How about using a circuit breaker ?

Generators / Re: Glyptal vs. Generic?

Old thread but has anyone been using Glyptal, POR-15 or any other miracle paints recently ?
 In addition to painting the crankcase of my PH1 Kryslar clone . The underside
Of the mower desks have lost all paint and are now a rusty surface that grass clippings adhere to.  Glyptal lists some HD epoxy paint ? Wonder if it may do the trick with a touch up now and again when the kids try to mow stones .

   Oily smoke and soot deposits are products of incomplete combustion.  Engine coolant temp should be 195-210F. straight 40 weight oil is better than 15W-40.  Air filter ? Too small or dirty ? Injection event too late ?

Forgive me for the amature question, I have only had the block, head and injection pump off the engine .
   Is the image of # 1 an oil pressure relief valve . #2 an oil pump that pushes oil with the cam and the spring ensures the pump plunger to follow the lobe #3 an oil pump that functions similr to the low pressure fuel pump . The lobe pushes the plunger and spring away, with the spring pushing the plunger and this the oil . With a max oil pressure limited by the spring pressure .   

As previously stated by numerous others, probably too right on the ring gap.

Here in the land of ice and snow . We are getting away from plate collectors and pumping water . Instead PV panels are used to power resistance heaters in an “ordinary” electric water heater .
  No risk of freezing , less to leak, no pumping and higher water temperatures.

 Still applies in most of the world today and used to be common in the west. Elderly Mom and Dad moved in with the first born son until the end of their days.

 Not the first diesel that ran backwards after being almost stalled.
 Did it myself the first time down the pulling track with a John Deere two cylinder diesel 720 in 3rd gear instead of in 2nd . She was lugging down and I was 100 milli seconds too slow pulling the clutch. She kicked over and ran backwards blowing smoke and the oil bath air cleaner oil out the intake stack. Oil all over the hood and myself. 
   Fortunately the V4 gas starting engine was in good tune and fired up or that would have added to the embarrassment . Rolled it over 7 to 8 revolutions without compression before the oil pump re-primed and the pressure gauge began reading. Added compression and fuel and she barked to life.

Listeroid Engines / Re: Largest displacement listeroid single ?

If you extrapolate via displacement  . A naturally aspirated diesel makes 1/4HP per cubic inch at 1800rpm.

18.4Kw hr if used 0-100% on the Volt .  The Bolt has a serious sized battery pack with 60Kw hr .

CO2 only makes up .1% to .2% of all the combined greenhouse gases . 300, 600 or 900ppm is not going to make a flea phart’s difference  in a wind storm. 
  If worried about iceberg calving off Antiartica . Have a look at the unprecentes volcanic activity occurring under the icesheet.

One of the two provinces in Canada that gave tax payer’s money to EV users is ending the subsidy. Ontario voters decided they did not want to give $9500-$14,000BEV and hybrid purchasers .
  Just leaves British Columbia iirc to try and make a mass market where none exists . Why purchase a $52,000 Bolt when $23,000 will bring home the same vehicle with the Sonic nameplate .

 A lot of people seem oblivious that during the winter heating season. The heat from lights and appliances is not a loss.

A "snubber" is like an Anti-Water-Hammer device, sometimes with an air chamber, but usually a spring loaded shock absorber, plumbed into the hydraulic network .

We mostly use a small diameter orifice .
