Lister Market Place (things for Sale) / Re: Sort of Treasure Trove
« on: April 07, 2015, 07:38:30 PM »
Dieselgman,
   There is a plate w/ many bolts behind the pushrod area, ( same area as other 6-1 ) I would expect this was to repair frost damage as well, It does appear to be well done and almost appears stock.

Thanks for looking,
Paul

Thanks all for looking.

Guys,
No offense taken by any of your comments. The reality of the situation is that the 3 Listers were imported from England, so realisticly we can't hope to recover our investment after 6 years. Also realistically we want and hope that the engines will yet see a resurrection. Additionally we have 2 small water pumps, and a galvanized coolant tank with brass fittings and correct cover w/ vent hole, Lister we think, sure looks right. Any reasonable offer will be entertained.
Pictures tomorrow, hope their of sufficient quality to provoke interest. Yes it is difficult to have suck reality bit you, but we realize like many of us, that we only live so long, and much of our stuff will go to some scrapper, hopefully not these engines. Have a good evening.

VDub and all.
Not having pricing leaves us at your mercy, after I post some pictures it may encourage folks to reply or discuss more.

Changfa Engines / Re: Oil Pressure Indicator on Changfa 195
« on: May 11, 2008, 02:44:23 PM »
Danger! Danger! Bill Robinson, (sorry, could'nt help it) The 185 thru 1125 Changfas have extraordinary oil pressure, above 320 PSI cold, in that line. This level of pressure can and has caused severe leaks of 2 types. Type 1 is finances, IE: wallet leaks, due to parts replacement and oil refill costs. Type 2 is more precious, and is the amount of time spent running  or waiting for said replacement parts, as well as cleaning up all the oil sprayed out of the failed parts.

Fred, Check Utterpowers site, I belive he shows how to split the leeds internally to make 2 110V legs. The destructions are for the ST, but it may apply as well to your gen. Doug, I'm sure, has heard of this.

Waste Vegetable Oil / Re: NEWBE WVO/ATF/ PROCESSING AND FILTERING
« on: March 20, 2008, 02:58:55 PM »
Backroad & Mike, This cooling type is only a slightly more modern version of the open air condensers that were used on early single and duel cylinder ststionary flywheel engines in the early 1900s. Sid and several other members, that mess about with these older motors, can , I'm sure, do a much better explanation.

Everything else / Re: Cooling drum evaporation
« on: February 20, 2008, 05:21:10 PM »
Bob, the spheres you are talking about are used to prevent evaporation, like using oil, but the balls allow the material being processed to pass into the tank without being contaminated. Afriend of mine that owns an industrial plating shop uses them for that purpose.

RCA, I know this is only a temp. setup for testing and run in, but please try to eliminate the cast legs on the engine in your final design. Utterpower apparently had reports of these legs failing in service, and George encorages their elimination. I love the generator.

Other Slow Speed Diesels / Re: Changfa Radiator - And Alternator
« on: February 20, 2008, 02:42:16 PM »
Veggie, in checking out your site as well as this thread I notice you are using the cast legs provided by Changfa. If you look at Utterpowers site in the Changfa section you'll note George STRONGLY urges eliminating them, due to some having broken in use. For your not compleated system, you might consider a redesign based on what you see at George's site. You'll love the engine.

Perhaps the system used sucessfully in the 30's for condensers on flywheel motors would prove useable. Get some heavy bronze mesh, roll into a slight cone shape, approx. 21" OD at the big end X 18" OD at the small end X about 20" long. Put a ring at the big end to hold the dia., then flatten the other end closed to form sort of a flattened teepee. If you go to old engine shows you will see several versions of this type of condenser. Another version of this I have seen is U shaped copper (flashing ?) ribs, about 3/16 between the legs and spaced about the same in an A frame shape, the open side of the U faces inward, this will also provide ample surface area for condensing the evaporated water, and letting it drip back into the barrel. It will add that true, old engine look to your rig.

RCA, please check George's Utterpower site for some important info re: oil pressure. I haven't run my 1115 yet, but according to several of Georges clients, it will make upwards of 160 psi cold, and will blow standard oil pressure sending units easily, as well as popping standard oil filters. Georges CD is the best $20 I've spent in a long time. He also has a spiffy banjo bolt for adding a tap in 1/8 pipe for filters gauges etc.. I'll be watching your build carefully, as your build of the 175 was very clever and resorcefull. So please plan, document and execute so us slackers can have a good plan to adapt to our own needs. FEEL BETTER.

Bio-diesel Fuel / Re: How much does biodiesel cost and where can I get it?
« on: September 25, 2007, 07:08:11 PM »
Doug, please try TDI Club.com and see what many of us TDI owners are doing to our cars, and using in our engines. Our 2k TDI has been chipped, larger turbo, Cat fuel filter (2 micron), 2-1/2" exhaust, all done before 50k miles. We now are at 153k miles, runs great, all the while our fuel has been B20 except Dec thru March when we use B10 + Power Service. We live in Northern Illinois, not quite as chilly as your neighborhood but close. Oh, and our Chev 2500 DMax uses the same fuel, but it only has 20k. We have given serious thought to doing our own Bio D, using the info at infopop, which has quite a few real scientists as regulars as well as commercial refiners.
     Try it, you'll like it, and so will your engines.
oops, I pushed the wrong button!

Good day, I belive the other fellow running 375 rpm is Crazy Jerry, it should be easy to Google him. He also did the diesel motorcycle. Ah-ha, ww.diesel-bike.com, that's Jerry.
