Moving Cone" or similar and were standard on the Hunslet's.
I know at the AGM Blanche had them working but does anyone have any idea's as to why they are playing up or anyone who knows about them.

Any help welcomed.

Denis Mulford
