thanks Dieselman.

Engines / Petter PJ injector pipe problem
« on: April 21, 2012, 10:18:17 PM »
i have a Petter PJW3, where one of the pump to injector pipes has come out of the steel "olive"  if that's what you call it, at the pump connection nut, can this be repaired, or is it a new pipe ?

I'm guessing it's crimped on ?

Waste Vegetable Oil / solid fats ?

Anyone using solid fryer fat for engine fuel ? what kind of heating and filtering set up have you got ?

Waste Motor Oil / WMO - Stirling engine, made for each other.
« on: March 04, 2012, 10:32:03 PM »
May be the best way forward for the wonder free fuel WMO is burning it to run a Stirling engine, then generating heat and electricity. The ash problem in Diesel engines is not going to be solved easily.

You would think an engine invented in 1816 would be easy to get hold of, but no one is making them at economic quantities.

Lister Based Generators / Small Diesel generator project
« on: January 23, 2012, 01:43:02 AM »
I'm planning out making up a mini Diesel generator to charge batteries, 25 amps @ 13.5 v will do it. I'm looking for a cheap watercooled single cylinder that i can run at slow rpm, 1000 max, for around 1.5 / 2 hp. The point is to get off Petrol, and move to Diesel at half the cost, and it must be very quiet, hence the low rpm. What engines are suitable ?

AVA1 maybe ?

We have not touched on the very important question of is the wmo exhaust toxic, and if so we need it analized and compared to Diesel fuel.

If the result is bad then we cannot proceed any further.

As regards heavy metal contamination, iv'e changed my mind, is there any ? the wear of bearing metal into the oil over the whole life of the engine and it's oil changes probably is insignificant.

Additives in the oil may be nasty though, but then  Diesel is not made from flowers !

HELP the yanks are pinching all our CS's !

don't think your going to get away with it, iv'e alerted the navy, and there sending our new aircraft carrier out to stop you, just as soon as they've built it, yes we haven't got any planes for it, we sold them, but we have a WW1 bi plane from the war museum on standby.

General Discussion / Re: pre start oil priming ?

On my original post starting all this off i was thinking about pressurized oil systems in later model Listers. it would be simple to put a handpump in the oil feed line and get some pressure in there before starting.

Listeroid Engines / Re: New Listeriod seller on ebay uk...........
« on: December 16, 2011, 09:28:42 PM »
I noticed just that too.........
Anyway, I've just bought one for 99p. So I'm looking forward to hear from him  ;D

A quick read of the ad and i don't see anything stating the 99p bid is not just an ad, it's legally binding .

Also original CS's are common in Britain, and alot less than 995.

Original Lister Cs Engines / Re: Welding a cracked water jacket.
« on: September 17, 2011, 09:19:46 PM »
Have you considered " cold arc'ing" it ?

Thats dc stick welding using a nickel electrode (not ferronickel )with no pre-heating, you grind it out and build the weld up in short runs, to put as little heat into it as possible, and you let it cool between welds.

I've only done this on non critical parts, but i have a Lister JP3 water jacket to do soon.

General Discussion / pre start oil priming ?
« on: September 17, 2011, 09:07:28 PM »
Thoughts on this idea,

 install a seperate oil priming pump, either manual or electric ,in parallel with the crankcase pump, to pre load the bearings with oil before starting, if you go starting battery powered then it would be similar to a heat position on the start key switch. The boffins tell us that alot of the wear takes place in the cold start before the oil pressure builds up, this would eliminate that .

You could possibly fill an accumulator vessel of oil during the previous run, and open the valve just before starting next time.

i see what your saying but you have to agree no one uses felt anymore, not even Listers.
