Two great quotes in the last two posts.....

A guy who thinks- "hey, I think can do what I need with less power" is well suited to practical off grid living. 

Just cos I'm gonna be broke in retirement doesn't mean I'm gonna be miserable lol.

Sums up exactly where my (and, I'm certain lots more guys on here) head is at!

Update!

The planning permission came today, nearly 16 months after I 'Spat and shook'. The original shake was conditional on obtaining planning, so there's another couple or three months before the property changes hands, but we're getting there........

Engines / Re: Lister ST1 becomes hard to hand crank.
« on: August 10, 2019, 07:46:57 AM »
Pull the injector out and reconnect it so you can see the spray pattern when you crank the engine.

If the pattern is good then it's likely both pump and injector are good.

If it's not then it could be either, take the injector to the local shop and get it tested, if the injector is good, repeat the test and probably the pump, or it's pluming,is at fault.

Just 'cos the injector is fairly new doesn't mean it's not playing up.

Might help!

I had a Rajkot IP that I had to strip down and thoroughly clean out before it would run, it came with an injector that was nearly as bad.

Still there was zero corrosion.......

Yes there are other starters of a similar nature, I can't remember much about it but I worked on a Deutz engine that was designed to be air portable, without any electrics, and drive an experimental pontoon / bridging set.

It looked like a starter motor and fitted in the same location, you wound it up in the same manner. but with a 1/2" drive ratchet, as I remember, and then let in go, I think it engaged with a bendix. The bosses son over wound one and it exploded like a hand grenade.

Bob, I've spent most of my life without knowing what I was trying to achieve, good, innit!

I don't know what my mate did for the rev counter, but the pick up is from a hall effect switch with four magnets mounted on the camshaft retaining collar. The whole thing then is hidden safely under the cover.
a very tidy set up

Can anyone work out why I procrastinate and get myself in a tizz? 

I'll give it some thought,

Hi All

The Lister is only a decoration, in a fantastic old building,

https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/all-pubs/scotland/inverclyde/the-james-watt-greenock

It was the main post office and has been turned into a pub by Weatherspoons.

The Lister may well have come off a ship, either refitted or broken up here. This was one of the biggest shipbuilding areas in the world, now there's only one yard left.

Hi all,
As I've said elsewhere I'm involved in a hoverbarge project and this has dragged me off to Scotland

Anyway I found this in a bar, The James Watt, in Greenock

Cheers
Stef
