Default Thanks!

Sounds like a great starting point! Thanks. Now I have to figure out how many kilowatts a 300d engine puts out at 2000rpm. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Scott

He is over speeding a 7.5 single phase Baldor motor to backfeed, along with some mag disconnects, all with his utilities engineers blessings.

Here are pictures of my 20/2. I'm running on used ATF. I had a 16/1 that had thousands of hours on WVO.


The flywheels are pulled away from the bock, I was replacing the cam.

I got my eye on trying one of these 10HP DIESEL ENGINE with electric start.
Have not seen any info on anyone using one of these chinese model Diesel engines with wvo yet. I have 10 hp gas 6000watt generator already and I hope to swap out the gas motor and put this 10hp diesel in its place. I dont no how well this motor will take to wvo as it I think it is a gravity feed fuel system so I may have to modify fuel delivery if wvo is to thick to flow smoothly.

Default Had one

Rawvo ... I had one like that. It didn't last very long, about a month. If you belt drive a gen head and gear it so the engine runs slower then 3600 rpm you will be ahead of the game.

Hey thanks for the info akg ... I was thinking of using it for more of a temporary hurricane back up generator and not for 24/7 use. Do you think I could gear and belt drive the 6000wat gen head to this diesel engine at a lower rpm with out effecting the torque needed to keep 6000wat generator head spinning at the right speed under max load? The 6000wat gen head is on a regular 10 hp gas engine now and it look almost like the one below.

Default Need to do the math

Too late for me to figure it out. To slow the engine down you increase the size of the pulley on the engine. Doing so deilvers more torque so even though there is some loss due to decreased RPM some of it is made for in the larger pully. Present this question to the boys over on the Lister Forum.

You will need to join the forum, It is a good one and worth while even though it is still small, lots of info there. Got to go .... Ken Gardner

Wow I was really tired when I wrote that. I had it backwards The bigger pully not only slows the engine down causing a loss in power but there is also a loss of power in the ratio using the bigger pully on the engine. This is a two fold loss so YES a more powerful engine would be needed.

Also, I sent an email to the administrator of the other site about you not being to sign up.

No ..I think you had it right before? A bigger pully on the engine would make the smaller pulley on the gen head spin twice as fast with less RPM's .. Im also thinking there is much more torque is a diesel engine than a gas engine to handle a larger pully with out losing power under load.
