   When I operated the boiler at Georgia Pacific,we tested the boiler water ,and makeup water 3 times per 8 hr shift. The system automaticaly blew down after each new 100 gals. of makeup water was added to the boiler. We changed the length of the blow down based on the test results. We also did 2 manual  blow downs per shift.
   That 1970 boiler was according to the guy who did our annual insurance inspections,the cleanest boiler he inspected.We also had the chemical co test guy by once a month to do water test.

   Hey Guys,
   Check with a local mulch producer if there's one in your area. I was at our local grinders today,and he begged me to come and get some. Wire cage around itt,6in. covered top fill,2 in. gated,and capped drain. I'm going to get a coupla thee or so . They had mulch dye in them non poisionous ,food safe according to operator owner.
   I did some sawing for this guy with my portable sawmill last year,so your mileage may vary ,yada ,yada,no financial intrest

   I'M AN IDIOT !!!!! That shouldn't come a a real surprise to anyone. I've been looking for a little diesel beater truck,just a local daily driver. I have an '85 Nissan 4x4 with a bad carb. Just dawned on me what I need to do,put a dieselin instead of paying $300. for a carb.
   Question is ,anybody know of a Nissan forum? I ain't having any luck

   Probably the best post I've read here.
   It's unlikely that India is going to make significant improvements in engine quality,no matter what we do or say.Our only option is to do the best we can with what is available,ie bring the listeroids up to "Lister" specs-run them like they are,and take what we get,or find a different design altogwther.
   Stilllllll ,it would be nice to open a crate from india,and take out an engine with materials,fit ,and finish as good as the originals

   I'm not sure that any of the engines are good now. Exporting bad engines would be just as bad sa selling them localy. The point is ,a new engine shouldn't have quality  issues ,no matter where it's sold.Dirt,misalignment,broken parts ,poor assembly practices ,and shoddy materials and workmanship ought not to have to be tolerated.
   One day ,someone will build "GOOD" engines,that don't have to be rebuilt before being put into service.That someone will do very well financialy,but it will take a lot of work to do it.

Listeroid Engines / ARE THESE GUYS MISSING IT?

   What are the manufacturers thinking about? They are building a product aimed at third world customers,with third world spendable incomes.   " Ahmed" gecides that he needs an engine to irrigate his fields,grind grain,or whatever. He takes two or three years income and buys an engine that because the idler gear shaft was put in wrong will only run 400 hrs. What happens then? Is it now junk?Where does he get parts,or better how does he pay for them ?
   Substitute casting sand,leaks,broken castings,or any of the maladies Listeroid owners have faced. Why would a manufacturer do this? Cheap made crap is cheap made crap,don't matter how much green paint you put on it. You can bet the farm,if Mr Ahmed bought an XYZ bramd engine,and it pukes it's guts,he's going to tell it downt at the bar- coffee shop,or whatever the local gathering spot is .These guys are supossedly howling costs,how much does bad publicity cost?
   This is a good design,or it wouldn't have lasted this long. One of these days,some one is going to start building "GOOD" engines again using Mr Lister's design,and they will sell. Period. Yes they will cost more up front,but when Mr Ahmed goes to his banker,bil,or local loanshark,wherever he gets his money ,that guy is going to want to know this lump of iron is going to have more than scrap value 1 year from now.
   Wonder who it will be,and when?
