    The photo shows an injector with an integral water supply plug cock valve and inlet water filter directly behind its oval mounting flange. So I would suggest thats a water tank, not boiler backhead, mounted injector. Hope that helps

    Might be worth giving Mr Bowman a shout down at Launceston.

    I'm sure others may have access to much more detailed drawings. All I can find is this drawing - for a G&C No 9. Its of course bigger than yours but, apart from the outlet flange position, much the same internal layout I believe. If you've got issues with your injector Barry Gambles of South Coast Steam is just down the road from you and has patterns plus perhaps spares in stock
