GTC 10/1 Installation Pics
« on: December 17, 2006, 02:39:32 AM »
A few days ago I commission a new GTC 10/1 genset.  I created a webpage to share my thought process on deciding what to buy, and how to install it.  I will be running this genset 24/7 and will continue to publish the maintenance and repair history on the internet.

also for those interested i have put the manuals for the engine, generator, and the original lister manual.

Captain Steven,
  A very interesting web page and your lifestyle sounds like a very different one from the rest of us.  I hope you keep us informed as to how you and the new Listeroid make out as you sail around.

thanks for putting it online.

Steven, you have an interesting site, I will be following it avidly.  You also have the best original Lister manual that I have ever seen (and I have seen 3 different versions). 

NOTE TO EVERYONE....you've got to see this manual, exploded diagrams of every and I mean every system on the 6/1, 8/1 and 12/2!  Fabulous!  Thank you Steven.

That's a nice frame that the genset came on - the belts and most of the rotating bits are reasonably well guarded.
Well, they were well guarded when it originally arrived - I noticed in the later pics that the belt guard was removed. :D

i have read the threads on resilient mounts.  all high speed engines on ships use resilent mounts to minimize vibration through the hull.  anything under 100 rpm is low speed, medium speed 100 -500, and above 500rpm  is a high speed diesel.  those mounts supplied by GTC literally completely eliminate vibration.  you can stand next to the engine and not feel a thing.

i do, however, get vibration transmitted from the exhaust (i have a flexible vibration damper at the exhaust flange and a dampened hanger).  in addition, there is some vibration migrating through the dampened hold down system i fabricated.

you are right.  i had to remove the belt guard to get the genset frame as close to the hull as i could.  there was not enough clearance to get the guard off so i had to eliminate it.

Great website, not many who would go through the trouble to post this valuable information for us. During teardown for the head gasket, I was suprised to hear you did not find any sand, this may indicate the Indian manufacturers might be hearing the complaints. Did your engine come with plain bearings or TRB's?
The manuals are helpful, thanks. Funny how the Lister manual mentions both foundation mounting and portable models but the GTC manual only mentions foundation mounts. Fuel for debate I guess.
