Other Slow Speed Diesels / Re: Rapp 24 semidiesel overrun: close call
« on: February 05, 2011, 10:57:07 AM »
I would have had to go straight home and change. My shorts would have been full of something warm and it would have smelled bad. I use to rework hay balers which made a bale 4' x 4' by 8'. When you get the plunger up to speed and you have the mass of everything moving then something goes wrong you just get back. Then when everything has stopped you just hope there is still something to work with. DD

I think we should still be able to have some intelligent opinions. I can live with that if others can. DD

I really like the fact you have made a map of what and where we are going on this experiment. It makes it easier for us simple people. DD

I wish more people would join because expecting something for free anymore is becoming harder and harder. But I guess the upside is participation to get as many people as possible. Maybe the somrad membership will go up now.

Bob if you are not a somrad member will they still be able to participate in the experiment? Mike

First of all I don't think anything was going to be purged, at least that was not my intentions. I felt that the first post could still be for research and go forward with a totally positive attitude that we would over come something. I just reread the part Bob wrote and I think his use of the word SCRAP might be out of context. As for Mr Rohdel I believe I did welcome his ideas and I did call Spencer on the carpet for making that remark. This topic will never have cold hard facts as long as the experiment is scattered out around the world. We can however come up with some strong educated opinions that will help the rest of us who depend on others experience. If starting a second post please continue to keep the old one alive. Somehow we need to come up with some answers. Please accept my apologizes. Mike

Bob and I were talking and we thought a new post on this subject might make it easier to keep up with what is being posted. I don't imagine we will ever come up with hard facts what WMO will do to an engine. There are just way to many variables. I would guess we could come up with some strong educated opinions. My first goal is to receive some ash from the Kwik Lube here in town and mix it with a grease base and just test it for corrosiveness on some paint like rubbing compound. That should be easy enough for me. As for testing on hardened surfaces that will be the next step which will take a little longer. One step at a time they always say. Mike DD

We will probably never have facts but we can sure come up with some strong educated opinions.. DD

I would still like to figure out why there can be so much inconsistency's in WMO results. If we look at just WMO furnaces there was one instance where the ash production was great and in the WMO furnace used at the Kwick Lube here in Dodge it is a coffee can over the period of a season of using it. Is it strictly temperature related at the fire box? Could it be a difference in oil types? Is it how clean the oil is when it goes in the system. Some educated ideas from people much smarter that myself would help put my mind at ease when I decide what I am going to do next summer.

I will say the Kwick Lube does not centrifuge the oil but it has quite a bit of time to settle from the time it goes into the tank and when it is drawn into the furnace. I am going to see if I can get my hands on some of the ash and see how corrosive it is using it in some grease and rubbing it on a painted surface like rubbing compound. Thank you for this forum.

Rb I have beed looking to getting a centerfuge. My worries are having an oil line come disconected or a broken line. You seemed to have use one of these for quite awhile. Give me your thoughts. Thanks, Mike DD

If facts or even opinions are presented we are all old enough to form or own opinions. We do not need to keep hearing the same thing positive or negative towards thie post. Just my opinion. DD

Well I have to say I have a personal gain for this post. My only regret is I did not contact the person who was trying to sell his Lister with 17,000 hours on it using WMO. I have serious that he exaggerated the amount of hours since he was trying to sell it. I also have problems he would have lied about using WMO oil if it was bad for the engine.
I have about 300 gallons stored up with the intentions of saving money for fuel.  So I would say you are right keep the discussion at an adult level, even though i have been told I need to act my age. LOL
I am tired of hearing that WMO is bad when there is almost no prof. It takes numerous trials or experiments to prove or disprove facts.
So if my remarks have not been positive I apologize and I will go forward. Mike DD
