Lister Start-o-matic 2.5kw help to preserve its life
« on: February 16, 2020, 05:50:46 PM »
I have a lister 2.5kw SOM, it been sitting for a while now and done very little, I give it a fire up now and again and have just routed the exhaust out the side of the garage,

I have this weekend been trying various mounting methods but it sits best on its wheels on the wooden frame I made, I have moved the control panel from the frame to the floor as it was vibrating a bit as it was also on anti vibration mounts,

I have after reading a few posts on here wonder if I should be doing anything the keep the old girl running for as many years from now as it has done up to now, some of the wiring could probable do with a tidy up, I thought I waould ask here before I go doing anuthing I should not.

Here is what I have
set up by chrismac2012, on Flickr

There is a wire bridging the earth and negative terminals should that be there, the metal conduit does not like this when its accidentally brushed against the positive terminal, but the generator should be in its final spot a while now so no big issue there.

The inside is a bit dirty with one yellow wire in particular having suffered from over loading/shorting as it has melted a little, how much work should I do in here,
