Generators / Another generator not generating
« on: August 20, 2019, 02:20:05 PM »
So I went to buy a Honda E1500 and came home with a Kipor diesel generator (photo attached) I was told it needed a new AVR so I fitted a new one but no power. So far I have cleaned the slip rings and tried to flash it with a battery charger. I get about 3 volts from each winding and 25 from the brushes with the engine running. Is this too high?
As usual I'm stuck with what is probably a minor electrical problem. I suppose it's possible that the AVR is dodgy even if it's new its Chinese.
Any suggestions? Thanks

I was thinking this little generator alternator would be useful on the SL1? What do you guys think?

Generators / Geko Brand Generators
« on: August 03, 2019, 06:04:24 PM »
Does anyone have any information about Geko Generators? I got one for the huge price of free. It has a Honda GX390 engine, the carburettor was full of sealant so a new one is on order. It's got 55/240/415 volt outlets. If it runs it should make good power?

Everything else / Is barbeque lighting fluid naptha?
« on: August 01, 2019, 10:43:13 PM »
I was told by Glort et al that petrol stabilizer is basically naptha. I have been using paintbrush cleaner however I see barbeque  lighting fluid is very cheap. There's no list of ingredients does anyone know if its naptha?

Everything else / Compressor oil grade
« on: May 13, 2019, 10:11:45 PM »
I was at the tyre shop today and I noticed he had a 50l compressor sitting in the office. A few words 20 changed hands and I have it. He said the motor was working so I took the head off cleaned the reed valves and I have a 20 compressor. The oil was black and thin so it's been drained. My question is can I use car engine oil? I have 10W40 semi synthetic and 5W30 synthetic oil in the shed. I could give the local parts guy 10 for 500 mil of compressor oil but I'd hate to do it if I didn't have to. The compressor is Bergin branded so likely Chinese. Any ideas?

Everything else / Re: Stripped threads repair help needed (Solved)
« on: April 19, 2019, 06:17:52 PM »
Hi guys, I bought a petrol cement mixer in a box. Apparently it wouldn't start and got taken apart. It was only a suck valve tappet and it's back together now but... The end of the crankshaftshaft where you attach the pull mechanism is stripped. I am looking for a cheap and lasting way to fix this if anyone has any suggestions?
Thanks

General Discussion / Solar Chargers
« on: November 26, 2018, 04:15:45 PM »
I have been reading a lot about solar panels and chargers (thanks Glort) so I thought I would look on  a well known auction site for a brand name charger. Sealey is quite a big name in tools in Ireland UK
