Not sure which it has to be honest. I'll check tomorrow. It's a good sized banjo for sure.

Anyone happen to know what size they are off the top of their head? Mine have seen better days and I can't seem to get them to stop a very slow drip.

Are all the parts gone? Would certainly be interested in a spare injector pump or two... Some other odds and ends.

Right on, Thank you for the information. I got the old girl up and running. Cylinder two seems to have a stuck ring perhaps. It will run but smokes a bit when I release the change over valve. exhaust isn't as warm, as the other. Not sure if just running it will loosen it up or not.  ???

Thank you, very much appreciated, sir. Any thoughts on Spec number? It has solid spoked flywheels, no pulley groves so assume it was generator spec'd.

So I picked up two of these units many years ago. Apparently they're from a telecom unit that had two running together in parallel for 400a @ 48v hooked up to a NG engine. Not sure if it was spec's at 1800 rpm or 3600 rpm. There is some information on the Micro Go gen forum but the site seems to be down. At least you can't get into any sub forms.

Anyway apparently these are rated for 48v @ 200a each. I'm really just in the testing phase but I haven't a clue as to how to wire these up and there is ZERO information about them online. I gather as most units like these utilize 3 phase AC output, my intention is to rectify the output to DC and run that into a charge controller/inverter.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

A JP2 was actually my first choice, but demand for those is always very high and they end up being too pricey. I had the option to buy a JP4 about 6 years ago when I lived up north. That's a big engine, perhaps too big for anything I would ever need. The JP4 can be had for pretty short money in Canada. Lots of them in Quebec anyway. So I settled on the JP3 as a compromise 8)

Still at 2k lbs it's all there.

Jp3 has been on my bucket list for some time. I'd like to restore it with my Son. 

Looks to be a nice JP3 there. Sigh. So far away.  :-\

I have three of these engines. Lister CE, one is a parts engine so if you get stuck I may be able to help.

As was notes, parts are the real problem as there is no real following for them like the CS engines. I have a broken crank on one of them, and sourcing a replacement has come up empty, other them spending a small fortune to obtain one from across the pond.

Everything else / Sherwood pumps.

Anyone know of a place to find out information on old sherwood brass works pumps? I picked up an old pump, mostly because I thought it looked pretty cool  ::). (I like old brass things)

On it:

sherwood brass works detroit
4601 or 4501 (hard to read)

Seems to have two impellers brass (kind of like an oil pump) shaft driven with a keyway, but appears that it was bolted directly to something (engine???) about 20lbs of brass! 1 1/4" NPT ports.

Didn't get very far with google and didn't want to bother sherwood (yet)

I always consider North American 240v "split phase". It's single phase power, since as you will notice you only have one "hot" line on your power poles. Keep your eye on them and you will notice when there are 3 hot wires up there. Then you can access true 3 phase power. I actually see a lot of 3 wire power poles around me since I live in farm country, although my road only has single phase.  >:(

Thanks folks, both fuel and cooling. The CE I'm working on is a fair ways off before being ready to a test run. Just trying to line up places for parts I will need in future.

Funny... usually I check them for this sort of thing. They slipped my mind  ::)
