All three crossheads have been final fitted, slidebar bolts tightened and split pins fitted.

The view on the right shows the middle crosshead.

 The crosshead forms the union between the piston and the connecting rod, through which, the power from the cylinder is transmitted to the driving wheels.

  The piston rod end fits here
