Hi guys. Its been a few years since I posted last but I pop in for a look every once in a while. Nothing new in the engine dept. I might pull my 6/1 heavy wheels out and finish the rebuild (head was done 10 years ago). It is a rad model. The 16/2 in my avitar still lives here.
Actually there is a new one, an FR1 with a 6000w 110/220 direct coupled.
Its been a tough few years taking care of my ailing Mom who passed in January. Life can start again now so if any engine work is underway I will surely post it.
Take care all! 👋

The strainer is at the bottom of the crankcase on the fuel pump side behind the round plate that's held on by maybe 6 little bolts. At least it is on my fr1

I know where there is a 3 1/2 with an original drip can!

I'm watching you  ;)

Check out my youtube "contaucreek" channel for exhaust music. If slowed down and not loaded its about as loud as a dog panting. Carry on a conversation without yelling.

No I didnt go. I went to the HVID show and to flame ignition last year though. I love Coolspring.

My new to me homebuilt genset has digital v/hz readouts. Load free is 115/118 on the legs and 60hz +-. Does a slight rpm change effect voltage or just frequency?

Re micrometer, Starret makes a brail model. Im not shittin' ya, I saw it in their catalog.

Those crates will never be seen again. I hope they dont hit the burn pile. Dimensions and details for the record would be great!

Lots and lots of pictures please Gary.

See the lady on the way out  :D

Doesn't seem like there was much concern about storage deterioration  :laugh:

One more sleep until the day of reckoning.

When the hammer fell on the Crossley piano base slide valve engine last year it was at $330,000U.S. plus 10% buyer uptick. I venture to say the premium paid to secure that engine would probably buy most of the Listers at Iowa.
