Listeroid Engines / Research: Where did you put your flywheel weight?
« on: July 16, 2009, 06:36:50 AM »
Hello Gentlemen,

I thought it might be interesting and informative if we took a poll of where everyone that has balanced their engines, had finally put the extra weight and how much. If enough of us participate, it could possibly show a pattern and help us better understand the nature of these engines.

If you could, please reply with the following information based on the diagram below:

1. Engine Make and Size (Metro 6/1, CDM 12/2 etc.)
2. Crank Counter balance on Flywheel; Yes or No
3. Weight applied to Flywheel A and its locations (for example 3 lbs between 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock.)
4. Weight applied to Flywheel B and its locations (see above instructions)

Now, if you don't remember the exact weight, that's okay, I'm still interested in location and a rough estimate of how much weight if possible.

Now, as some of you know, I'm just beginning the process of balancing my engine and the results of this poll could prove very useful to me. But it could also prove useful to everyone in refining their balance and improving performance.

If you think this is a waste of time, well let me know, but I have a theory festering in my noggin that there could be inherent design flaws in certain engines and if we're able to track down certain patterns for said engines, we could save some poor blokes allot of heartache.

My regards,

Hey Guys,
Below is a link to a web page that shows my Listeroid gen set experience. It's not done yet, and never will be if I have anything to do with it! ;D

My first goal for this system is for emergency backup and peace of mind in case the sh*t ever hits the fan! After that, I'm going to work towards an alternative power system consisting of a battery bank, solar panels, inverter, etc.

I may not have done as thorough of a job of prepping my 6/1 for service as some of you, but I think I've done enough for now.

I've learned allot these past few months from this forum and I'd like to thank all of you for sharing by doing the same.

Please feel free to post you comments after review (like you really need an invite for that!) :D

My regards,
