Hi Gentles

Copper gasket applied in both bottom face of gaskets, because the face of heads has been skimmed and so they are perfectly flat.

Heads already in place and torqued, and I forget to make a pic of the coated gaskets.

Next start up of it ill let it warm up a bit to retorque all nuts, while it stays warm after shutdown.

PS: 1 pic of the product.

Now pics from cyl #2

Hi Gentles

The two heads are out and cleaned. A eye ball magnifier shows cyl # 2 was leaking due to a low spot.

Do you remember I didn't skim the cylindres, because I don't want to loss original stamps in the cast iron.

I think that just a retorque of studs will do, but in this way I can get the global picture of the work done before.

Now will get copper gasket seal to fill that little spot, and torque nuts to proper spec.

Pics:
#1 refer to cylinder 1
#2 refer to cyl 2

Hi Gentles

Today I was maintaining the Lister. I filled the cylinder jackets with water, and when it started to work he splashed some water through the hot water outlet manifold.

I suspect that one of the head gaskets must be leaking. A few more hours to take the heads apart.

Nothing that a Lister can't be worth.

Anyway, TLC.

Hi Gentles

New project is going. Today making the camshaft extention to fit starting handle. Made also the dog and weld it to an adapted crank.

2 pic for the enthusiasts.

Hi Gentles

Remember my torque wrenches? The big one has its new locknut, and the small was out of spec.

Both taken to the metrology Lab of ISQ (see: https://www.isq.pt/EN/services/metrology/) and certified (see seals).

This Lab is internationally renowned.

Be safe.

Hi Gentles

In my little or no experience, and above all, given your admiralty knowledge, there is a conclusion I geted: to get a voltage stable genhead, I need to have a heavy flywheel, or other weight to preserve the momentum. Of course it would be best to have low rpm to extend engine's life.

Another conclusion I could get in most of LEFs threads, is the start key of any engine must have - at least - more than 2kg, I mean a starting handle (I'm not referring big ships) . (forget SOM, a good stationary engine must be attended)

Ever you ever thougted the luck we have to tweak "nowadays" a 6/1, or a 12/2, or other low rpm engine. They are machines builted for life. (How many mechanics did you had 50 years ago in the middle of australia to give assistence?)

Just my thoughts for this thread.

Hi Tan

"If you are not the original engine/equipment manufacturer"... "as long as they are still substantially in their original configurations"

A replica its not "original" even after 21....25....or more years.

I think you can import a Lister (old iron) CS, JP, FR or other, but.... (see) but not a Listeroid.

But (again) nothing like to ask to your near customs how they read that article...

Changfa Engines / Re: How to remove fuel injection pump in 295d engine ?

Hi Mike

Some IP are lubricated by fuel (diesel or WVO [this last too thick to lubricate]) if IP is rotating type IP, just 1 plunger.
But if IP is inline cam (multiplunger) with lobs acting in plunger element, they are lub by oil, thin oil.

Take a look at Bosh and CAV tech. Bosh (some) are lub by fuel (others, i.e, kiki (nippon bosh) are plunger). CAV (I think) are most multi plunger.

Just my thoughts.............
