Seems odd as temps in hydronic heating systems can get up to 180-190F in normal operation.

Mike, you might want to read my thread. There's a video of mine running in the posts. Both sound about the same at 1800
Might want to take the pan off & have a look?

I'll wager 20 Attaboy's it's oil pressure sensor or safety switch.

You might be right. The interest group is small for sure. Right now I'm more of a collector than a seller. There are a number of engine
shows in the region and I've only ever seen one 6-1 one time. There is however plenty of money based on the collections I see, and prices posted on what's for sale. It's possible someone would want a Listeroid when the time comes to sell them. They are rare in this area.

He's at $1400 for it and an ST5 no skid.

Please throw your opinions here, of what a brand new Metro 6/1 (partly apart) would possibly be worth today......?
Looks unmolested and preserved well. Light weight spoke flywheels

I didn't think they were diesels because not much smoke. Usually racing diesels pump out black clouds of smoke.

Nice.  I've recently thought about building or buying a used one. Seems like it would be satisfying to produce lumber, not to mention cost savings.

My 6/1 Ashwemeg had thick paint over sand in the crankcase. The needle scaler easily broke thru it to reveal the surprise pockets of grit.

Looks and sounds like a 1000 rpm twin at the rated rpm

The flywheels are 5 feet tall.

More examples of overspeed?
In this video at 1.00 and at 3:10 the 2 big engines seem to be running quite fast.

Best of luck to you as well Bob!

Hi Guys, sorry to hear about the heart attack. I had mine about 4 years ago. Like you I had no serious pain, just a weird feeling that something wasn`t quite right. My Wife has blood pressure issues and has a blood pressure testing machine, she took my blood pressure and the machine advised that I was having a heart attack. I was rushed to the local hospital where they announced that I was perfectly healthy and were going to send me home, fortunately one junior doctor asked for a blood test. After a heart attack the body releases an enzyme into the blood stream and there is a test for this. My test came back positive.
Three days later they got me a bed in Lismore hospital in Northern New South Wales, they ran tests and announced that I was perfectly healthy, fortunately one junior doctor suggested doing a stress test. I was hooked up to every piece of monitoring equipment available and put on a treadmill. They slowly increased the speed until, guess what, I had another heart attack. They revived me and sent me to the catheter laboratory where over the next few weeks they fitted three stents in my cardiac arteries, two of which had 90% blockages.
The reason for my arteries becoming clogged is almost certainly due to the 5 months I spent immobilized by a broken neck.
After returning home, I had to attend cardiac rehabilitation, this is where they introduce old people to gymnasium equipment, what the point is of putting an 80 year old disabled woman on an exercise bicycle still mystifies me. They also give you the lecture on your lifestyle and diet: no alcohol, no smoking, no cheese, no butter, no bacon, no animal fats, the list is endless basically you are expected to live on green tea and boiled cabbage, you won`t live any longer it will just feel like it!
I too was prescribed statins which I took for six months until the bush fires and covid made it impossible to access a doctor to get repeat prescriptions. I`m still going strong, I drink lots of red wine, I smoke and work seven days a week. I don`t expect to live forever but am trying to get as much done as possible in the time available.

So good luck with your recovery, try to find yourself a good doctor, my experience suggests that some of them don`t know what they are talking about. A small piece of encouragement is that my Father in Law lived with a stented heart for 10 years plus before dementia got him at 84.

Best of luck, stay well,

Glad to hear yoybare OK. Yes the low carb diet works for most people. I lost 50 lbs on it 4 years ago and went off it due to being tired of eating same things. Back on it now to shed a few punds gained back.

Thanks Butch. I agree completely about Keto getting boring taste wise. I do cheat a bit, life is too short to not indulge once in awhile.
