Title: flywheel rpm
Post by: rosebud on January 06, 2018, 09:45:07 PM
Hi all...

This has been discussed, but more advice is always helpful...

I have a 6/1 Listeroid with a 23.25" OD, set of flywheels.

I had a problem with aluminum wiring in a 3kw st gen.. which is now back on line.
Picked up a 3600 rpm gen head from a friend on the forum.. as a back up. This gen seem happy making 110 volts with the 6/1 at 670 rpms.

My question... Does anyone operate their 6/1 in this rpm range?

regards, and thanks

670 rpm for the 6/1 is very close to original specification... no worries.
