  1. Underloading is a big issue, particularly on smaller systems. Incorrectly sized loadbanks (or none at all), or gensets that are just too big for the job. Regardless, they should be run up to full load regularly to keep the engine in good shape. With gas fueled sets, we have 100's of engines in the CSG fields, offering +99% availability. Engine life has been very good.
  2. @symsy that shit is called Tectyl 506. It's in an aerosol can.
  3. I think the fan is just a high zinc diecast part. When I replaced mine I tooled around with the old one, and it didn't show characteristics of mg. Check it by putting some white vinegar on it. If it reacts, it's mg. Most of the housing models are mg. You can lightly bead blast the fan. I've got a can of the sprog that was applied post casting. I'll send you the name of it. You can get it from supercheap. As for the mg housing, you need to put a phosphate coating on it, else it will continue to tarnish. Then you can paint it.
  4. I flew from Singapore to KL, and back to Singapore the other week on a Silkair Max 8. On the way back to Singapore 2 days later we encountered some seriously rough turbulence. The next day, the same model crashes. Hmmm.
  5. Are you after the shifter tower, or just the internals? I have a complete factory shifter kit in used but very good condition. I only removed it to install a factory short shift.

    If you want to get rid of that spare wheel, PM me. 👍
  7. Thanks mate. I'll probably get my dad to pop over and pick it up. I'll be in touch soon.
  8. Darien, if you still have the spare wheel, I'll grab it. Stew.
  9. Maybe you can explain that to some of the dudes I work with. Everything is a 5 minute job.
  10. I design gas powered gensets for wellsite service power in the CSG industry. If you want to discuss this at any time PM me. It's not as straightforward as you might think though.
  11. Let's have another look at it after I get back from Bathurst. There's a few things that I want to check.
  12. @Mttel, @g_match A few of us do go to C & C Unley occasionally. But we often prefer to go driving. If you're interested in joining in on one of the Sunday morning drives, PM me, @LeeM or @AndrewW for details.
  13. Even though I did solder the wire from the old socket back on to the fuel pump power wire. Twice. 🏆
  14. Thanks mate. I'll let you know when the old boi is going to drop in.
