Original Lister Cs Engines / Re: Water or steam injection
« on: February 17, 2020, 02:24:32 AM »
What ever method, make sure water cannot drain into the intake if something goes wrong.. Makes for real hard starting .

Steam may condense in the intake manifold

have a valve that simply bypasses the hydraulic motor
(in parallel with the motor, and valve normally closed to force all flow thru the motor)

Thanks

Keep a close check on your crankcase oil level.   If you are getting oil past the rings, it might be trying to run on that !!

Hey Mike, below your signature there's a link to the fb page of the installation of your 800 a/h 48V battery bank eight years ago.  I'd be interested to know if/how it is still serving & if you have any thoughts after almost a decade with it?  I figure there's stuff to learn

Cheers, Mike

Working very well.   Just finished 2 weeks of cloudy rainy yucch.  Just ran the 6/1 for 90 min a day, and slowly walked the batteries down.  Still had juice, and took 3 sunny days to fill back up. Awesome not being worried about ruining a set of lead acid batteries.  In 2011, Li was still a joke that caught fire every 3 years

I think the Messerschmitts were turbo-charged, but haven't googled to confirm that.


supercharged according to wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daimler-Benz_DB_605

The supercharger was fairly advanced for the era in that it used a barometrically controlled hydraulic clutch (fluid coupling) which allowed the system to automatically compensate for changes in altitude.

way down in the list of variants:
DB 625      A turbocharged DB605

Listeroid Engines / Re: DIY Short block
« on: January 29, 2020, 05:35:54 AM »
Maybe coming up with a 3D printing master data file, print your block in plastic, and use it as a lost wax style mold master.  All the proper blending of corners and reinforcement webs for mounting feet, sprues, vents and such could be cast right in.

Air cooled will be louder.  More power will be louder.

You might want to check you lube oil for fuel dilution, 
Ron.

Is there a way to check without sending a sample and $50 to a lab ?

Charging from a generator, you don't need 3 stage (or 2 stage) unless you are running unattended for long times. Set your bulk voltage and when the amps start to drop, you have started Absorb, for as long as you like.

It's in their printed manual, and I think petrol is gasoline, not kerosene or anything else.

Summer fuel = ordinary diesel
Winter fuel = winterized diesel for cold areas, less wax.

Manual was pretty clear, not for wax reduction, but for starting ease

Compression ratio rating is 21.5:1

Seems like a lot of gasoline/petrol for high compression.  It starts a little rougher than my 6/1 when it's frosty outside.
