Petteroids / Generator identification
« on: May 23, 2021, 01:26:50 AM »
I'd appreciate any comments regarding identification of this generator. It belongs behind a Lister-Petter LPW3A which I presume means around 30 horsepower at 1500 rpm.  There are no identification plates on the generator but I believe it might be Australian. I understand it spent its previous life powering a big coldroom on a property near Mount Isa in north west Queensland. It has a common or garden variety Australian double 15 amp 240v GPO that looks to be original, and a 35 amp three phase 415v outlet that appears to be a Jerry-rigged fitment since only three wires are connected. Presumably whoever fitted the three phase outlet didn't bother to find a proper 32 amp single phase outlet.

I've uploaded tiny and hence not particularly clear photos to LEF gallery

Petteroids / Lister Petter LPW3A rebuild

Is there anyone here with experience in dismantling / rebuilding a Lister Petter LPW3A ?

I have a few issues that are not covered in the service manual and would appreciate input from someone who has been there done that.

Presumably all LPW series engines are essentially similar (apart from the number of cylinders), indeed one service manual covers the lot.
