Gary at DES or Central Maine Diesel should have them. There is also justliveoffgrid.com up in Canada.

I picked up a couple of these and will give them a try when I get that far. I bought the first ones. Not sure what the difference is. They are for the original 7 stud head but I would think they would work on an Indian head as well.

Hmmm. 50,000 hours?

Thanks again Willw. I do have one of those manuals on the way, should be here this week some time.

I will definitely shoot a video once it is up and running. I will try to remember to take pictures during the rest of the tear down and reassembly so I can post them up.

Thank you Willw. Sure is a noisy bugger at that speed.

Glort, that video does have quite the annoying tone to it. Hopefully some of it is just the camera they were using. Plus they are running it wide open. The muffler is a pepper pot style which doesn't do much to quiet them down. I will definitely be finding a different style muffler. The cowling definitely blows hot air across the air filter snorkel and the injector line is routed between the cooling fins on the head so I would also assume they were making an attempt to aid this engine in cold weather.

38AC, I have dug into this thing a little further and the quality is definitely far above what I expected from and Indian engine. I would go as far as to say it is nearly on par with a western produced engine. The governor mechanism is pretty intricate and very well made. All of the injection parts are Bosch Mico and have traceable numbers on them. There are QC marks all over and in this engine so either a real attempt was made at QC or they were really attempting to fake it.

More info to come as I pull it down for inspection.

Came across this and decided to pick it up. It is a Kirloskar KA-27. It weighs in at 200 lbs. It appears to be a roid'd version of a Farymann. The closest I can find is a Farymann L22. From what I gather online Kirloskar was attempting to get a foothold in the North American market in the late '70's and started importing these. I can't find much info on them so I am guessing they didn't sell many or they didn't turn out to be very good engines. I did manage to find a data sheet on it from a fella up in Canada. It has a rating range of 1.8 HP @ 1500 RPM up to 5 HP @3600 RPM.

I played around with it a little this afternoon. It turned over freely but got stuck at TDC. I assumed it was carbon buildup and was correct. I pulled the head which appears to be a nicely made aluminum piece which uses a copper ring head gasket. The cylinder jug is iron and the piston is aluminum. The cylinder appears to be glazed so it must have run at low loads. The rings were pretty gunked up but are now free and in good shape. I'm going to pull it down completely and check everything else out but so far it appears to be in good condition and surprisingly well made.

I will be a nice little prime mover @1500 RPM for a 1.25/1.5 KW generator head I salvaged from a Honda 1500 watt generator.

I have 3 original cranks and one Indian crank I can check this weekend. That is quite strange for one part to be metric. Who would have thought?

That screw locates the crank bushings. It keeps them from moving. No need to oil there. Probably not a bad idea if it has been sitting for a long time but you can accomplish the same thing by pumping the oil pump primer handle.

TTT. Still looking for something in this range.

Listen to all the poop you want it really boiled down to the states rights to buy and sell people.  Actually these states were offered status quo but they declared war for the ability to bring new states in as slavery is OK states.

It would be so nice if they taught the real reasons behind that war. There was so much more too it. But I digress. Everyone just wants to boil it down to one issue. Oddly enough it is the one that that is most divisive, go figure.

"Always kept under cover". Sitting beside the garden shed under a tarpoleon for 75 years may not be the gem one thinks it is. Just saying. I have seen first hand the moisture damage that can occur with a CS from sitting unrun for long periods of time. It can be ugly!

Glort's 40C(104F) day would be 313 degrees K.

They are the same @ -40 degrees.

I regularly work in both scales due to the equipment I work on. I used to work on some equipment that uses the Kelvin scale as it runs so cold.
