not like hatz though

Do you have one?  Which?

I have a couple:  E75 on a 4 1/2kVA gen - black smokes at a bit over 3kW - and a bigger one, about 8 horse.  It tries to escape but it only stands on it's own footprint and was used to vibrating for all of it's previous life as it came off a Bomag compactor.  It was seized when I bought it but I easily freed it off by removing the cold start holder and oiling it.  Good compression so I just started it and ran it to be sure it would stay free. It might find a use one day, or replace the E75.......

Regards, RAB

I still have 2 left/ both are lg gear and are pretty good engines/ I got rid of the petter from hell/ I finally tamed it a little. it now runs  but I would never trust it// also i would never start any petter with the air cleaner on it..and a good wrench in the back pocket to loosen the injector line/the petter could be a good engine but it has earned a well deserved reputation for runing away and falling apart,leaking etc.the petter has a higher run rpm/ I think the lister is easier to start.sid

please get me up to speed Sid, I have read every single post in the petter section and was under the impression that the run away issue were the Ash petters sold thru utterpower and not the kissans solt thru altpro , but other than reading here and some indian airplane engines I have no experience with indian diesels.

The air cleaner was not bolted in place, just sitting loosley on there for the pics , very easy to lift straight off if the need to smother arises .   I am very interested to hear any comments or advice on how to improve this engine , although the indian build procedures are a little third world I would think this engine would/could have the potential to be a very good engine.

It does look to be slideing around a bit in the video but I have a number of US made petrol burners as well as a couple of high qaulity german diesels that make that video look like the petter isnt even running. Compared to my 10 hp aircooled petter single the little indian engine is very tame .  The brit built air cooled is turning a 6kw 3phase gen and jumps up and down like a whacker packer
