2.5 to 5.0 kw Gen Head in Australia for S195 Engine
« on: August 29, 2018, 04:02:57 PM »
Can anyone suggest a generator head, two bearing type, that i can get in Australia that would be suitable for the mighty ZS195.

Or will i have to hunt down an old Japanese generator from the 70,s or 80,s  and steal the belt driven head.

Hi Andrew, contact Stephen at Ozlisteroids. He had a pile of new Chinese ST heads he was scraping as they were non compliant with Australian standards. Got me an ST5 with replacement bearings, brushes and AVR delivered for about $200.

I believe he also has stocks of compliant heads but they will be more expensive.

Stephen contacted me it looks like i might have a ST5 head in a week or two if it all comes together, so might will be out with the notes on your rebuild.
And time to start on mine.

Bravo OSM, glad Stephen came through for you.  :)

I`m just waiting on a new bridge rectifier and heat sink and mine will be finished. I will post some more pictures when it is.
