Modern vehicles generally have a temperature sensor mounted in the top of the radiator, this is connected  to an electric fan so that your engine does not overheat while you are sat at the traffic lights. You might want to consider implementing a similar system.

Any modern vehicle I've seen has the temp sensor for the fan mounted in the radiator near the bottom or inlet hose, but not in the top.

There's a range of Amish thinking and behavior. Some are pretty fair mechanics and carpenters. Others can be complete hacks.
If they mostly treat their engines like they treat their horses, they probably can supply a pretty long income stream.

Interesting story. They are getting schooled.

Also if you are not in a hurry keep a watch on Marketplace and CL as they still pop up from time to time in new and slightly used condition. I  directed a buyer person to a new old stock 8/1 just last month that was on Marketplace and extremely cheap

I've bought 3 that way.

There is not much they can do about importing air compressors but IF they would find a way to call them not importable you would lose the engine, plus pay a fine, plus pay to have it destroyed.

Yea, but if they figure out the real goal it gets risky. I mean it's only a $45,268 fine. Well, plus $45,268 per day, so....

I'm just curious if big brother figures out the air compressor thing, if all involved would be in some hot water.

It's really about time someone's built a dynomometer for these engines. Not me tho.... ;D

How difficult would it be to do some testing and determine efficiency of each?
Power in VS power out?

Seems odd as temps in hydronic heating systems can get up to 180-190F in normal operation.

Mike, you might want to read my thread. There's a video of mine running in the posts. Both sound about the same at 1800
Might want to take the pan off & have a look?

I'll wager 20 Attaboy's it's oil pressure sensor or safety switch.
