Hi all, I'm late to the discussion but since I am newly suspected of having lymphoma I thought I would add my 2 cents as well.
After my brother died a few years ago following chemo and radiation due to stomach cancer I told myself if I ever faced cancer I would try a natural route. Not to bother you with too much detail of my medical history, I have been looking into Rick Simpson Oil on YouTube.
There are loads of testimonies of people healing themselves using this stuff from all sorts of cancer, usually they try it out of desperation after chemo and radiation have failed, they are pronounced stage 4 and sent home to die.
I sure do not intend to go the chemo and radiation route after what my brother went through, and as I told my pharmacist a couple of days ago, if cancer patients were convinced that eating dog poo would cure them, every dog on this island would have a group pf patients following it around. I think she finally got the picture of the level of desperation people feel when facing a gruesome death.
As for me, I will gladly choose Rick Simpson Oil every time over Chemo and dog poo:)

Looking good so far. :)

The camshaft must be removed before the lower half of the lifter can be removed.

Thank you Dieselgman; very interesting (and tempting :laugh:)

Hi Dieselgman, I am curious; are your 18/1 engines the 155mm x 177mm bore and stroke models or some other combination?

What is the current price of your 18/1's?

Welcome sirpedrosa, and congratulations on the new project; considering it's age I would call it in great original condition.

I too am a fan of the PAZ1, and it is certainly in better condition than any of the ones I have, especially the sheet metal and fuel tank.

What are you planning on installing it on?

Hi EdDee, thank you for the explanation of the oil tank. Ingenious system. :D

Re: your auto-fill oil tank; it appears that the feed line from the tank enters the engine through what was originally the dipstick hole.

On my 6/1 clone the correct oil level in the top sump is several inches below this hole, how does the oil tank know when the oil level is correct?

To me your oil tank could be too high, depending on the answer to the above question.

Could your engine be overfull with oil?

Listard-jp2 is correct. These shafts fit very snug. A slide-hammer attached to a bolt screwed into the shaft is the easiest method that I found, and I believe the method recommended in the shop manual.

I would try backing them out until just a millimeter or two remained, and push a stout screwdriver through the hole in the shaft to turn the shaft into position.
You are close already, so make some guide marks before you start to help you get it aligned properly. A bit of heat might help.

Also, patience and slow careful tapping is required to get the shaft back through the rocker arm. At the first sign of binding you can sometimes just pry the rocker arm into position with a screwdriver if you haven't jammed it too hard by hitting the shaft too forcefully.

Lister Lt1's have the same arrangement, I completed the head work on my latest one yesterday and it is up and running today. You can do it :)

Other Slow Speed Diesels / Farymann 43F

Hello all, I am sharing a short video of one of my recent Farymann 43F acquisitions. That's a Listeroid muffler on it; I still have to sort the intake manifold and air filter, as well as the fuel tank.
I hope you enjoy it.

Engines / Now I've seen it all....
« on: July 02, 2018, 02:08:24 AM »
Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has ever seen this happen.
I just finished repairs on a Yanmar L100 air-cooled diesel. On Thursday  evening she fired right up on my first start attempt; feeling quite proud of myself I did a short video and sent it off so the customer could see the progress.
On Friday I mounted the engine to it's cement mixer and wound up the rope to start her. I yanked the rope and she started right up with quite a bit of smoke and rough running, and that's when I heard my son say "Dad, why is she exhausting through the intake?" Sure enough, that's what she was doing and I put my hand over the muffler and I could feel the vacuum as she inhaled.
Puzzled, I shut her down thinking it might be a fluke, and started her again with the same result. Quite boggled now, I thought maybe she is left-hand rotation, so I wound the rope in the opposite direction and gave her a strong pull. Exact same result except now the engine was running in the opposite direction. I shut her down and left her alone until this morning, all the while trying to figure out if I was actually seeing what I thought I was seeing.
By this morning I had prepared myself for some malady with the camshaft timing, but first of all I turned the engine by hand and felt as it came against something solid. I turned it in the opposite direction and eventually I felt the same hard bump. By observation of the flywheel I concluded that the bump happened every other revolution of the crankshaft which led me to conclude that it was either a problem with the IP, something was caught in the cam gear, or the timing was off.
Choosing easiest first, I removed the Injection Pump, and sure enough the "solid bump" was gone. It was a brand new IP but nevertheless I took it apart and examined it but found nothing wrong.
I then started wondering if the injector could somehow cause these issues, and after a battle I managed to removed it from the engine. At this time I used a piece of wire coat hanger through the injector hole, removed the valve cover, and by observing the valves at overlap with the piston at TDC I was able to determine that the cam timing was correct.
I took the injector apart, removed the needle and sprayed some Carb Cleaner into the nozzle and let it sit for a few minutes while I arranged my Injector Tester.  Not having the correct fitting to hook up the entire injector to the tester, I put the nozzle into an injector that could attach to the tester. At the first few strokes I could tell that the nozzle was not working properly, but I persisted and after a few more attempts I got a satisfactory Pop and Spray Pattern.
I moved on to the body of the injector and discovered that a previous "Diesel Mechanic" had not aligned one of the two alignment pins correctly, and instead of it entering its respective alignment hole, it had caught up on the body of the injector next to the hole and he had tightened the nozzle holder so tight that the pin had actually penetrated the injector body and mushroomed it's head as well! What a mess!
I happened to have a good injector body that was near enough that I could used the "Valve and Seat" from it to replace the damaged seat. I then used my grinder and "sharpened away" the damaged threads in the area where the pin had swelled them.
I then reassembled the injector and reattached it and the IP to the engine, checked that the IP was Popping the injector, and had my son give her a couple of good pulls and off she went.
Has anyone had similar experiences with engines acting this way?

Hi Hugh, thank you for the explanation.
Now I understand why they seemed to vanish without a trace....they actually did that.
What a pity they went out of business.

You are right; a Changfa or 3 is the next best thing.
I'm saving my pennies :)

Red Stone Engines / Does anyone know?
« on: June 18, 2018, 09:22:09 PM »
I've read the posts here and watched the videos on YouTube, but when I Google Redstone diesel engine the search leads back to same.
I understand that they were imported by 2 or 3 gentlemen in the USA and Canada, and they cannot be legally imported into the USA under the present ban, but who was the overseas supplier if anyone knows?

There is no such ban where I live and I am interested in contacting the supplier.

Thank you for your help.
