Why don't you turn that outlet pipe to face downwards?  That way it won't fill your tank with rainwater.

My SR2 doesn't have a return to the filter, only one going back to the tank and is working perfectly, so I guess it would be fine to blank yours off.  At the worst, if you have problems, you can always make a connection again.

He's alive and well.  Ade sent him a message and he got hold of me.  Have been chatting a bit via emails

I tried that but he is gone, cleared out, disappeared, maybe the CIA got him.  I left him a PM on Microgen, but he hasn't replied or read it.  I too found his knowledge useful and easily overlooked his abrasiveness.  His insight into everything WMO/WVO is unequalled.  If you do happen to go past him, please PM me his details.  I know EdDee is also keen to contact him. Thanks, Peter

I see Glort has disappeared from the forum, I assume banned as all his post have also gone missing.  I would like to get hold of him, so if anyone might have his email address, would you please share, or PM me.  Thanks, Peter

Just be aware that with that Z in your serial number, the engine is designed to run in the reverse of your normal Lister , IIRC.

Are you sure that the starter is too weak, or is it not that you should be flipping the decompression levers before trying to start?

For the life of me, why don't you post some pictures?  This thread is going 2 pages now, and makes no sense at all

Pretty much sums it up.  All the above apply this side of the ocean too, especially your last sentence.  I will try, but have almost zero chance of coming right.  Was also thinking of trying to find a car plug cap, something like my old Kombi which had a thread which screwed into the plug lead.

Thanks Glort.  I knew I could rely on you for an answer.  I'm hoping to force the lawnmower shop to replace the coil/plug lead seeing as they sold me the wrong plug. (even with the sample I took along)

Everything else / Brushcutter Sparkplug
« on: July 08, 2020, 09:08:04 AM »
My China brushcutter sparkplug failed the other day, so I replaced it with a NGK equivalent.  When I got home and compared the old and new, I found that the new one had a slightly shorter reach ( approx. 8mm).  Started first go and ran well, but after 15 minutes of use it got so hot that the cheap crap plug lead melted. 

Is it possible that it overheated because the plug is too short and detonation is occurring in that space that should be filled by plug shaft? (hope my description makes sense).  My gut says yes, the heat can't dissipate fast enough like it would if the electrode was protruding into the chamber, so the head is acting like a large heat sink.

Any thoughts, thanks.

I know what you mean.  I do maintenance at a fancy holiday house here in Plett and they have a massive Milkwood tree in their front garden.  It constantly sheds leaves on the roof, which block about 30m of gutters regularly.  On top of that, it sheds small black berries, which cover the wooden deck.  These things are incredibly sticky and when you stand on one it leaves a purple stain every time you put your foot down.  To top it all off, these trees are a protected species and one may not even lop off a branch without a million permits. 

Back to topic, your setup is looking good.  When summer comes you can supply the whole neighbourhood with power.

Don't forget about that container load for Ed, of which I would hope to buy a few ;D. Also, while you're on the roof, clean those bloody leaves out of your gutters  :police:
