Further to my previous post, I wonder what the pop pressure is on the injector, probably hasn`t been checked for fifty or sixty years and springs weaken with age.

Just a couple of thoughts, if you can get it running and up to temperature you could probably do a bit of a running de-coke by squirting some water into the air intake, if you give it too much it will bog down. Might be enough to clean the exhaust valve and improve compression. Another idea would be to run some injector cleaning fluid in a liter of fuel, a poor spray pattern can make an engine hard to start.

Is there an adjuster on the de-compression lever? Could be that the valve isn`t closing fully or that the valve tappet clearance is too small.

I`d be very tempted to load it up with something (maybe your CS) and then give it a good run.

Hi George, very interesting observation. I posted a while back some photos of a genuine Lister CS governor linkage and a modern Indian copy. the length of the linkage levers was wrong and the alignment with the rack was terrible. I chose to make brass bushes for the original rather than use the replacement. Still haven`t made any smoke as I am waiting for the cylinder to be sleeved.

Eyes aren`t what they were but I`m still a pretty good shot. My bull sh1t detector is well tuned and I know which end of a cattle prod to hold. Would it help if I offered to take the position unpaid?

I consider it my civic duty to rid the world of these parasites, they are all going to burn in hell anyway, I simply want to accelerate the process. I would probably start in Canberra where there is a high concentration of overpaid useless individuals.

Once again Glort you have hit the nail on the head when it comes to the truth. The people don`t want the truth. The truth is inconvenient to them and undermines their feelings of superiority, entitlement and immortality. Governments have always known that people will believe what they are told and ignore anything that is likely to have a negative impact on their personal wealth and well being.

One of these days, and it won`t be long, they are going to get the shock of their lives when someone tells them they can`t have what they want because there isn`t any left!

Might be time to start stockpiling what is going to be in short supply in the near future.

Hi Flintfx, yes those are SR3 motors with nice Stamford  generator heads. Price looks OK depending on how many hours they have done and how much you need to spend to get them back in shape.

Hey buddy, this wasn`t a social trip. I would have liked to catch up with you but reason prevailed. I stayed with my Brother in Law who lives in the Eastern suburbs. He very kindly drove me to all the appointments and to and from the airport.

I also got to go and see my Father in Law, he has dementia and is in an aged care facility. I haven`t been able to visit him for over two years. He was a wonderful man before this terrible disease took him from us. Incredibly he remembered me and knew my name, we took him to the beach and fed him ice cream, he smiled and laughed. I guess that`s one thing ticked off my bucket list, hearing my Wife`s Father laugh again.

I`ve still got to pen a stinking email to my lawyers asking why I had to go to Sydney for assessment when my medical issues are still ongoing and undiagnosed/untreated.

Hi Guys, got back today, flights all OK. I had no idea my flight was being stalked by Glort but I wouldn`t expect anything less.  :laugh:

The trip was a total waste of time and the governments money because when I got to see the specialist doctors their information was months out of date. So I have been sent home awaiting another summons to attend the government doctors, once the doctors,lawyers and insurance companies have got their acts together.

I haven`t had time to catch up on all the posts I missed while I was away, I`ll try to catch up in the morning.

Hi Alex, sorry I didn`t get back to you sooner but I had to go away for another round of medical tests and assessments. Total waste of time as the experts I visited didn`t have the results from any of the recent tests I had done. The Doctor I was seeing is the top Government assessor, I think he is really pissed that he didn`t have the most recent information in front of him and said he would be contacting the regional Judge to complain. Some one is going to get a reaming, bloody sure it`s not going to be me.  :laugh:

Hi Mike, I`d sell power to my neighbors once the whole energy grid goes to sh1t. Only a matter of time IMHO

Thanks guys for that enormous amount of information. I`m off to Sydney for more medical assessments in the morning so I probably won`t be posting until Wednesday/Thursday.

It is difficult to express the horror that I feel about this trip, I don`t want to go but it has been forced on me by the insurance companies and lawyers. I have PTSD and am terrified in motor vehicles, I have no idea how I will cope in an airplane. Guess we will find out tomorrow, if you see some nutcase going postal worker at Grafton or Sydney airport it is probably me. Unofficially my councilor has recommended I dose my self with Valium about an hour before the flight, I`m not entirely sure flying wasted is the best solution but it may be the only option.

How I am expected to cope with Sydney traffic is a total mystery to me, I can`t cope with the traffic in Grafton! Very much hoping this ridiculous exercise isn`t going to induce another heart attack but I can`t help thinking that is all part of the insurance companies plan. Dead men don`t get compensation so lets give this old c*nt the run about and see if we can kill him.

What I find really offensive about this entire exercise is that non of these doctors I am seeing are allowed to make a diagnosis or recommend a treatment/therapy regime that might help me. These guys work for the insurance industry so when I arrive I will have to sign a waver allowing them to share my information with others.They will then determine if I am fit for work or compensation regardless of the wishes and diagnosis of the doctors who are actually treating me. What a crock of shit! Depending on how it goes, I may have to hunt some of these f*ckers down and explain to them the error of their ways. Don`t have a gun licence anymore because I am on anti depressants but I still know where the guns are kept.  :laugh:

While I am away, I would like to know how to rectify 240 volt AC at 15 Amps to smooth filtered DC at around 380 Volts at similar current. I`m hoping this should keep you guys busy and out of trouble till I get back.

Hi OSM. I so want one of those, does the guy use it or is it just rusting away? Either way tell him to fix the shed!

Thanks Bruce, thought that would be the case, I`ll start looking for a decent second hand stand alone inverter. Wonder if I should get more panels or put a diverter switch on the panels I have?

Many years ago some genius suggested pumping all the waste water from Sydney inland and using it for irrigation, could probably support a few trees. The environmentalists opposed the idea claiming that the water would be contaminated and poison the environment.

So we now pump it out to sea where it poisons the ocean then go swimming in it!

Great result.
