Waste Motor Oil / Used Hydraulic Oil
« on: December 01, 2022, 04:05:11 PM »

Has anyone had any experience burning waste hydraulic oil (or a blend of gasoline and hydraulic)?
I came across a few forums where people said they were running it in their older diesel trucks.
I wondered if anyone has tried it in their stationary diesel.
Theoretically I would assume it's just a cleaner version of waste motor oil since there would be no combustion deposits or acid buildup.

My guess, and based on the size of the generator head ...
Model S195
HP 12
RPM 2200

The speed may be ok for that engine.
Many of the twins run at 1000 rpm.

Good Luck 32Coupe, (and others)

Power may be disrupted for several days. Water is the big concern. High storm surge and much rain predicted.
This is why we prepare in advance.
Let us know how you make out.

Any update?
Also, have you considered running waste vegetable oil ? The fumes are not as offensive.

Listeroid Engines / Re: QUIET Exhaust - Listeroid - HOW?
« on: September 13, 2022, 03:10:58 AM »
I know old thread.. Veggie did you make it quiet?  Simpleset and easiest way is mount the exhaust outlet well above a persons ear height.  Maybe two good size mufflers then head the exhaust up side of house 7-10 ft. Works like a charm..  the reason big big generators do it this way.  Outlet above ear height makes a huge difference. No concrete or foam boxes just pipe and mufflers


Yes, it's super quiet. Have a look at the YTube video links above.
The project turned out very well.

"I can get A 4'' diameter round by  3/4'' or 1'' thick piece of steel. would have to lathe material out on backside deep enough for the flywheel nut. Then bore a 1'' hole . Then I could weld in a piece of 1'' diameter shaft stock with the keyway already cut in it.  Does that sond like an easier way to build a stub shaft?"

Keith71, yes that is exactly how my stub shafts were made (with help from a machinist).
Once the shaft is inserted into the flange plate with a press fit, weld the shaft to the plate on the inside AND the outside of the plate.
Then place in a lathe and skim any parts that are out-of-round due to welding.
If you want to end up with a shaft diameter of 1", perhaps make the raw unit using 1.25" shafting so there there is some material to skim in a lathe if there is a wobble.

Hi keith71

The R175 engine has an internal gear pump and pressure lube system.
I tapped into the location where the metal oil screen used to reside.
Blocked it off, and diverted to the flow externally.

Regarding the little grey control box, it's a Scepter 4x4x4 inch conduit box from Home Depot / Lowes.
I wired in 3 circuits.
1] Push button starter switch
2] Double pole/double throw throttle actuator direction switch
3] Single pole toggle for coolant pump on/off

It was a bit tight fitting that into the 4x4 box as you can see in this picture....
