The link to the video - looks to be a  facebook video, I don't see any resource pointing to "Stationary Engine Enthusiast"

Project aside Lister 12/2 - Dynastater disaster striked
« Reply #331 on: July 24, 2021, 10:15:25 PM »
Hi Gentles

Remember I had a restoration aside Lister 12/2 - a Penta 6A, 1971? And the dynastarter was refurbished? (see here: https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg104124#msg104124)

After put it on the engine, all working good, dynastarter firing the engine nicely... after tuning idle rpm, and max rpm, it never started again with the dynastarter.

Tried another battery to see if the issue was from there.... and nothing. Thamn, maybe the dyna have some issue, I think.

All disassembled and... thamn, dynastarter is busted. Worst, rotor had windings destroid. Thamn!

Lesson learned: a few meters of nylon twine in the front copper coils had prevent the disaster. (Think was the full throttle that put centrifugal force in coils, and they just open to the side, and destroy all thing)

A few pics to show the disaster...

And now I have to rebuild it all! All windings.

Take all coils from rotor, search for new ones (or someone who make them), counting turns, make a jig to wind new ones, etc, etc

Hi Gentles

Looking around I find a shop that can make hairpin coils, but.... (allways a but) they dont have 3*1mm flat copper wire, they need at least one old hairpin sample (all busted now!) to make the jig... and if (onother thamn word) I find correct copper wire they will charge... 125+vat for labour.

In other hand found this retailer in Germany (https://www.simon-auto-shop.de/epages/Simon-Auto-Anlasser-Lichtmaschinen.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/Simon-Auto-Anlasser-Lichtmaschinen/Products/AN9098), with new armature, and costs 59,5+P&P. So Im gone order a new one!

And found at same retailer voltage regulator (https://www.simon-auto-shop.de/epages/Simon-Auto-Anlasser-Lichtmaschinen.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/Simon-Auto-Anlasser-Lichtmaschinen/Products/RE1065N).

Will see how to manage it.

Cheers

you might try romaine electric in seattle, the may have a rebuild armature
or at the very least they can have yours rewound, or even provide you with coils.

they are great folks to work with, and they seem to come up with a part for all sorts of stuff from all
over the world.

phone number 425-264-1700 and they are located in kent washington
i know they work with folks form all over the world, and are a pleasure to work with.

also fwiw, a few years back they bought out a rewind shop in southern california, and the women they have doing the rewinds/coils are excellent and the prices are very good.

if you have  a serial number off the case, they can identify the unit and get you a price while you wait in 99% of cases.

did business with those folks for years, and i have never found another company to match their experience, service, or price.

fwiw

Hi Bob

Thanks for your support, but...Im in the other side of Atlantic Ocean.

Customs here (and there too) has a tiny hole net to catch and tax from abroad stuff, and are 24/7 aiming to shot at anything that cross the ocean.

Take a look at the price my keystock arrived from USA (https://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=8320.msg102563#msg102563)

Postage is very expensive! labour is expensive.

Already ordered new rotor, and voltage regualtor.

Cheers

Project aside Lister 12/2 - Dynastater disaster - New armature, new bust
« Reply #336 on: August 14, 2021, 12:25:31 AM »
Hi Gentles

there's nothing wrong that can't get worse! (people sayings)

New armature arrived, and... Its only 60mm diameter (original 68mm), longer than original, and commutater thiner and less segments. THAMN!! (second disaster)

I think i'll have to send it to Pakistan to get fixed. (where craftmen, masters is the word, still exist)

DOUBLE DAMN!!

More money to south!

Cheers

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - New Dyna after all
« Reply #337 on: September 03, 2021, 01:42:17 PM »
Hi Gentles

New Dyna after all, from Germany. Already in place, and old one wainting for better opportunity to be rebuild.

A pic to enthusiasts.

Cheers

PS: Bought also a Voltage regulator, so can get juice from alternator and Dyna.

Another pearl found - a 6/1
« Reply #338 on: September 25, 2021, 07:07:28 PM »
Hi Gentles

Im looking forward to be retired (just joking), but i'm expecting to have more time to dive deep in villages and found lost pearls like the one I found. Another 6/1 of olive oil plant.

The (ancient and wealthy years ago) state still has in front door a royal shield.

2 pics for enthusiasts.

Cheers,
VP
