Dose anyone else have photos of your engines? It would be interesting to see and this will help us all with ideas of different types of setups.

Hi,

the system heats my house, garage and workshop.

During the winter it provides all the heating and hot water it runs 16 hours a day auto switching between storage heating and hot water.

28.5 kw storage heaters and 20,000 btu wet radiators from the cooling water none from the exhaust (yet)

The wvo Is settled and filtered Threw 3 barrel settling then threw twin head washable 5 micron filters then passed threw 5 micron 1 micron lastly 0.5 micron then up to storage barrels gravity feed down the the lister


Veggie do you have a similar set up?

John

Hi all,

I only use the generator to put power to storage heaters, not radios or televisions. is it necessary to replace the radio interference capacitor?

Regards

having a closer look on the photo it could be .22 and not 22 what do you think?

It was on the end of the BKB generator I am getting the hang of putting on photos. a photo is better than a thuosand words Ha Ha.

Just to give an update I have rewound the resister in the top box again using 0.6mm mig wire insted of 0.8mm. for the moment all is working. I will keep you posted.

I am back with another problem! Help Please.
It appears that the alternator is overcharging I have rewound the Resistor in the box on top of the alternator. using the hole length of the resistor still doesn't take the volts below 30VDC The amp meter is hard over to the stop about 5 amp but don't know how much more. I don't want to Boil the battery's!
Could it be the rectifier on the end of the alternator? is there any way I can test it. I don't have a wiring diagram for the alternator but I have sent for a lister manual on the BKB 4.5 Kva should be hear in a few days.

Hello,

I have ordered one of each 24volt and 230volt controller shut dawn device I will try one on the 230 volt If that don't work I will put the 24volt one on the exhaust lifter solenoid that closes the pump rack at the same time. I believe this would be the easiest to retro fit.

this is a photo of what I have ordered

Hello Bruce,

I am not sure what part of the world you stay but there must be a time difference between us I am in the far north of the UK.

I am generating 220Volt 50 hz it is a old type BKB start o matic
 
Do you think that the photos I sent of the voltage cut out will work on the AC 220volt
I could get one for the 24 volt charging side and set it to trip at 28 volt (that's a guesstimate). you could please advise on the upper voltage trip setting.

the reason that I believe that the 220 volt side wont work as well is because I have one of that device that plugs into a socket then you plug in a load IE: light or heater into it. it has a screen that reads the voltage, amps, hertz . when the unit is plugged in on its own the engine dose not start. then the heater is switched on the engine starts when the heater is switched off but still plugged into the device the engine still runs until the device is switched off. if this makes sense. I only use this plug to test check the volts amps hertz

I am unable to run the engine over rev at the moment because when she over reved she brunt out the charging resistor. I have sent for 0.8mm wire to rewind the resistor.

Regards

John
