Listeroid Engines / Re: Big end oiling
« on: August 11, 2006, 10:01:53 PM »
Yesterday I slotted my dipper and filed a 'hook' on the bottom so it scoops up oil.   The engine knock was less pronounced.  I shut the engine down and reversed the direction of the 'scoop'.  The knock came back.  Reversed the scoop and it's noticibly quieter.
And shadetree quantified it is! It seems that the only test left the fatigue cycles of the modified dipper. Shadetree test procedure would dictate run 'er until a knock reappears, open the hatch, see if it broke. Bob, still approve? He he he.....

7. balance issues,, where are we with this one.
1) Dynamic balance flywheels on both singles and twins. gpkull did this on his twin and his fathers single on a large truck wheel balancer. He achieved virtually zero imbalance with stick on weights. Should be no more cost than standard wheel balance.
2) Weight match pistons, con rods, and crankshaft counterweights in twins. Remove material from non-critical areas.
3) Static or dynamic balance of piston & con rod to crankshaft.

So far I have seen no explanation of how to get a 700 lb chunk of cast iron off a trailer and into your garage...
Borrow an engine hoist and it's owner. A couple of 6 packs of good beer and a promise to fire it up once cleaned out and bolted down should do the trick. ;)

Bob's post should be a sticky for all new imported engine owners. Any moderators out there want to help folks save a lot of time, effort, and heated debate?

Hey Snail, sorry man, gettin' old, couldn't read the post. Any chance of enlarging it?

Hey Guy, get my PM?

Is your whizzo blower design based on my stress levels or how many decent looking women I have hopping in and out of my bed?

Hey, you wanna compare lifestyles and surplus pussy you go right ahead, you'll lose that one too.... lrfh
You feeling the need to compare any of this anyone else shows nothing more than insecurity on your part. You need not concern yourself with my projects. I never asked for, nor, do I even want your opinion. Spew your negativity upon someone else. My design already works. There is no need to submit it to the GuyFawkes Doom and Gloom commitee for approval. You want to see a whizzo blower? Check a mirror.

see a pattern here?
Yes, most definately. I believe that everyone else here sees the same pattern that I do. $100 says that you're one absolutely miserable human being. Misery loves comapny. However, quite ironically, I've got another $100 that says that you're one lonely Mofo.

This is what I did to mine. I didn't do much research but it sure looked like it should have been done this way. The oil grooves in the rod cap were yelling at me give me oil! The one on the right is Indian style.
Thanks Xyzer. An open and objective mind was all that was required to implement mechanical innovation. And the best part is that Mobile Bob approves. How could this be a bad thing?

I didn't lay $100 on the table so you could indulge in your usual trick of moving goalposts and restating the same bullshit a different way.
No you layed $100 on the table until you realized that you might actually have to pay it. Then you tried to justify removing it. But hey man that's cool. It is what it is.

$100 says there is prior art...
That's very generous, Guy. As many R&D projects are typically underfunded, I accept. Just to be clear. I produce a patent # and you produce $100. Is that correct? Will that be USD or GBP. From the screen name I deduct that you are in the UK. Wasn't Guy Fawkes the gun powder dude? Something about many kegs of powder, supposed to blow something up but, caught and killed prior? I vaguely remember the story as told by one of my elementary school teachers. I wasn't paying attention. I was too busy trying to pound square blocks through round holes.

Thanks for the reply Bob. This is refreshing. I'm bouncing between computers and don't have much time at the moment but I'll be back in the morning.
Every method of mechanically pumping air possible has already been developed.
Yes, tell all of your friends. New science is not possible. Everything has already been done. My designs will never be patented. You're right, once again.

A low pressure high volume screw compressor use as a supercharger.
2 points for Andre. My focus for the last several years has been supercharging. I am currently developing a supercharger of my own design. Therefore, my research happens to be all about, what else but, volumetric efficiencies. Do I know everything about VE with regard to Listers?
No, of cousre not. But, I know what will improve the VE of practically every other internal combustion engine. I can hypothocise that some of if not most of the flow dynamics obsevered in every other engine on the planet also apply to Listers. If not, my aplogies. Write me off as a flake.

i learn from everyone,,, (even Darren  ),  and i think thru discussion others might learn too.
Bob, honestly, how do you learn from anyone if you're always right? Debate is one thing, but dammit man, it seems like your hobby is to hang out by the computer and shoot down anything not accompanied by a forensic report. Are you compensating for something? Some of my current projects might actually amaze you, but then again probably not. You've probably already done everything I'm attempting. We don't know each other. Maybe that's not a bad thing.

who da hell are you?

Someone who, evidently, knows nothing.

Increased in efficiencies are possible, but at the price of the loss of flexibility, loss of robustness, loss of user friendliness, and at higher cost, costs that almost always outweigh any monetary gains in efficiency.
These are the words of a pessimistic, closed and feeble minded idiot. Therfore, I hope this is a qoute by someone else that you've chosen to use without regard for it's accuracy. Otherwise, you sir, are not as smart as you would lead every one here to believe.
