just without the purple dye

Methyl Violet dye has no longer been a required additive for Methylated Spirits (Completely Denatured Alcohol) since 01st July 2013. Perhaps it will be a requirement again after Brexit!

I guess wicks burner will be calculated so that the alcohol is finished before the water

That was how the original 3 wick meths burner was designed, and should still apply to the current single tank 3 wick burners.

So is it just purple because that's what people expect?

I had to buy Nural28 for leaks.


My green MSS worked well from the start. But my black MSS needed to be started very difficult with the hand. Y . The pistons are very tight. I've done more than 12 runs with the wheels in the air. With lots of oil. And now works better. But still going hard. Need more runs.

Once it starts to work. Fill the burner completely with a syringe. Then run about 7 minutes. Until the alcohol is expended. And enough water remains in tus  boiler. Now I'm going to get metal mesh to make better wicks

It's Ok If i Use Ethanol Spirit (I Think It's The Traduction) Or ethyl alcohol?
I'm Getting Problems With Finding Methanol or Bio-ethanol ( The Unic Store Near Me Had Finished Them) So I Thinked If Ethyl Alcohol It's Ok For This Use, I'm Right?

The Leak Got Repaired By Adjusting The O Ring.

(Sorry for My English But The English Grammar Left Me)

Use any alcohol. I use ethyl spirit for wounds. from the supermarket . 250 cm3. 0.69 euros, If I'm thirsty I can drink it.

You refill alcohol until the locomotive works. Then with the deposit full. Do not refill any more alcohol. The locomotive will run for seven minutes and enough water will remain.

You should also keep in mind that if you use a high pressure safety valve. You must use some springs from the cylinders. more Stronger than the originals. Otherwise the pressure on the cylinder heads would escape. You should also use metal plate washers. To make the drive inverter spring more stronger

Sorry to hear you're still having problems. Some pictures, or even better a short video, of the steam leaking may help diagnose the issue.
