New tip for injector and new barrel for pump and it's new again.

greetings bernhard


It's a bit slow on the forum so I"ll post something. Few days ago there was a lister cs with a build on compressor for sale. There was a bit of 600E I think thats what it sold for.
Think that might have been a good investment. Was only online for two days and gone.

And there's a VA for sale not mine...
Couple of cs's some JP's,

Busy with perkins at the moment no time for listers.

Thanks for all the nice replies, its missing some brackets so when I speed it up the air casing is resonating and touching the flywheel. Brackets were welded to the fueltank support still need to mount them.
When you speed it up it does start to 'walk" a bit. It's an 8/1 with alluminium piston maybe that helps to keep it more ballanced. I have a 6/1 som thats really not as ballanced as this.

Just an idea they sell mega blocks/ anti terror blocks, big one is 1,60 meter/0,8/0,8.  2400kg and here in holland 100 euro/120 dollar.
Had a simmilar plan like you once but changed my mind in the end. I went the flexible route.

cheaper than doing yourelf i gues

greetings bernhard


Still some brackets missing, found they were on the fuel tank. Was the first run in the new location.

Every man should have a container like this in his garden.

Goodday you can have a look at stationary engineparts thats where I bought them. Special section SOM parts.  Greetings Bernhard

Thanks for the suggestion but like glort says it's to expensive to transport. Guy is asking 200 euro for the engine it's a clearout of some rent a box kind of thing. So he does not know anything about the engine. It's a 1,,5/2 hour drive for me one way that's keeping me from picking it up. Does not seem expensive to me.

Hey Glort it's a dahlander motor, I use it for my chp start the lister with the low rev setting when the lister is reaching it's 600 revs I kick in the high revs to feed back. It's from the days when the frequency drives were still expensive. Now they still use it to drive big fans for example.

Maybe a stupid question, I was looking at a china clone that came up for sale and I am just wondering where can you get a pulley. Tried several google searches but could not find anything.


Hey Bruce it was a bit late when I read your message. By the looks of it I think in the siemens s7 we have the function block diagram. There are codes and blocks with conections that don't seem to go anywhere. Now that I see your message I think I should have a look at it. I could really steel the show if I have some knowledge of it.

Node red is not a language to put in a plc, at least as far as I know, I think you can talk to it with modbus or OBD and and do a lot more with your plc.
Quick look on youtube, www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV78MQks6BI, just scroll past the install stuff and you can get an idea what you can do.

Greetings Bernhard

Hello bruce, I will read it and have a look at it. I like this stuff so I like some new input. Come back to you later.

Hey Bruce, the only language I "know" is C I put a lot of time and effort to master the language. At moments I came close, but after a while .... at the moment I can sort of read the code and understand what is happening, it's not so hard actually.

Mqtt is just made to send short messages or to reseave a message to do something((Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is an ISO standard (ISO/IEC PRF 20922)[3] publish-subscribe-based messaging protocol.). Small and powerfull.  Node red can do also  someting with mqtt but it's really powerfull it's not some half ass attempt. Just google or have a look on youtube.
It's standard inside raspberry pi.


Hey Bruce I know you do not like other people's software but I am not smart enough to make something myself from scratch. There have been times I came close but after a small year most of my skills are gone again.
With the "new" esp8266 you can collect data send it wirelessly with mqtt to a broker and use node red to control all of it. Node red is also something to google. Really interesting. You can do your "coding"in there it's graphical.  Just like to encourage people to have a look, it's not hard even I can use it.

You mentioned the teensy board, I heard about it but am not familliar with it. I saw you can also program it with arduino ide.

In my job we have mostly siemens s7 plc's there is no ladder diagram inside (was made 2013). Nobody in the group has really the skills to really find what your looking for in the raw code. There is scada wich gives you access to certain things but at times you need to adjust a timer or such and most of the time it takes a day to find what you need to change where. I really don't know what they used for programming they have remote sessions to adjust/make changes.

So in short with mqtt and node red and some microcontrolers of your choosing you can make something complex dirt cheap and with very limited knowledge. Have fun.

Greetings Bernhard
