Nice, when I did mine I took your advice and boiled it in a 40 gallon barrel, there was still enough carbon left over to put lead in a decent size pencil. Anyway, now the fun starts.

The best way I've found of getting the carbon from under my nails is doing the washing up.

We run a small B&B / ski chalet, if we have a full house over the weekend it's a full roast dinner on Sunday night.  Doing all the pots and pans that won't fit in the dishwasher sorts out my cuticles a treat!

A Chalet bitches work is never done............

Cheers

Thanks Butch! Maybe gets me inspired to get back on to some of my languishing projects along these lines. Just too busy lately working with new building/inventory/health issues.

Our shop has been turning out the little water-cooled Alpha engines about as fast as we can manage - trying to keep up with the DitchWitch clients who were dropped after the demise of Lister/Petter. Can't complain about being busy though... the alternative doesn't bear considering.   ;)

Fresh out of the wash cabinet is a late 6/1 that came in for rebuild.
 I think all the black in the world hides inside hi houred CS engines?  No amount of scrubbing removes it from my hands, it just has to go away on its own. Thank goodness for the spray wash cabinet dont think I would enjoy the work if I had to do this with a pan of solvent and a brush.



Hey there 38ac

Butch - I'm thinking about your wonderful valve-events guide document.  Without peeing in your pocket I have to say that did great things to further my understanding of the process - and what is important and what is not in real-world terms.

My 6/1 has a noisy big-end and I don't feel I have a good grasp of the issues around clearance, crush and how the shims work and how to make good decisions around that stuff.  I think the journal's OK - has a couple of little scores; but it's a monster working surface and I hadn't intended to do anything to it

I'd appreciate any wisdom before I get in there and take it to bits

Cheers, Mike

Cool.  Thanks very much

I had been in denial, thinking maybe I could do an OK job through the inspection hatch in the case.

But, reading your thoughts, i will wait until it's concreted/bolted down in it's permanent (ish) home then take the barrel off so I can get at it properly

That description of the amount of lateral rock that is OK makes good sense

Thanks for taking the time to explain

Cheers, Mike

 When mounted in the rod the big end bearing I. D. should be 2.000.
...

Isn't that going to be a little tight?  2.000 inch bearing on a 2.498 inch shaft?  I suspect you meant 2.500 here... that or I've totally missed something.

You are of course correct 2.500 shaft :police:

The L version looks like something you'd expect to see in a Sci Fi show.

The Dursley lister rotary liquid hydrocarbon thermal energy converter that was left on the planet by a previous less developed species that knew a lot more about reliability and ease of Maintenance than was appreciated.

It does look like something from a George Lucas movie, LOL. It is the  "ball top" version of the L that as far as I know was only dispatched to Canada.

Thanks to the availability of entire TV series these days, I have been reliving a much happier and contented time of life watching Star Trek- Next generation episodes. Also got DS9 and Voyager.

Sure takes me back. Early to late '20s, living with and taking care of my grandmother then on my own, was on Tuesdays nights late enough that I could go to pistol club and shoot there till they finished sweeping the floors and Kicked me out, up to the wood fire Pizza shop in town Who I am sure would wair for me before they closed ( early on going there I scared off a couple of low lives with a knife trying to threaten the owner) and be home to sit down and eat and watch the show.

I remember sitting there waiting for the show to start the night of 9/11. I thought I had the wrong Channel at first and was watching a Movie. Then thought they must have changed the time of star trek and went to see what else was on only to find nothing, it was on every Channel. Then I realised it was the news I was watching and really happening.  Went to bed a 4:30 am and the Mrs asked why I was coming to bed so late. I told her " the world changed tonight" and told her what happened. She came in and woke my up the next morning when she saw it still on TV. I said I told you this last night. She said I thought it was a movie you were talking about. I sais I thought it was one too till I realised.

The Ball head looks like something the inhabitants of the planet Zorg 912 had developed as a weapon against the Romulans.

Take that thing to a show and put a bunch of chasing lights on it and paint on a face and you could scare the crap out of Kids and a few adults! :0)

Or sell it as an over unity power generation prototype. That seems a very popular area for the technically impaired.

Carefull Bruce, everyone knows that Big Oil is monitoring sites like this in order to suppress any chance of a bloke in a shed developing an alternate power source

Keep it furtive, as Ed might say...........
