According to Wikipedia, it is a simple engine; not compound, and has a 40" bore and 48" stroke. Operating pressure was 160 psi. a stall, with full pressure, the pressure on the piston would be 201,000 pounds. Two foot long crank arm. I need to look in my Steam Engine Guide, but it is long gone. A Lot would be my answer!
