Things I want to Buy / Wanted listeroid in Alaska
« on: September 03, 2019, 04:48:44 PM »
Haven't been on here much since everybody told me running WMO would ruin my engine LOL
Glad it worked out for you. I no longer live in texas, I now live in Alaska. I am looking for a listeroid and a 3 kw st type generator head for my landlord. His electric bill s 800 to 900 a month. You can run a roid here 24/7 @ 300 rpm to charge batteries on straight diesel for under 300 dollars LOL. I want to set up a power plant for him.
I am not too concerned about condition, he is a diesel mechanic and parts are easy to get.

Waste Motor Oil / Good to see what you have done with WMO
« on: December 07, 2014, 03:44:10 PM »
When I first came here everybody told me that I would ruin my engine running it on WMO and there was absolutely nothing on Youtube on it.. My how times have changed.

My health has declined and  don't get around much any more but I thought I would check into the site and contribute an update.

My engine is still running well. I was showing it to somebody the other day and I said it probably would not start because I had not started it in a couple of years. Assume makes an ass out of me LOL, it started up the first time the piston went past TDC. The fuel system has had WMO in it continuously for something like 8 or 9 years so it looks like my method of checking and treating the PH has worked fine. It also shows that WMO does not go bad like diesel and biodiesel do. Great for long term storage. I got an email from an old friend the other day. he had to pay huge amounts of money to dispose of a thousand gallons of bad diesel fuel that went bad. Now he has decided to take my advice and switch to WMO. Not only is it free, it is good forever.

Waste Vegetable Oil / Anybody tried this?
« on: April 25, 2008, 12:31:57 AM »

A fellow called me and somebody in the scientific comunity had told him about this. He said it burned with a nice blue smokeless flame.

Take some WVO and run it through a filter go get rid of the big stuff.

Add 20% water and put into a glass container. Shake well. Let stand for two days.

What is on the top layer is fuel.

I am guessing that it should still be tested for acidity. If this is good fuel, it sure is a lot simpeler than biodiesel and doesn't thicken with cold temperatures.

I know this is off topic of this thread, but can you please go into some detail on how you prepare your used motor oil prior to mixing/burning?  Specifically
Do you heat the injector line?
What micron level to you filter to?
I first run it through a Dieselcraft centrifuge filter that is said to take it down to 2 microns. I run 10 gallons through it for several hours, not just enough to get it through once. Then I have two Goldenrod 10 micron filters and the engine fil ter that came with the engine which I understand is also 10 muicron.
What is the max used oil to diesel ratio you have used without heating
3 gallons of diesel and 7 gallons of WMO.
What is the max used oil to diesel ratio you have used with heating
I do not heat it at all when I burn it in the engine. I do heat it while I am running it through the dieselcraft filter to get rid of moisture in the oil as well as the water I use to add the lye to counteract the acidity.
And most importantly what were the results?
No difference than running straight diesel. No black smoke and same amount of power. Also starts fine, just like straight diesel.

As free fryer oil becomes more scarce, UMO seems an obvious substitute.  Any insight you may have will be most appreciated by me and the group as a whole
I am still playing around with it and testing it out. So far though it looks pretty good.

You have just been sent a personal message by Stan on Lister Engine Forum.

IMPORTANT: Remember, this is just a notification. Please do not reply
to this email.

The message they sent you was:

Bob, maybe you haven't read some of the nasty, vicious threads that
have cropped up here on the forum in the past, but you should know
that they all started with one posting just like the one you just

I don't want to see any more nasty threads resulting in valued members
dropping out.  Perhaps you should re read you last posting and retract

So what you are saying is that you are too cowardly to say to me in front of all the members of the group is that it is ok to defame and undermine the US Government and it is not permitted to stand up for the US government which by the way, is the reason many members of this group do not speak German or Arabic and have the right to elections and a say in their government..

The USA does not just protect itself, it also stands up for every country and person in the world that is and wants to be free. Where would we all be if the USA had not stepped in against Hitler?

Unlike those of you who who were born in this country and too lazy to leave because you didn't like it here, I chose this country. I know what living under a Dictatership and Communism is realy like. My uncle was shot in the back helping my parents come to freedom. I will never abandon this country or democracy and stand aside and let it be defamed by lies.

I do not start Political threads because they are off topic But I will stand up for my country and what it stands for. Do not think for one minute I would not sacrifice this group for my country.

Now lets see if you are man enough to tell everybody in this group that Loving America is forbidden in this group instead of sending a private message that nobody knows about.

If you do that I would be more than happy to leave this group. I would not want my name associated with the filth that would see the USA or what it stands for be defamed by lies and deciet. If members are leaving because they want America to fail then I say good riddence to them. This is nto a political group anyhow. I their intrests are there and to defaming America, let them go where they are wanted.

Listeroid Engines / this is odd
« on: February 22, 2008, 04:25:55 PM »
Every once and a while my engine misses firing 3 to 5 in a row. Sometimes it slows down enouugh that you think it won't recover but it does. Once and a while it actually does shut down but starts rite back up.

At first I thought it was a fuel filter so I changed both of them. Then I thought it might be combination of the cold and dust in the oil in the linkage so i got some diesel fuel out and cleaned all the linkage. I have also checked valve clearance. I also run a constant load on it with an alternator charging batteries.

There is no rhyme or reason for when it does it. Mostly about 4 to 6 times an hour. I can not duplicate it either, just whenever it feels like doing it.

Listeroid Engines / intake rod rotating slower
« on: February 13, 2008, 04:08:17 PM »
My intake rod on my Ashwamegh rotates much slower than the exhaust rod.
I keep it lubed both at the bottom and in the cup at the top and the valve clearance has been checked.
I asume that as long as it still rotates, I have nothing to worry about, am I correct on that?

Any Idea why?

Speaking of valve clearances, Mine came with .008 written in the valve cover. I understand this is not the normal setting. Has anybody else gotten an engine with .008 valve clearances for both valves? What is the normal setting?

General Discussion / My stupid trick for today
« on: February 10, 2008, 04:28:35 PM »
Got up this morning to finish moving the fuel tank into the shed I built for Dilbert.

Got everything hooked up and bled the fuel lines and cranked him up.

Ran like crap. Had to hold the governor wide open just to keep him running.

Forgot to turn on the fuel.

Everything else / Cooling drum evaporation
« on: February 09, 2008, 01:50:35 PM »
Just a thought on cooling.

Quite a bit of water is lost from the cooling drum each day. With $150 in antifreeze evaporating away along with it, I was thinking, what if I was to put enough diesel fuel on top of the water to to make a coating, wouldn't that slow down the evaporation?

Years ago before ecology came into being, we used to put oil on standing water to keep mosquitoes out and it seemed to take forever for it to dry up.

Everything else / Interesting cooling system

General Discussion / Old Witte Down the road
« on: January 20, 2008, 03:19:56 PM »
At nights I occasionally hear a low rpm engine running someplace. Yesterday I finally tracked it down to an oil well about ¾ mile away. The part of Texas I am in has mostly gas wells, but this is an old oil well. The machinery is pretty rusty. I couldn't get close enough to see what engine is on it for sure, but with a pair of binoculars, it looks like a Witte. Man that thing sounds nice. I wanted a Witte to begin with until I found out how much a new one was. My property cost less LOL.

Everything else / More R.A. Lister history

I did a search on our newest member, CHEAPONLINEPHARMACY . His email account is new, it only shows up for three places in google, all forums that he signed up for today. He also signed up here today too. All his personal information is even spam.;u=00015742;u=00024469;u=2359
