Bob, I have never married so have no personal experience in what wives think.  But i have observed many friends, family and other married men...........and, all their wives think that of them.  Take consolation in the fact that you as wise as any one of a billion men

Hi VP, thanks for the nice comments. Let me make it clear that there is no wisdom here, I`m just passing on the experience that comes from repeating the same mistakes for a very long time, in the hope that someone can avoid those mistakes.

Bob

Just in saying that, it is obvious that you are a very wise man.  To be so humble as well, takes it to another level.  I read all your posts and am learning every day.  keep it up, and hope all goes well with the op.

Jackie, would you mind posting some photo's of the inside of your junction box.  My Hoffberg generates fine, but the battery charger is putting out something like 60V.  I'd like to compare, thanks.

Whether it helps the earth or not, it's still fun to take part in.  Also makes the hippie type chicks a little looser.  Win,win.

Thanks mike, my old Hilux has the 4y, 2.2Lt.  Also a bullet proof engine, but more of a dog.  Getting close to 350K km's now and only been opened once

You talk about the 2.2Lt engine.  Would that be the 4Y?  Is it EFI?

Death to all mud wasps.

I second that.  Huge problem with them here in S.Africa.  All my spare electrical conduits, alu ladder rungs, any hose lying around, even the clothes in my wardrobe are plugged with mud.  Hate the buggers

Mud wasps ruined the stator windings in my 7hp electric compressor motor. Built a nest in there and shorted out the windings, the little bastards.  Rewind cost estimate was more than replacement.

Original Lister Cs Engines / Re: Exhaust joints
« on: January 28, 2019, 09:10:45 AM »
I had the same issue.  I used the highest temperature silicone I could find at the time- the copper doped high temp stuff, Permatex I think.  Took it apart and gooped the joints. That did the job.

That's what I did.  The Cu silicone gasket sealer works perfectly and have had no leaks for more than 2 yrs.  You could also put an exhaust clamp around the joint and fasten tightly.  Unless your pipe is 3mm (1/8") wall thickness, this will crimp it on.

Bob, that would be great, please find the time.  From reading this thread, it would seem that the Brush unit is pretty much the same thing as my Hoffberg, and i would really like to know more and upgrade/modernise the thing.
