Listeroid Engines / Re: What type of engine do I have ?
« Last post by Willw on Today at 10:58:37 AM »
Hi Stu, looks like an LPW4; search for that on Google and you should be able to find info on it.

I've never worked on one of these so I have no tips, sorry.

Someone will come along who can help though.

Engines / CAV fuel pump repair/parts
« Last post by bargelife on Today at 10:37:28 AM »
My Lister JP4 has a CAV BPE4B70N400/3 fuel pump.  I would like to get a reference for rebuild/repair for this unit.  Does anyone have a contact that may be of help.

Thanks

Tom

Hi VP, I am surprised the local diesel engineers don`t know what the pop pressure should be, but I`m very happy you have a good relationship with them and they like fixing old stuff.
Hi Cobbadog, I`m pretty sure that if you want to increase the tension in a spring, you need to shorten it. Blonde moment? :)

Well, here we go guys, the new shed is being delivered in kit form at the end of the month. The local concreting company has come in and leveled the site by tipping and compacting about 200 tons of road base (not cheap!). They have put up the form work for a 100mm slab with 450 mm wide piles under each steel stanchion.
The local building surveyor is coming tomorrow to inspect the work, I am hoping that I will have concrete poured on Monday, weather permitting. I will have to let the concrete cure for a couple of weeks before we erect the shed.
All up, this is going to cost me around 80,000 Australian dollars, that includes water tanks. Money I really don`t have to spare but you only live once! If my bank don`t like it they can go and swivel!
So, a couple of plan views of the shed and a couple of pics of the works in progress.

I agree that over time springs do loose some pressure, especially if it was compressed after shutting sown last. You mentioned to add a shim to lift the pressure but to me that sounds back to front. If it has lost pressure I thought you would remove shim/s.

So, if they are R175 engines than fix the post and everything would be fine. This topic can be cleaned up, if you would like.

As to "cleaning up", I think I will belay that.

It is good to see, if someone cares to look, that this kind of stuff can happen.  I know for fact certain that the vendor showed me a picture of a display model.  She may not even know the difference.

I've asked the vendor for a picture of the engine data plates, and a picture of the engines, crates, etc.  I'll see what she sends me after they wake up and have their coffee, or engage in whatever bad habits they prefer there.

As you can see, there are differences that are noticeable between the R165 & R175. Your vendor has most likely mistakenly sent you the wrong picture. This should be addressed. Unfortunately it seems like you had no idea that your vendor could be wrong. The pictures I posted do not lie. They are worth a thousand words. One thing the Chinese try to do is keep all  engine models close to the same spec. Its pretty much  like the military spec'd engines that were made here in the US until the late 1980's.

So, you have a picture of a R175. Get in touch with your vendor and go over it with him. If you would like to get deeper in this. Look at the differences in the block. And the R175 is a larger block.

So, if they are R175 engines than fix the post and everything would be fine. This topic can be cleaned up, if you would like.

Bob, Gentles

Many thanks for your support.

You know I dont need to make trails on injectors. I have a near me an expert company with laboratory (see here: https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8333.msg100298#msg100298; and here: https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg96965#msg96965) - and I have good relationship with manager, just because I hull to there stuf he doesnt see from years.

Therefore I'll take this one to them also.

And yes, I got shims (from my 12/2, to make clearence to throtlle linkage) that could do the job, even if company doesnt got them.

Lets see, and finger crossed (I think nozzle is prestine).

Cheers
VP

PS: A pic with injector reassembled to keeps bits together.
