Model steam engine help

My daughter's class is building steam-powered boats and I've offered to bring in a few model steam engines to show what the real deal looks like. I've got five, four of which are Stuart engines of the Corliss variety that belong to my dad. Two are working great but the other two aren't quite hitting right. I think the issue may be timing in the steam chest valve. They are running on compressed air. Anyone familiar with these? I'm hoping to get some quick help as I'm scheduled to come in later this week. Any assistance is much appreciated.

Thanks. I got them dialed in with a little patience and the help of one that was running smoothly as an example.

It's amazing how much power these little suckers can generate.
