JD165 - First Run
« on: October 16, 2018, 11:32:51 PM »
Hi All,

I just finished my latest project.
A small JD165 air cooled diesel driving a little 2.3 KW head.
The engine makes 3.7HP @ 3000 rpm but I slowed it down to 2000 rpm.
The noise is a little more tolerable when the engine is not screaming.
Fully loaded I expect it to make approx. 1.5 KW which is ideal for powering a refrigerator, freezer, and some light in a outage.
These little engines use very little fuel.

Here is a link to the latest Fall release from Veggie Film Productions  ;D

PS: The exhaust pipe is temporary. I have not yet figured out a muffler arrangement.

Nicely done. Is there still a source for these in North America? I have a little 1.25/1.5 KW gen head I am looking to do something with.

Same idea as you, will run the fridge, lights, and TV/Radio.

Thanks Bronco,
As far as I know they are not available due to revised EPA regulations.
Same goes for Canada. Craigs List or EBay may uncover the odd one.

Not a lot of those angles Cylinder types around.  I think they are a newer version of the engine.  Jesse on the Microcogen site has a horozontal water cooled which he has put great effort and development into and mine is an aircooled. I have seen some where the exhaust and inlet sides are switched too.

Real nice setup as usual Gary.  You have a little clearance underneath so maybe you could find a small muffler and put it under the mounting plate?
They don't need a lot of Muffling, most of the racket is mechanical anyway.

Seeing a setup and engine like that makes me want to jump on Alibaba and go shopping! There are plenty of China petrol engines available here and the Vertical Cyl China engines but hard to find a horozontal and never seen an angled Cyl here for sale.
Be on it like a fat kid on a smartie if they were.

Thanks Glort.
Ultimately I want to run it on Veg Oil. And according to your experiences, this should not be a problem with these engines.
(Provided I dose with water from time to time).

Does OZ allow you to import stationary diesels still.?
If so, these engines are available from several suppliers.


cheers,
Veggie

Yeah, thankfully the ban on importing these engines is not something our Gubbermint has yet copied... but give them time. they like to take on all the stupid ideas.

The engines are not exy, getting them here is. I think it's bit of a racket to get more money for them in foreign markets without out pricing themselves in their own.
Seem to be a lot more of those angled engines available now. I'l wondering if they are the same as the horizontals just tilted on the mounting points or there is something different about them. I believe the horizontals have pressurized lube, mine came with an oil filter so if that's the case, would only need to maybe re do the oil pickup and should be fine.

The angling would probably be a more compact design. Fit in a smaller square box.

They are a very tough little engine and mine has power output well beyond it's rating. IMHO they are a far superior design/ build than the verticals.
One thing to pay attention to if you want to silence them is the intake. Mine make far more noise than the exhaust.

As usual for you that is very nicely done set. I have one of those engines that was sold new in Canada as a Jeri Diesel.

Thanks 38ac,
If you open up the inspection cover on yours you will see that they are built like a brick toilet.
Very tough little engines.

Glort,
I was thinking the same thing about the pressure lube system.
I wondered how they lubricated the valve train when the cylinder is angled upward.
Must be a little gear pump in there somewhere.

When is the load test video coming out?  ;D

Will be interesting to see how it handles loads and what it will pull.

Ahh ! that would be the sequel !  Yes ...
I am currently negotiating with the film crew and editing staff.
I hope to release "Tiny diesel 2" later in the fall.  ;)
