Buy yourself one of these and connect in to the generator output.
The 20Amp version has its own internal shunt so the power go's straight through it at all times and you have volts, Freq, watts, Kwh, amps, all for less than the cost of a few beers.
Got 4 of them on things. I know Glort collects them.

Well done mate, we need pictures. By the way did you ever collect that other engine i put you on to, out west?
Good news on the panels, i have a whole lot if you want.
Our energy company just changed hands, and today they just installed our two new smart meters. Don't that suck.

Might help.

my zs 195 manual says head bolts to 25 kgf.m (kilogram force meter)
If my math is correct that's something like  180 foot pounds.

Thought the same thing, put one on dads holden statesman, years ago.
Most of the ones you can get these days have a vacuum operated servo, so no go.

Thanks Guys, the most expensive part of the setup is the actuator.
Bob i have see the units as cheap as 60-70 Dollars.
So you could almost afford a spare if you needed it to be bomb proof.

No Sorry mate, but this is not a bad price for the lot.


Its exactly the same as the picture my mate sent. he works for a mining company, and it was in the stock to be cleaned up.
You you don't need a cheap 250kw 3 phase motor do you? make a good induction generator.

Hi All;

I have been offered at a very good price an new old stock one of these units.

An was wondering if anyone had any experience with them?

What i was thinking is i could put the speed sensor on the output shaft of the gen head and control the engine speed with the unit and always have a 1500 rpm generator no matter the load.

Thank you for the kind offer off the CD. But you have told me everything i need to know.
What Im wanting is to collect as much useful information, on the S195 type engines as i can.
Thinking of knocking up an information web site. As there are others out there, probably not a lot of them, who would be interested.

Is the Utterpower CD worth chasing up, for info or has all the information filtered though to use in other ways.
My interest is the S195 china diesels.
