Hi Gentles

The greeny is getting fancy. Look at his temperature gauge!

A new toy for my ISEKI, 2nd hand box but condition new - a bargain, trully!

And after almost one month of rain, tangerine tree is heavy loaded.

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Sirpedrosa,

In post #179 you had a couple of photos of the fretting damage caused by slightly loose flywheels, but there were no replies !
Were the sizes ok so that you could just refit the flywheels with a well tightened gib key ?
Or did you have the shafts built up & remachined ?

I've just removed one of my heavy SOM flywheels from my Lister 12-2 & have the same sort of damage.
Not measured actual sizes yet.

What do folk think about using Loctite to address this problem ?
I know that Listerdiesel used Loctite on one of the flywheels on his Ruston 1ZHR.

Cheers,
Jim

Hi Jim

It's not "slightly loose flywheels", but quoting Butch (aka 38AC) a Guru of stactionary engines, in reply #180 (https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg100707#msg100707), it says, and I agree, was only slight corrosion.

I think that a loose fly will unbalance the engine, in the way you will notice emediatly.

Sizes where ok and I refit flys perfectly.

Be carfull of "a well tightned gib key" because gib is made of very soft steel, in fact gib are a mechanical fuse in order to shear if something suddnely get stuck (normaly pulley), and must be tapped with the right force - about this issue read Peter Forbes (aka Listerdiesel in LEF): http://www.oldengine.org/members/diesel/Articles/rrchapt6.htm

A few days ago (befor finish the 12/2) I read (I think was Utterpower) about best way to fit flys, and I did like this:
1 - A good clean of shaft.
2 - put some baby powder (yes, baby powder) in the shaft and push flys along.
3 - I left 1/4" (in fact 5mm) as 38AC advized, between outside face of the bearing housing and face of fly (put a 5mm steel rod in gap).
4 - snug gib key, and after a good tap in a long rod of brass with a mallet, to not damage gib.

I think Listers don't need any stuff like loctite - Lister are pure mechanic.

Cheers

Hi Gentles

Today being a holy day (Feast of the Immaculate Conception), the village parish made the traditional Christmas lunch. "Mutton meat a la Bajouquense", a party day not to be missed.

Some photos for those who appreciate "these holy days" ...

Have a good week.
