Listeroid Engines / Accidents involving Listeroids?

As anyone heard of any serious accident involving Listeroids?

Listeroid Engines / Governor problem, help/comments welcome
« on: July 07, 2006, 09:39:30 PM »
Hello Guys,

Engine: Standard Listeroids 6/1

This is the case, adjusting the governor with a 150W load for 120V at 600RPM works fine.
Adding a 1500W load and the engine can't keep the speed, voltage drops to 100V. It's even worst when adding up to 3000W.

Adjusting the governor for 600RPM at 1500W works fine, dropping back to 150W and engine over-speeds...

My first thought is that something could be stock in the governor weights but it might be a spring issue.

Your experience and comments are welcome. Maybe someone had the same before.



Petteroids / Mini-Petter gibkey puller

Thanks to the board admin for creating the Petteroids section. I think Mini-Petter should deserve to be better studied. The need for low power but heavy duty application exist! What else would you use to power a small water pump or a 2.5KW generator head for continuous duty?

I'm looking for your ideas about making the best gibkey puller for Mini-Petters.  I have a few 4HP in stock and I need to take the flywheel apart in order to ship them in two packages (150lbs UPS limit, these are 185lbs). Shipping with UPS is a lot easier and cheaper than common carriers, especially when a border has to be crossed....

As you know, the small size of the key, the minimal room around it and the fact that the shaft doesn't extend outside the flywheel make the task difficult to do in a clean way.
