Generators / Re: 3hp Lister CS how big a generator can one drive
« on: September 02, 2018, 07:10:07 AM »
thanks everyone, for your thoughts, there is a strong attraction to a "real Lister" as a kid we had 32volt lighting, and then  a start o matic, to keep mother happy.
i used to turn the light on to hear the engine start, when i was small.
it run till the mid 70,s when they got power.
We had a 3 day blackout this year and we survived on the 24 solar panels on the roof, and an old Honda e2500.
So there is an excuse to put something together just in case. So i'm doing a bit of research.

Generators / 3hp Lister CS how big a generator can one drive
« on: September 02, 2018, 04:12:34 AM »
Just wondering how big a generator a real 3hp CS could drive as a backup generator?
 or is it more suitable to drive a 24volt alternator and charge batteries in stead?

109
could go up a bit but was working on the idea that a 10kw engine would drive a 6-7 kw alternator at full power, so a smaller one at say 1500 rpm would be a lot quieter, and less engine stress, so that's how i came up with the power figure.
All suggestions and education most very welcome. Just needed something for house back up power every now and then at the moment.
Or power for the dog house in the future.

Generators / 2.5 to 5.0 kw Gen Head in Australia for S195 Engine
« on: August 29, 2018, 04:02:57 PM »
Can anyone suggest a generator head, two bearing type, that i can get in Australia that would be suitable for the mighty ZS195.

Or will i have to hunt down an old Japanese generator from the 70,s or 80,s  and steal the belt driven head.

Glad i could help, but don,t want to feed an addiction. LOL,  Then i can't talk i have 13 seagull outboards in my shed. So if you get one report back, ok.
And i did see a 7.5kw 3 phase motor, in the Sons,workshop last week, that would go well with a zs195 im thinking.

Are you in OZ?

This is some info i looked at a while back, on using a 3 phase motor as a gen, it might help some with the basics.

Changfa Engines / Looks like i missed the boat on the chanhfa experence.
« on: August 15, 2018, 02:27:00 AM »
Hi All, it looks like i missed the boat on the whole Changfa experience, by about 10 years or so. But it looking like i might get  a turn as well.
One of our customers has a shed full of things, you know those thinks that you can,t through out or will need for a job one day, when ever that comes.

And hidden in  it all is this

As best we can find out its a zs195 made by the Shifeng company, but like all these things no date on the engine plate, so expecting a serial number was a bit much.
All the tools are in there orange plastic box, with a set of rings and main bearings, and it looks like the engine has never been started.
No oil in the engine, inside if the fuel tank is dry, so it might be worth a go.

Any one had any experience with this make of engine?

Sorry don't seam to be able to make my picture of the engine show in the post, computers are not my thing, so have linked to a picture on there web site, only difference is this engine has a radiator, with a belt driven fan like the Japanese engines.

Sorry to be so long winded, have enjoyed reading about everyone else,s adventures, and thought i might join in.
