Changfa Engines / Yanmar ts105c diesel aggregaat

Maybe not the wright place for the topic but I thought changfa is the yanmar clone....
This Guy has a Yanmar set for sale with a 5 kw generator for 350E thats pfff 400 dollar us. I looked into it engine type is from the 70's so the set most likely is aswell. I am in it for the generator.
I want to couple it to a lister cs or va. And it's an hour drive.
Is a yanmar ts105c of some value after this time and how about a 40 year old generator it still can take some load. I don't have a megger tester at home but how does a generator behaves after so much time.

Wonder about your opinions.

Greetings Bernhard

A small update on the matter, I got a quote from westwood liners, 38 pounds for a liner. Without tax and postage.

I found another workshop in the nabourhood they charge 60 euro's for boring 10 for pressing it in and another 60 for the finish.He could not give me a price for the liner but he mentioned it would not be breathtaking. So thats 130 euro without tax for the work. Not bad I think. I will think about it I have at least three that are maxed out on size if you add it up it still some money....

If I go ahead I will post the results,


To 38ac,

Thats a can bore tunnels with that.


Just looked again at westwood liners, there's a 1mm finish left so that must be the one.....

Hello listeroil, thanks for the pointer. I am dutch.

I work abroad so for the coming weeks there's not gonna be much action from my side, but when i'm home i will visit the machine shop with a cilinder block  and ask his opinion. The perkins he did for me he later machined the inside to spec. I will hear what the guy has to say, for them it's just some extra pocket money there normal job is biogas engines, combined heat and power engines.
Here at my job I have equipment that i could give it a try myself but taking a cilinder block in my suitcase is not an option.
Maybee he will give me pointers of what size to order or he will get them himself we shall see.
If I would live nearby I would bring them to mister 38ac was it only to have look at his shop.

Thanks for the input


Thanks for the replies, I contacted the machine shop some weeks back and they are to busy at the moment. For them this is something to do in a spare hour.
I will ask him and will feed back the result to  here, might take a while .

About the cilinder of stationairy eng parts, maybe they have better control over the quality of the parts they reseave. I ordered a buch of parts directly from india most was ok but the cilinderblock I used first after mounting and running the engine I found out the coolingwater side cover was made of cheap putty and steel,of course the putty fell out after 10 minutes  could put my finger in the hole, but easy to replace with original cover. then after a few running hours the block started seeping cooling water from multiple places from the cast from under the paint. Come on...

Probebly I was just unluckey.

Thanks for the suggestions,


Thanks for the replies, I was hoping somebody could point me to "" page 3 thats the one you need.
 A few years ago a machine shop did a job for me on a perkins 4 cil. I think it was around $450 for 4  new dry liners in the block, the liners came with the overhaul kit.
Some time ago i bought two blocks in india but the quality was so bad that I took them of again.One was seeping coolant from casting faults under the paint and the otherone just had a small casting fault in the liner surface I never even bother to use it.

So I have to do something with the original ones I have.

regards Bernhard.

Maybe somebody knows wich liner to put in a standard lister block. By now i have a few blocks that could do with a new inner part. I have searched the forum but i cannot find the real pointer.
Ithink it is cheaper to go to a machine shop with a few liners under my arm then let him search for the good match.

Regards bernhard

Hello there,

It's not so hard and complicated to take an injector apart. If you take the old ones apart for sure you will get the point how it works, you can clean the tips in clean fuel and give it a try. Just work clean. If you cannot get them to work you can order some new tips.
For the new injectors full throttle and keep spinning to get the air out, on top/side of your fuelpump there is also a bleeding screw just to be sure there s no air left there. It sticks out in 45 degr angle. If you work clean don't drop parts on the floor you can take everything apart without getting in to trouble.

Regards Bernhard

Just a few pictures to see the damage, crankshaft and cilinder blocks were sort of as expected only I missed the flywheel damage. I am thinking some thing with a tapered bush and use one of my 6-1 flywheels and bolt it to the tapered bush pully. Still have some time to think it over it's not a summer job anyway.

Thanks for the tip with the resizing, I'll make some more pics and show them. With the 10/2 I'll need to check what is the wise way to go. It's going to be very expensive. I'll post some pictures later
to show how bad it is.
By the picture is from the VA, still need to assemble it.
