Listeroid Engines / Re: Listeroid OWNER/ OPERATORS in the Upstate NY area??
« on: December 07, 2019, 02:58:44 PM »
Hi Hugh,  I got my PMG from George B. / Utterpower. As I remember, it was packed very securely in a steel box. It's working OK, load it with a 3 to 4kw, doesn't overheat, no brg. noise, just a mellow hum at 3600rpm. I have it wired for 120/240 volts. I try to balance the load when using 120v.. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it. Also have a couple of ST heads... 5 & 7.5kw. They also work fine, all I did to them was to change out the chinese brgs., and put in a better high quality diode bridge.
On another note, how did the Redstone manual work out for your friend? My Redstone is still running strong. Have it belted to my 7.5kw ST
head.I'm sure it could run a 10 or 12kw head with ease. Take care, Ron

Randybee1;   There is some vibration, but not severe enough to cause a problem. I run the engine about 1400rpm to achieve 1800 rpm/60hz at the generator. When I put a 4800watt on it, the engine smooths out.

I finally got my Redstone up and running. Have had it since 2009. I took it apart, cleaned and checked everything. Put about 2hrs. on it, then stored it. Moved it to my new pole building last week. Made a hardwood skid and mounted it and a 5kw ST head that I also have had since 2003. I plan on getting a 10kw head this winter to hook up to the engine. The engine starts and runs fine.

Hi Hugh, I have a manual for my Redstone. I could scan it & send it to you as a pdf document. Let me know if you still need it. Thanks, Ron

General Discussion / Valve Guide Orientation
« on: January 03, 2006, 08:24:53 PM »
Hello, does it matter where the oil hole in the bottom part of the valve guide is pointing? Removed my intake guide/ tappet to correct a rotation problem with my Metro 6/1. Didn't pay attention of where this hole was oriented, thanks, Ron
