Generators / st voltage regulator popped
« on: March 10, 2007, 05:10:34 PM »
I blew my voltage regulater on my 12kw tawasi gen. head. I overloaded it when I overrevved the engine. The small round capicator or whatever it is popped and smoked out. I need to get a new vr to replace it. Can someone tell me where to locate one? Please. something as simple as possible since my electrical wiring skills are limited.

My Changfa zs1115g is a hopper feed coolant tank setup with a water pump. I want to go to a sifon feed large coolant tank. Can someone tell me how to hook it up. Can I use the existing hopper and ports or will I need to remove the hopper and install a manifold like Georges utterpower cangfa? ???

Generators / Dead st generator
« on: January 27, 2007, 11:51:28 PM »
I started my 12.5 kw st gen. head for the first time today and it seems dead. The red light does not burn and the panel meter is on zero. I removed the dogbox cover and checked the lugs and got 1.5 volts one way and 3.2 volts the other. I removed the back mesh cover and checked the brushes and they are all rubbing as normal. It is wired for 220v operation. I bougnt it from Muhammed at Motors, Generators and stuff and it is a Kawazi brand gen. Any ideas? ???

I have found a link to the ultimate Lister Chick at: www.peakoil.com    Go the the first page and look left to a picture and link to garden Girl. She is trying to break into tv with her video on permaculture, self sustience etc. She has also bought a Lister engine and could probably use the boards advice.  Check her out! ;)

I have a minipetter 3.5hp water cooled engine. Can anyone tell me how to set the time. I adjusted the valve clearance and forgot to hand crank the rockers up closed with each other and tried to start it. I reset it but now it speeds up and slows down every 3 or 4 seconds , could that be timimg?
