Original Lister Cs Engines / Re: Water or steam injection

Very thoughtful that you gave the two engines a window so that they can view outside while working  ;D

You may already be aware, but the arduino "uno" and "mega"do not have WiFi capability.
If you wish to communicate with the system from the house, take a look at the Wemos D1R2.
Form factor and programming language is the same as Arduino but it has WiFi connectivity.
It even uses the Arduino programming software.
Costs around $10
The big difference with the Wemos is that it's pins are all 3.3vdc (like the raspberry Pi) unlike the Arduino which is 5vdc.
Buy local from Amazon. (As you know, ... EBay is not shipping from the Asia at the moment)
Make sure it's the Wemos D1 R2 . The older Wemos D1 has been phased out but there may still be some old inventory being sold.

cheers,

Lister Based Generators / Re: Automatic Remote Control Generating Sets
« Last post by sinna42 on February 20, 2020, 02:58:18 PM »
I know this is an old post, but I just found it today while searching for info on my gen set.
What a great find !
I have recently acquired a Lister CS 12/2 Gen set with a 7.5kVA (6kW) head. It Dates from 1952 where it was installed in a farm in West Lothian. Serial no 2861022.
It is a remote start unit very similar to this one I think. But the really odd thing is it's only fitted with a Fuel Control Solenoid & an Engine Speed Sensor (microswitch), so there is nothing to operate the Changeover valves & nothing to operate the de-compression levers !
The Changeover valves are different to the normal 3/1 & 5/1 types which are concave - mine are most definately convex.

I'm hoping that Malcolm could sent me a copy of the manual shown in his first photo - 585/1260. This is what I've been searching for !
I've sent you a PM.

For interest attached are photos of my CS 12/2 in it's original position.
Farmer needed space to garage a very nice Testa P100D car - who says there's no money in farming ?

Cheers,
Jim

Amazing amount of work being done (and man/animal power being saved) by a single piston.

Edit: Oops, replied to the wrong thread  :-\  I moved it here ... "Water Steam Injection"
https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8949.new#new


It's unlikely that you will need water injection on a continuous basis so consider an algorithm to intermittently dose the engine.

Thanks for the explanation, I'm surprised it took a bad turn. A lot of forums seem to have folks now days that get upset easily.
Butch didn't seem the type. Really unfortunate that all his content is gone. I've searched for him around the net and on some other forums, but didn't find anything.

Just curious, but are you able to expand on that a bit? I missed it all, and it flabbergasts me that all that good info has been retracted. I missed the donnybrook I guess?

I believe the Crux of it was butch got all bent out of shape at yours truly because he didn't like my way of writing and mannerisms  and I believe also got upset because people here discuss things off the topic of engines and share  online personal friendships which he seemed to have some problem with and thought was inappropriate.

I'll be damned if I am going to watch my P's and Q's because some Politically correct Princesses can't handle normal adult civil language.
Instead of the precious Pussy's expecting everyone else to become like them, which I will Never do, It might behove them to man up, take a big tablespoon of concrete and harden the fark  up.

The fact he took all his posts down particularly if I was his main problem as he told others, only shows that he was not here at all to help people but in fact for self gratification. There wasn't any donnybrook as such, no arguments or problems other than one way it seems,  just a few comments pertaining to his displeasure and then he disappeared after removing all his worthwhile posts as if to punish people here. 
Like I said, Bloody childish IMHO.

I got to say, I have been amazed several times at the way people on forums about " Manly" Subjects get so damn precious and easily offended or at least fein offence.  The most incredible ones I have ever seen are on metalworking and metal casting forums.  You'd think blokes playing with blast Furnaces and melting metal in their back yards or belting the crap out of red hot steel for fun Might have a decent pair of gonads but I don't think I have seen a bigger bunch of Soft Cock whining little girls in my life!  My wife looks at a Knitting forum where the participants are thicker skinned than those guys!  I don't know why men are becoming such a bunch of hysterical girls.
Probably something to do with the way people get so wrapped up in social media these days and let it affect their real world reality.


Just after Butch disappeared, Bruce also seemed to get a bad case of the PC leftie disease and became upset with a lot of things different  people besides myself said which he expressed offence at. He took his bat and ball and went home as well lamenting Butch's withdrawal.
I surmise Bruce and Butch have found a cosy safe space corner of the internet where they can sit and eat Cucumber sandwiches  and drink tea with their little pinkies sticking out lamenting the impertinence of the great unwashed here.   :laugh:
Good luck to them.

Pitty, because Bruce was a clever man and I particularly admired his electronic skills and practical ways of doing things. He helped me with a few things I use every day and were able to work out with his help and I think of him in gratitude every time I look at them thinking what an asset they are to me.

 I know he had health issues which I'm sure didn't make him feel any better and I hope he is going well whatever he is doing now.
I see he does log in here from time to time.

People come and go, no one is indispensable, such is life.  I do hope Bob and Ed are able to find more time to come back here. They both have a lot on their plates and probably not much leisure time to surf the net. They are a pair of very smart cookies that a person can Learn a LOT from.

Hi Dkmc

Just to give you a slight enlightenment, Butch slammed the door to give way to other canone knowledge about the subject.

I think he dismantled all footage because they were all wrong.

Since there we are all waiting for the best practice to achive that disered goal - documented with conspicuousness, offcourse.

So far nothing but void rant.

Just my thougts.

Cheers
