Congratulations on another excellent build sir, the way you have it balanced one would not guess that these engines are known for rough running.

I was set on ultimately buying an 18/1 at some point, but after seeing this I guess I might have to side with Glort, buy a 16/2 instead, and blame it on you "It's all your fault".  :laugh:

Hello guys, I ran her for about an hour with a light load tonight. I have turned both the engine and the slab around in order to get the gen on the "dry" side of the engine, away from the water hoses. I still have to finalize the injection timing and optimize the valve timing per 38AC's method. My Tachometer is telling me that my engine is only turning about 525 RPM so I am down on power. I have a bigger pulley that I will try. All comments are welcome.

My goals for 2018 in order of importance are:
1 Finish my 1973 Ford P350/Benz OM617 project.
2 Finish my WVO settling/filtering/ storage project to run the P350 on.
3 Continue building my small gas and diesel engine repair business.
4 Go at least partly off grid by way of Wind, Solar and Listeroid power.

If it's what I consider old, antique, historic or whatever excuse my mind comes up with at the time, it comes home with me.
I have passed on too much "junk" in my time, only to regret it later (e.g OM617 Benz Diesel with tranny, 327 Chevy V8 with TH400, etc.)
My present philosophy is "I can always get rid of it later, but I will probably never come across another one".

Present case in point

Is it yours? Are you going to take a stab at getting it going?
It sure looks interesting.

My apologies, I left Houston just prior to Harvey, not Irma. I got mixed up with the names  :-[  . The rest of my post is accurate.

Gentlemen, thank you for the warm welcome and compliments. If I did anything right it is a credit to the members on this forum because I followed your advice and examples :).
Regarding Irma, we had some wind and rain but nothing catastrophic. However I was in Houston visiting my doctor that week, and in fact due to leave on the 26th, the day that Irma hit.
I saw the weather forecast and started making other arrangements, and my alternate flight left Houston at midday on the 25th.
When I saw the aftermath on the news I decided that it was time to finish this project, so here we are.
I agree that 38AC is a real asset to the forum; I have used several of his tips as well as the Utterpower CD to help me get this far. I intend to try his valve adjustment method in the near future as well ;).

Hello all, long time lurker and diesel engine fanatic here, situated in the Cayman Islands. Here are a few pictures of my current 6/1 Clone ST generator project. The disassembly, cleaning and balancing are done, many thanks to the members on this great forum. The engine and generator have been test run for about 1/2 hour with load but I still have a few minor bugs to work out. A video is soon to come.
