Listeroid Engines / Re: Flywheel energy

Yes generator shaft weight works in
In the same manner.
The SOM Lister units used a combination of crankshaft extra weight and generator shaft weight for good reason. Extra weight should be added to the shaft that needs it , thus the added inertia doesn't have to be transferred via the drive belts. In other words if one is trying to help the engine with starting motor loads then add weight to the generator shaft. If trying to reduce flicker caused by the engine then add weight to the crankshaft.

I have parts in stock as does Gary at Diesel Electric Service.
The CS head will work on the Metro as long as it is not one of the direct injected versions. If so then you must also change the piston to use a CS head.

thanks for the reply, your way over my head.

Don't feel alone! When Bruce talks engine and power management I get lost right after he says hello! I can only wish that I had his electrical knowledge!

There are tachometers that work from the injector line pulses. I used to own one .  Maybe you could integrate one with a control to pull the rack? But that's in Bruce's territory for sure.

A number of the clone engines that Gary at Diesel Electric Service sold were exported by that company. The ones I have been through, 6-8 of them were middle of the road, not the worst I have seen, and not the best. Springs are in stock.

OK I didn't watch the video. The original post stated "pull a 15KW load" which in normal generator conversation means continuously and adding flywheel mass does nothing for that. Now when the subject changes to  surge capacity as the in rush needs for starting a motor then  yes a larger lywheel will add (very) temporary surge capacity IF the generator head is sized to match.  Just remember it doesn't come for free thus running a larger flywheel than necessary doesn't conserve fuel, it wastes it.

Tanman yes heavy flywheels certainly will help to smooth out the power pulses,, I think the technical term is cyclic variation?   As for making power, doesn't happen. They store energy that is it and even with a massive amount of flywheel the stored energy is rapidly used up

How big does the flywheel need to be so I can just turn the fuel off and have free energy?? ;D ;D ;D ;D

Other Slow Speed Diesels / Few old Bamfords
« on: September 26, 2021, 12:59:35 PM »
Took a little road trip and picked up these Z series Bamfords diesels. A 10 HP, a 4.5 HP and a 4 HP parts engine. All are sold as soon as I have time to rebuild them. Factory parts are exhausted for these so we have to be quite resourceful to put them back as new with shop made and reproduction parts.

The 165F came today less than 3 full days from date of older. Must be best quality because it came with a gold striped tag that says so. I was disappointed that it doesn't have metal flake paint and chrome muffler but I will get over it ;D :D. Started right up after bleeding the pump and makes enough noise to wake the dead. When I have time to play with it I am going to back down the pump advance and see what that does. It is MUCH louder than the 196CC engine I bought last month. Came with an entailed manual, unfortunately one must know Chinese to read it. Also came with two tools that fit nothing on the engine.

You should have about .010 end play. It is possible on a twin to have the crankshaft shoved into the center main via wrong number of shims on each outside housing. Another possibility is the shims are not up on the pilot that is machined in the housing thus pinching the crank. Always place the shims on the housing and hold them while guiding it in place. If this all checks out then loosen the  center main retaining bolt and the end housing nuts about one turn. Then knock the crank end ways with a mallet or hardwood block and hammer. Are tighten and check. Yes, the crankshaft should turn easily when correct.

Changfa Engines / 165F engines back on Ebay

Back on Ebay are the slant cylinder 165F air-cooled diesels. I always liked the looks of that design. Hint, if you have interest don't pay the asking price. I saved the ad in my watch list and soon I had a reduced price buy it now offer.
