The bedplate, cylinder and guides are bored at one operation and cannot get out of alignment.
This resulted in a pair of cylinders flanged to fit the bedplate.
Mounted on the end of the bedplate is the oil pump, operated from the main shaft of the turbine as previously stated.
In one of the channels the bed of the trough slopes up slightly to the place where the “bedplate” is fixed.
Around the bedplate are located the oil-cooling coils, the oil strainer, the oil reservoir and the oil pipings to the bearing.
