The generic Glyptal I used a few years ago is still OK.. no pealing, cracking etc. I just refurbished a mower deck 2 months ago. I sand blasted it, sprayed phosphoric acid on the bare metal, let set, washed and then applied Rust Bullet paint to the underside. I did not sandblast the underside (just the top of the deck). Anyway.. that rust bullet is some good stuff. NO grass sticks to the underside of the deck. I've used just about all the miracle rust paints out there. Por-15 is probably the worst of the batch. I've been using Rust Bullet for about 10 years or so and highly recommend it.

I had an issue once where I went to see a specialist for a shoulder injury. They wanted me to fill out a form saying that if I was ever late for an appointment that I would pay a fee because the doctor's time is valuable. I told them Sure, I'll sign that once the doctor signs a form saying if he is late for MY appointment that he would reimburse me for my time.. That went nowhere so I left.

I do cut doctors a lot of slack though because most people are complete morons and the doctors have to deal with them every single day.

Good to know. I have mine mounted onto an I-beam frame. I have the Almand pulley and will be running at about 1500 rpm.

RP48: When you took it apart was there much dirt/sand etc inside? Also, does it run smooth on that pallet or is there some vibration

Interesting. I had assumed that the first thing most people did when they got some veggie was to turn it in to biodiesel. Never quite understood why. My 86 Diesel Jetta owners manual says to just add gas in the winter to prevent jelling. I just use a hydrometer. A little more gas in the winter than in the summer works for me.

I'm just curious but why go through all the effort to take veggie oil and convert it to bio diesel? Why not just take veggie oil and add a small amount of gasoline so the specific gravity is that of diesel? What am I missing?

Generic it is. Just ordered 2 cans. Thanks guys for the input.

Not sure why there are 2 pics of the same thing. Here is the close up of the pad


Here's a close-up of my engine mount. It is a 200# mount. This cuts down the vibration significantly as well as the 100# mounts I tried. Once I hooked the gen head up (belt and tightened) the vibration increased.

Here is a general set up showing the gen head.  I was thinking of adding some isolation pads for the whole thing to set on. Any suggestions? Would adding pads to the feet of the generator do anything?

Much appreciated. Glyptal is running about $40.00 delivered were as the generic is about $12.00. I was all prepared to buy Glyptal if if was superior. I don't want to cheap-out on my gen build but it looks like the generic will do...Thanks again BruceM

I've got a fair amount of surface rust inside my ST head. Do I need to sand it like I was refinishing a car or just get it fairly smooth and clean?

Try "42"

Thanks, But I believe "42" is the answer to the question "What is the meaning of life"

I'm trying to register to post some pics and I have no F"_+%^# idea what a Universal Global Password is!

Glort, My setup is similar to yours. I'll try (again ) later today to get registered on the LEF gallery so I can post a few pics.

Getting ready to tear my ST gen head apart. Any recommendations as to using a generic "Red Insulating Varnish" as opposed to the real deal-Glyptal?
