Listeroid Engines / Re: Does water flow around 6/1 posts?
« on: October 07, 2020, 04:08:56 AM »
Well, I had a 1947 John Deere "B" that used lead washers under the head stud nuts to keep water out of the valve cover and thusly the engine oil, and the studs had lasted fifty years at that point with no ill effects.  I did lose a brass pushrod tube that flooded the engine with coolant though. I was also thermosiphon and the coolant requirements were basically just clean water.
Your mileage  may vary.

Yes Glort, I plan to plumb the thing in with the woodboiler's storage tank. I figure that if the lights go out, I might as well get all the bang for my buck that I can. Besides, I scored a couple of super cool antique brass and copper shell and tube exchangers, I wouldn't want them to go to waste.

Things I want to Buy / Re: Wanted listeroid in Alaska

Hey Bob! Good to hear from you! I had kept tabs on you and was aware that you had gone 'way up North, I think we had even corresponded after your move.
You seem to be the Guru of slow and slower when it comes to engines and getting by with less.
 At any rate Try Gary at Diesel Electric Service, dieselgman here on the forum. He is a Lister dealer has a place in Kansas and a place in Alaska. He is an importer of listeroids, and I think he still has a few Dursley originals in rebuildable shape.
Good luck!
Ron in Tennessee.

Here is his website with contact info          http://diesel-electric.us/

Sorry!  The Great Walla Walla Xing Dong is a hopper cooled Xing Dong S1100 driving an ST12
My avatar is a tiny picture of it.
For some silly reason it just reminded me of the old song about the Witch Doctor( oo EE oo AhAh walla walla ding dong) and I appropriated
and bastardized it :o
Glort, my 1115 has one of the conversion plates.  I plan to plumb it in with a shell and tube heat exchanger.

Hi Casey, hopper cooled engines Redstone, Changfoids, and just about all the old Antique Hit and Miss engines use evaporation
to cool, the water actually boils in the hopper, so they run at close to 212 degrees. The Lister(oids) circulate coolant like more modern
things cars, farm tractors, trucks and the like.  The only downside to hopper cooling, my opinion only, is that you have to babysit the things. During power outages here when I run The Great Walla Walla Xing Dong, I am up and out every hour or two filling the hopper, and just generally checking on things. It is just not a start it and forget it proposition.
Hope this helps.

I thought (oh ow brain pain) that Redstones had only one flywheel, or one small and one large or something?
Never mind I have probably drifted away into an alternate reality or something.
Ron.

PS. Yes I have lost my mind, I went and watched a video and the Redstone does indeed have a pair of flywheel that look to be nicely matched.
  Now if I can just figure where that other brain fart I had came from :o
