Title: PETTER - PAZ1 - New project
Post by: sirpedrosa on August 16, 2018, 12:51:38 AM
Greetings my good fellows

I'm starting this new  thread here because I did not find another more precise to make known the progress of this new project.

I took this afternoon to see if my "new" PAZ1 could be resurrected.

The bad news: fuel tank with a huge hole.

To do: disassemble the fuel line; improvise a temporary line (see photo - final version); bleed (+320 crank turns) the bubbles never stopped ... and finally it is alive.
Next step: disassembly, sandblasting, straightening plates, primer and paint.

Difficulties today: lack of English spanners. Once more improvising.

I'll post the project advance.

Best regards to all
Pedrosa

At some point I realized that transpiration wasn't enough to fulfil the task, therefore I took a break to inspiration (see foto). Please note the important is that I cannibalized my 10 year ago hidrolizer project, because it has the BSP right to fit the injection pump.
Fell free to watch the video.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dhZgPIi0LQkGf44bzjQNN_2lnCSRJu4g/view?usp=sharing (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dhZgPIi0LQkGf44bzjQNN_2lnCSRJu4g/view?usp=sharing)

See you later.

Welcome sirpedrosa, and congratulations on the new project; considering it's age I would call it in great original condition.

I too am a fan of the PAZ1, and it is certainly in better condition than any of the ones I have, especially the sheet metal and fuel tank.

What are you planning on installing it on?

Hi  Willw

By now it's only to make it pretty. After i'll figure something to it to run.

This afternoon I changed the oil - there was some sludge in the bottom of sump.

3 lts (metric conversion) of good mineral oil and it runs smoother.

I want to strip it down, but i need the workshop manual. I all ready ask help with this task.

Please, if you have it in pdf format, send it.

Best regards
Pedrosa

NOT very tight if it's a flare fitting .   

A compression fitting with ferrule is not as reliable. Ferrules can never be reused once they have been compressed

Finger tight, and then just a tiny bit more.  The shape of the fitting is what seals, not the torque of the nut.  Too tight and you ruin the fitting.

Again, it's the shape of the metal-metal interface that seals, not jamming the nut on super tight.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flare_fitting
https://www.copper.org/applications/plumbing/cth/cth_8flrdjts.html
The IP creates high pressure, much like brakes in a automobile.   
Steel brake lines also use this sort of fitting, but since it's harder steel, it's more difficult for DIY at home, often it's easier/safer/reliable to but the pre-shaped line.

Hi Mike90045

Many thnks for reply, but is not that torque I mean. It's the (20) tighten in the body (1). It took some strength to unscrew it, I say quite a bit.

the body BRYCE is Aluminium.

Now I need the toque limit to tight.

Hi Everyone

I saw a good deal (for parts) on the net of another PAZ1 - and I buyed it (same price of first, but lacking starting handle and exaust silencer, but... better fan housing, fuel tank, piping and a double V pulley)

Some cleaning, new oil, bledding, a dozen o crank turns and it fireed up.

Now I'm this cross, I want to go with both along - but this one when it reach the "normal" duty RPM starts to shake.

Good advice will be very aprecciate.

I'm reading an interesting book at the moment about the British aircraft industry from 1945 till the mid 60's when it was basically  finished, lost the plot.  The Petter family, who made your engine apparantly also started the Westland Helicopter company.  Teddy Petter became English Electric's chief designer, and was pretty much totally responsible for designing the English Electric Lightning, one of Britain's most successful planes of all time.  Can't remember offhand, but from take off to 50 000ft took something like 2 minutes.  Could only stay airborn for 40 minutes, then needed to find a tanker or land fast.

Hi Dax021

I had made some digging on Petter's history, and there are several inventors and engeniers that made some spinoffs to their first company.

As you see Lister has clones in India, and so on. It's the price of time.

Correction to my earlier post.  The Lightning would take 2 minutes from "brakes off" to 40 000ft using full afterburners, then only had 15 minutes of fuel left

Hi Bob

Good to hear from you.

That part is a long time ago out of stock, and I subscribed for 'Back-in-stock' notification also. There is a similar on https://www.heating-parts.co.uk/EOGB-MINI-BOWL-FILTER-BIO-1-4-BSP-EQUIVALENT-TO-18489/product/231352/231352/

By now I want to spare as much as possible original parts.

Keep in touch.

Hi Pedrosa, sorry to be out of contact for a while, been busy visiting doctors and trying to sue insurance companies.

You could look at second hand pneumatic lubricators, old ones have glass bowls and are designed for a rubber seal with a locking assembly externally. Stay away from modern lubricators which are made of poly carbonate and degrade with time.

Hi Pedrosa

How about on of these?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SINGLE-WATER-SEPARATOR-ASSEMBLY-1-2UNF-FUEL-FILTER-GLASS-BOWL-WITH-DELPHI-HDF296/292041206904?epid=1269257951&hash=item43ff032c78:g:fnsAAOSw9GhYmcoe:rk:7:pf:0

It will keep the orginal look, they've been around for years, as a CAV 296, they can be a bit fiddly to change if they are in a tight location, for you that shouldn't be a problem.

Best of all the elements are one of the cheapest, less than 4 each if you shop around.

Hi Everyone

Winter has arrived, the cold holds up better than the rain.

I want to wish, first of all, a good Christmas to all.

Regarding the fuel tank cap, and filter bowl, Jim Perkins has been the best and just already sent it (did you know that the oldest partnership in the world is between Portugal and GB, with Port wine?)

Now at the time of a Petter, there are two, which one was for parts (no compression, when I bought it, maybe carbon in valve seat), but as after a vapors of wd40, new oil, bleed, half a dozen turns of crank and started well - only upon reaching the rotations of work was beginning to vibrate.

Dismanteling the big end is badly scored. See attach... and the measurements taken.

Only fly wheel left... I have do make a gibkey puller... I already made a 17/32 from a 13 spanner.

The muffler was missing, but one was already ordered from Station.Eng. Parts, UK, and I have to buy a crank for this, which also did not have ...

The younger one needs more work... fan casing needs welding, fuel tank needs welding... and metal

Things are going... no need to rush.

The Lister 12/2... I have to go get the block out of the shack, and proceed with the repair ... will take some copper ...

Hi Everyone

Just an Update: One more pair of sheels to buy (there it goes two bottles for the white metal). Thoses ones are 030U/S.

So far pistons and cylinders are clean, with no major out bound clearences...

Pull out flywhells seems to be the harder task. After that a good clean, primer, paint and put all back again.

Hello people

For everything there is always a first time, and this time was the acetylene torch to make a large patch.

I had in mind that things do not always go the way we want ... but.

With the necessary care I made a few stitches to fix the patch, but from a certain point it began to buckle, and some holes in the time of closing ... opened more.

It was not very aesthetic, but the biggest problem was not getting it tight. The micro holes (with compressed air and detergent) never stopped.

Stays the experience - less one of red - and look for another tank that has no holes.

Well, there's the cap that was chrome-plated at zero cost.

Things are going ...

As a last resort with the tank, if you're down to a few pinholes which simply won't braze, you could try soft solder. Just be careful rubbing it back before paint in case you open them up again!

I once tried to braze an old petrol tank for my Vauxuhall Senator - well, Dad did, as he could braze, I've never tried. It was all going OK-ish, except the water in the tank was sucking the heat away so fast we were struggling to get the braze to stick; accidentally let the water level go too low and Poof! Tank expanded like a balloon, and the flame out of the filler neck burnt a perfectly circular hole in Dad's jumper!  :laugh: :laugh: We were lucky it wasn't any worse... the tank was toast, though; not only was it now severely misshapen, but the explosion opened up about a million new little holes... Had to buy a new tank!

JBweld (putty or regular) or steel filled epoxy of other brands is also effective and durable.
The tank for my CS is a 15 gallon drum with JBwelded fittings, ABS filler neck. 10 years of bio and dino diesel so far.  JBweld is only used as a filler/sealer for mechanically secure bulkhead type plumbing on the wet (bottom) fittings.  Tacky but it does work reliably.

I would leave it as it is. you don't need to use it every day, so most of the time it will be in the way, particularly if you have a small workshop - like most on here, Butch, Ed Dee you know who you are!

I would consider making a fixing on the bench so that it can be quickly mounted, firmly, for use and leave it at that. Doubtless, in the future you'll be modifying it for a one off task anyway!

There are 4 'rods', assuming they are only 16mm, the nominal working load, in tension, is around 800 kg each, multiply by 4 = 3.2 tonnes safe working load, they ain't going to get broke by that 5 tonne Chinese jack, even allowing for uneven loading.

If there's a bigger jack involved only one will let go, after it's bounced off the ceiling there won't be too much drama! re drill for 20mm studding and try again.....

Hi JD

16mm 8.8 steel.

is just to remove valve guides and bushes, bearings - nothing that needs brute force.

it's just a 5-ton jack, if I need more, I'm going to a bigger workshop.

For now it will do just fine.

BR
VP

PS: Stef got the picture. Stef, it's 8.8 steel rods... and the ceiling over the bench is 1,9m on top is a cement floor where I throw materials, and other stuffs ... and where I keep the pieces already painted and wrapped up so they do not get damaged. So no drama at all!

Belt, braces, and a bit of string,
Any doubt left, add a safety pin.

Having had a large portion of my career at sea, the word 'preventer' is never very far from my mind when setting up something that is going to cause me untold grief when I cock it up in my usual cavalier fashion.

NASA came up with 'fail safe' and 'fail soft' quite a few years back, deep sea sailors had been doing it for centuries.

Finally the hydraulic press gained legs and feet.

All that remains is to fix the top of jack, and the extractor stud.

I preferred to give it legs to stand in a corner of the workshop, and also to get more height so I could work (I'm not getting younger).

Hello everyone

Let me then publish the recipe:
Hydraulic jacks> = 5ton.
50cm UPN/E 140 (table);
50cm UPN/E 120 (top);
43cm UPN/E 100 (crosspiece to fix the jack, adjust the measurement when necessary);
4 * 10cm of tube 20mm for the guides of the crosspiece (attention to the tolerances in the drilling of the beams);
2 * 6,5cm in steel L 45mm / 50mm, to fix the crosspiece to the guides;
140cm in steel L 45mm / 40mm for the shelf (50 * 20cm), works like the knees of the legs, and serves to have brass and the various push rods);
2 * 50cm in steel L 45mm / 50mm for foot locking;
2 * 50cm UPN/E 65 ... 80, for the feet;
4 threaded rods of 16mm, steel 8.8, for the press;
2 * 16mm threaded rods, 4.8 steel (normal), to cut in half and make the legs;
8 unions 16mm, 4 to join the rods and 4 to the table;
N 16mm washers;
28 to 32, 16mm nuts;
12 cm of 40mm steel rod for the extractor, turned and with 8mm thread for screwing in the crosspiece, underneath the jack;
2 or 4 springs to raise the crossbar with the jack, with 2 hooks to the top;
N 6mm bolts and nuts to fix the guides on the crossbar, and the fixing of the springs on the guides;
3 * (10cm * 5cm * 3mm) of steel plate to fix the top jack head, or other such invention;

Attention that the welds can shrink the measurements between guides!

Then just paint ...

My drilling was centered at 45cm * 6.5cm, but be aware that it was due to material limitations, because the steel was seized from debris that went to the scrap.

For imperial measures adapt ...

have a good job.

Cheers.

Hi Everyone

I hope everyone is healthy, especially Bob, who is a concern among us.

The hydraulic press is made, there is already the shelf and the extractor pin, and I have already inserted the valve guides into the Petter's head.

The engine of the reaper is already in the closing phase, and the critical phase only highlights the fine tuning of the valves tappets, to get the correct gap.

Good week.

Finally we have some developments in dismantling the Petter's - I'll say more that it's a step ahead and a step and a half back.

Made the conical wedge to remove the gibkeys, one gib broke, and the other took off well.

Now I'm following Jim Perkins's advice, I've removed the flywheel with the crankshaft, to drop end of crank on a concrete floor so this will allow flywheel mass to move... he said!

Let's see ... Meanwhile the sump and the oil pump is already clean.

Cheers

I don't know if it will help, but you could try using 5% ATF (car steering fluid) in acetone as a penetrating fluid. I think I read about it on here.

Keep putting plenty on, load the 20 tonne jack up as much as you dare, and then pack ice around the shaft. keep hitting it with a hammer (not to hard, don't damage anything) as well.

Cheers
Stef

It was soaked with ATF for mounths!

Hi VP, sorry not to have been in touch but I`ve been in hospital.
Stef is right, if you can cool the shaft and heat the flywheel it will come apart. You could mount it in your new hydraulic press. If all else fails you could buy a pipe freezing pack from you local plumbers store, this should get the shaft down to around minus 20 degrees centigrade. If that does not work, run a large bead of weld around the outside of the flywheel boss with an electric arc welder, do it both ends of the boss. You will have to grind the weld material off later but who cares how you got it off as long as it is off!

Hello Bob, is that hand recovering? Everything went well, The floor had the card board, that piece of truck spring blade with 2cm thickness, and above a piece of MDF for cushion.

Now it is begin to remove the parts from the basket, primary paint, and then enamel MBG. Cutting paper joints, puting screws...

One day at a time.

Hello everyone

Let me give you a brief summary of the last parallel tasks I have been involved with:

1st PAZ1 - it's being a headache, gibkey broken with the wedge, 2nd attempt with threaded rod and it jumped out. Now I urgently need a 5 / 16BSF socket to remove the crankshaft (main bearing housing).

To be continued...
Title: Re: PETTER - PAZ1 - New project

2nd PAZ1 - was destined to give parts to the 1, but in the end was in better condition, and was easier to disassemble. Now it's almost set up to work.

Nothing like some pics.

Post by: ajaffa1 on May 09, 2019, 10:08:31 AM
Well done VP, very nice pics of how to remove a damaged gib key. I have always suspected that the heat shock from the welding process helps to loosen the stuck key. I have used the same process myself with good results. I have also found that by applying a constant tension on the gib key over a prolonged period helps, especially if you can apply a little heat.

You are lucky to have a donor engine and are quite right to pick the best parts from each to produce one good one. Please try to ensure that, unless you are fitting new bearings and bushes, you need to fit the old bushes/bearings in the correct position for to original shafts. Failure to do this is not going to be a disaster but will result in a short period of wear until the old, non matching parts bed into one another.

Keep up the good work, I think you will beat me to first smoke but it was never a race!

As promised, I made 2 videos (the cameraman is amateur, but the intention is that it counts).

I had already tested it once, but it knocked a bit, so I added a paper shim (I do not have steel ones) of 20/100.

In the first video I forgot to open the fuel cock, and it starved: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jJCQIi17ujkIfuUqhE51UvSfqdjhDiMB/view?usp=sharing

but in the second video as you see it is softer: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JwQe7dYk_enDMLN2t6SFZbftOpz-fpHg/view?usp=sharing

The injection point is more finely tuned, and this can be seen forcing it to rotate at very low speed, without stopping

Hi VP, I don`t recognize that generator however it is in a very similar condition to one I am working on. Mine is a 32 volt DC generator with an integral starter motor.

We both have the same problem with cloth covered rubber insulation having broken down. I will be striping the cloth insulating tape of each coil and soldering new wires in place before recovering the coils and varnishing them. I will probably start doing this tomorrow and will post some photos showing how it is done.

Here are a couple of photos of the coils as they are now.

Title: Re: PETTER - PAZ1 - New project
Post by: ajaffa1 on September 12, 2019, 09:22:27 AM
Hi VP, the figures look good. The two things you do not want to see are 0 ohms (burned out with a short circuit) and infinity or open circuit (burned out with broken wires)

Looks like you got lucky so far.  Been thinking about that generator and the letters PL, could it be that it is LP for Lister Petter? As far as I know neither Lister or Petter ever made their own generator heads, instead they bought them from outside sources like Brush, Markon and Dunlite but I might be wrong.

I do not know what nationality have that sort of electrical outlet, some countries in Europe have similar outlets. I am hoping it is not an American unit as it will be 110 Volt rather than 240 volt as used in Europe. If it is a 110 volt unit it may be possible to convert it to 240 volt depending on how it is wired. I would recommend that you visit your local airport or supermarket/hardware store and purchase an international electrical travel adapter and find out which one fits.

I will be starting to renovate the coils on my little generator tomorrow and will post some pics and info as I go.

Post by: sirpedrosa on September 12, 2019, 11:36:46 AM
Hi Bob

Butch give also a hand, and he says the unit seem like a WINPOWER, and searching further I conclude for his opinion.

This unit have several hours of work - says seller - and is 220V, or 2*110, because wires of stator are connected serial.

It was direct connected to a Hatz engine, hand I think it will be a 3000rpm.

Lets see how it goes.

Cheers

Title: Re: PETTER - PAZ1 - New project
Post by: ajaffa1 on September 12, 2019, 01:39:42 PM
Well done VP, yes it will run at 1500 or 3000 for 50 HZ or it will run 1800 or 3600 for 60 HZ, I am guessing at 3 KVA continuous but will cope with 5 KVA for short periods. The voltage regulation is via the bridge rectifier, as the current demand increases the current being fed through the field windings also increases thus regulating the voltage, the voltage stability is governed by the accuracy and response of the governor on the driving engine. It is possible to replace the bridge rectifier with an automatic voltage regulator to improve the output stability. If you want to run sensitive electronic devices I would recommend an AVR, if you want to run lights and power tools don`t worry about it.

Please pass on my best wishes to Butch.

Title: Re: PETTER - PAZ1 - New project
Post by: ajaffa1 on September 13, 2019, 01:17:28 PM
Hi VP, I started on rewiring the 60 year lighting plant today. The cloth covered rubber insulation on the wires has perished and they all need to be replaced. I am hoping your new generator head is in better condition but if not I am hoping that my approach to this will help you.

First thing to understand is that this unit has four sets of coil windings one set for north/south pole for generation and a second set for turning the generator into a starter motor. The set I have been playing with today is the starter motor windings. They are solid copper windings with a cloth insulation. When these were made the cloth would have been in perfect condition, they would have wound the coil around a former and then soldered on the external wires as needed. The coil would then have been tied up tight, with cloth, before the whole thing was immersed in varnish. Back in the 1950`s this would probably have been a shellac based varnish.

This process ensured good insulation between the coil and also fixed them in place to ensure no movement or chafing between the layers, under load. So what can we do to restore them without having to send them for an expensive rewind? The first thing is to check the resistance between each end of the coil. We do not want to see either 0 ohms or infinity ohms, in between is good.

The second job is to very carefully remove the cloth covering that holds the coil together, this will give access to the soldered connections between the solid copper core and the more flexible interconnection wires. Now cut out the damaged wires and replace them using crimp connectors with the plastic covering removed. (be sure to clean the wires before trying to solder them) Crimp them tight and then solder them in place, now cover the joint with heat shrink, I like to use two layers of heat shrink

The next job is to put some surgical tape around any part of the coil that has movement in it, now immerse the entire coil assembly in polyurethane varnish, let it soak right in before removing and allowing to dry, brush off any excess varnish to avoid drips/runs and etc. Leave to dry.

Next is to wrap the coil to make sure it cannot come apart. I have tried all sorts of insulation and cloth tapes and have found that Micropore surgical tape is second to none; it is cheap, strong, porous, self adhesive and readily available but most important of all the adhesive does not dissolve in polyurethane varnish. Once you have wrapped your coil with Micropore tape it`s back for another swim in varnish, pull it out, brush off any drips or runs and let it dry for a day or two.

When done it should look something like the photos below.

Hi Bob

You are indeed a handyman. I'm light years from you. This only shows you have had a hard life, but overcome everything.

My last improvements, were search deep int the net to get every info available.

I'm writing to WINCO (USA), that acquired WINPOWER (quote), but documentation lost (as always, because nobody look at it as a asset).

As you can see in pics my stator winding are shorted, dispite showing resistence.

Next days will give a visit to a winding shop nearby.

I'll keep posting some news.

Stay safe

Hi All

updating: just received age of the gen head from WINCO (Bob Baron, Service Technician) saying: "The serial number said it was made in 1973 and that was the model.  Other than there is no data available."

Not bad so far...
VP

PS: He says the model is BM2B2-B, but I think it will be a earlier  model, like 2nd pic, a FM model.

Well done VP, looks like your detective work is starting to pay off, lets hope one of our American cousins has a service manual hidden away.

Hi  Bob

They send several, but their site got plenty available. See here: https://www.wincogen.com/wp-content/uploads/PD/

Nice weekend to all.

Hi Gentle

One more step to the gen head.

"A good brushing and cleaning gives a new life".

Happy day for everyone.

Hi Everyone

While the morning was cool I went for a walk in the garden to pull out the sweet potatoes ... not bad for a 10m row. The other have to wait maybe one or two more weeks.

After that, pressing new bearings in gen's rotor, and primer paint in some bits.

Have a sunny day.

Well done VP, looks like the crops are going as well as your engine rebuilds.

I have been busy restoring old generator coils, nothing wrong with the coils just the insulation on the wires coming out of them. Got the coils back in the generator today, looking good so far.

Hi Bob

Just passing by to say you make the factory, that produced your gen head, red of shame, about the quality of your work.

Words for what? pics are enough evidence!

Have a safe day.
VP

Ps: next Thursday I will help my parents to harvest grapes to make wine.

Hi Everyone

Gen head is back from shop. Now it will get paint and a custom pulley, to make 220v/50hz @ 1500 rpm engine with a 5in double V pulley.

Take a look of the shop job... They put a new bridge. They charged me 80, lets see if it worth!

See shop page here:  https://ebalvelos.wordpress.com/

Hi Everyone

"Man shall not live on bread alone..." but have some sweet potatoes too (my way).

Last row pulled this morning: 10m - 46,8 kg (~100 pounds), next year it will be more, but first they have to be planted.

FWIW, making plans to connect PAZ1 to gen head.

Have a nice weekend

Dax, and all members

We have - all of us - 3 social attributes. Education (parents to sons), instruction (teachers to students), and formation (what we do with education and instruction, intrinsic to ourselves).

Now make a combination 3 to 3 of this atributes.

I'd rather to have the best 3 of them: good education, good instuction, and good formation, but...

I'm just human, and I can not full fill, every hour, those 3 attributes.

I've my sins - evereone has their sins - our limitations.

Don not blame me - at this hour - about my limitations - it will be not fair.

Just my thoughts.

Post by: sirpedrosa on November 03, 2019, 03:53:13 PM
Hi All

Gen head is done. It only need to fit a pulley of right size to give 220V*50Hz, with the PAZ1 @ 1500rpm.

Cheers
