It’s a given that engine quality varies across the board no matter who you get one from. What does that leave you with? According to most it’s the availability of spare parts and the know how to get things right.

 I’ve dealt with Mr. Atul and you could not ask for better communication and cooperation in doing business with anyone. The same can be said of George at Utterpower.  As I said before what does that leave you with …how about knowledge at your finger tips? That is something harder to define and even more difficult to come by.

 I’m sure you’ve been to the Utterpower website… there is tons of knowledge to be had…what value does that have?  If you don’t have an Utterpower CD then get one. It will be money well spent.

After devouring everything on the CD then decide who is it that you want to spend your money with….the cost of the engine actually pales in comparison to the time, work and effort you  put into it… none-the-less the longevity you’ll get out of it… if you yourself are as capable  of maintaining it as you need to be.  I bought my engine from Utterpower…I had no surprises mainly because I was well informed as to what I was getting into before hand.

Most people go through life spelling words only one way...it is up to some of  us with creative minds to offer alternatives...if they don't see the genius in that, there is little else we can do for them....   ;)

Come to think of it most conversations did revolve around fishing and moose hunting ...what's not to love about that....
Is it just because their clocks are set a half an hour off from the rest of the world  that we have Newfie Jokes....or did we miss something?

I was one of those diverted to Gander on 911….the hospitality was absolutely astounding.  There were thousands of people who arrived within hours to an airport that was accustomed to seeing hundreds of people. 

The emergency action plan implemented was good and it worked. The out pouring of help, food and accommodations from the community was incredible. We were on a military charter aircraft with a fair amount room and mobility. We spent almost the first day on board unable to leave and with no visuals on what had happened stateside…only radio info...it would take a while to process all the people off the 30 to 40 aircraft. Next to us on the tarmac was a packed 747…lots of people… 30 or so small children… no diapers…. toilets full….no contact with loved ones….no information….some people lost it. They weren’t in a foreign country they were in a foreign world.

On the international flights many people did not speak English and communication/understanding sketchy at best…was very difficult….rumors ran rampant.

After we left the aircraft we went to a Church where parishioners brought us bedding and pillows from their homes.  I had the first moose chili in my life.   Finally on the morning of the 13th we saw video of what had happened…

 I’d been to Gander for a site survey in the early 90’s and I’ll be back there again someday as a civilian…but nothing will ever be like the experience I had that September…

I'm in NY, just south of Niagara Falls...where Lake Erie dumps all the snow...

Sorry I can't add much to removal of the old pins but this could also be a viable alternative to pounding new pins into place.

Listeroid Engines / Re: Gib Key Installation???

I wish I could post pictures…I’d put up a scan of a page from the Standard Handbook of Fastening and Joining.
Anyway… Quote “Plain and Gib Head Taper Keys have a 1/8” taper in 12””  The Listeroids use a Gib Head Taper Key…but be aware this is in a US book and the Listeroids are Indian renditions of an old British design…YMMV

Well, if the planet is the warmest its been in the last 5000 years. What caused it 5000 years ago??

5000 years ago?  That's easy...it's George Bush's fault... ::)

This is really very encouraging…if a “doorstop” from e few years back can run for 7200 hours (albeit with some massaging) and is still capable of making juice…the current (excuse the pun) generation of heavies (which has gotta’ be more copper) with good bearings and  diodes should run till the cows come home…


Everything else / Re: Painting the inside of a lister

It is older stock…that’s probably why the low price…I’ve not tried it yet but if it does clog then I’ll pop open the cans and put it in a spray gun….

Edit: The cans I have are dated MFD 2/95 and do have what looks like a Government stock number on them...

While at the starter/alternator/motor repair shop picking up an item for a neighbors tractor I quizzed the guy behind the counter about bringing in some of the ST head components to get “professionally” dipped/baked/sealed that I assumed a “professional” electric motor place like that would do …he looked at me funny and showed me a can of spray paint…that was the extent of what they did…
I can spray paint myself… thank you…. :)
