Listeroid Engines / Listeroid 20/2 heads
« on: April 02, 2014, 10:23:28 PM »
I am rebuilding a 20/2 and need a set (2) of heads. Anyone know where I might get a couple, or even one?
Thanks ... Ken Gardner

General Discussion / smog pump for boost
« on: January 10, 2012, 01:09:02 PM »
Not too long ago, on one of the few forums I attend, there was mentioned using a smog pump to boost intake on a gas engine. I would like to know more about such an idea but can't find the thread. Do any of you guys know how to do this?

General Discussion / Been gone too long.

Holy Catfish I have been gone a long time. I got involved on the Cogen Forum and abandoned you guys. Sorry. I was reminded of this forum upon visiting Chris who has rebuilt the old 16/1 I once used. What a fun day I had going to see it and work on "Tuning" it up. He did a great job of salvaging a burned up engine.
I'll stay in touch .....

Other Slow Speed Diesels / Changfa Head troubles
« on: January 23, 2007, 05:01:26 PM »
Just passing on info here, not complaning, the engine is a good one.
On a new Changfa 1115 Engine / Genset head was cracked under the exhaust valve spring, sort of hard to find. Anyway I recieved a new head. I installed it and after running for about 4-5 hrs the stud that holds the air cleaner in place broke loose from it's weld (inside the piece between the manifold and the air cleaner), rattled free from the top and traveled down through the intake manifold, under the intake valve, across the inside of the cylinder to the exhaust valve. It damaged both valves, bent a push rod and scared the piston a little. What Luck :( Yuck!! Anyway, I was able to put the valves from the cracked head into the new one and get her back up and running.
These are certainly tuff engines and are easy to work on.

Other Slow Speed Diesels / Changfa/Listeroid fuel consumption
« on: January 23, 2007, 04:56:54 PM »
I have just started using the Changfa 1115 engine with a 10kw ST Head to power our new house. Our power demands have risen some but not really very much. Anyway the old Listeroid GM-90, Satyajeet with a 12kw ST Head would run 4hrs on a gallon of fuel under 80-90% load. It ran at 765RPM, was set up for 750 but need a little extra to keep the voltage up under load.
The new Changfa uses more fuel, not sure just how much more but it is a noticeable amount. It is running at 1800RPM and powering a 10kw ST Head. Has anyone on this forum run one of these engines enough to get a fuel consumption rate on it?
Thanks ….Ken Gardner

Listeroid Engines / Chewed Up Idler
« on: June 06, 2006, 05:06:56 PM »
Oh NOOO!!  :o  I lost another idler gear in my engine; this is the second one. The engine seemed to running just fine, no indication that there was trouble brewing, then bam, it was suddenly out of time, then dead.  :'( The good part is there seems to be no damage to the cam gear. I actually didn't pull it out yet, just looking from the outside.
At any rate this is a 16/1 Saytajeet (GM90) and I would like to find out if there is a brass or bronze gear available for it. Other then a small inverter and old weak batteries this is our only source of power so it is imperative that we get her going ASAP.
In fact any ideas or opinions are helpful and welcome.
Thanks, You guys rock!!

Listeroid Engines / New to the forum
« on: March 24, 2006, 05:36:52 PM »
Wow!!! I have been thinking of starting a "Lister Forum" but now I have found this one, Great!!
I have a 16/1 GM powering a 12KW St Head. We live off grid and other then a small inverter this is our only source of power at this time. Our engine runs an average of 18hrs per day. Sometimes in the sub-zero temparures it will run 24/7 for days on end. The main fuel is WVO, We start and stop on diesel.
I'm excited to read through the forum, See ya around.
