Sunday's Haul

Recommended Posts

D-17_Dave
No time yesterday to post this but I'm finally through for today. I picked these up (the 2 generators on the right) Sunday. Hope to take 2 and make 1. 20KW Kohler with Yanmar diesel power plant. We use these on our Featherlite trailers and they are almost bulletproof.


The welder I've had for some time but was on my list for some repairs. Gas tank rusted through from the outside, wouldn't make any power. You know, small stuff. I finished it up this morning cept for a muffler. Spent the afternoon replacing the main service breaker panel in my basement and 145 feet of wire that feeds it from my remote meter base. My hands hurt from bending that 4 ought cable. Hope to get some painting done tom. while it's warm. 70 degrees here today. Boy that won't last long. Looks like I'll need some more projects before I get back on the road.:OB):o) Always into something.

Come on Dave. You need to think positive, take one of the Powermax's over to Fastpauls with a box of beer and I'm sure you guys could figure out how to get one to fit. It could be called a Powermax SS.:D:D:D

George, I have one of those diesel projects already started. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=47035&SearchTerms=diesel%2Bengine It's been sitting on the back burner for some time now. With the job change and my schedule there always seemed to be something else more important but I have just recently made some progress on the diesel project by getting my local machine shop to get me one of the last conversion shafts made to hook up the diesel to the hydro stat. I'm hoping for a summer project return for it. But for now I'm trying to get some other stuff out of the way. I got both gen sets up and running today. One has a badly worn engine with a bad injector, the other has a bad turbo, bad regulator on the gen pack and is missing all of the engine controls. The good news is I won't have to do any swapping of parts like the Stator or Rotor. I just need to mount a radiator and ad a belt and engine alt. and swap out the turbos. I should have that done tom. I even have a line buried in the ground to the shop for remote start if I want to leave it stationary. I'll most likely set it on a trailer with numerous varying hookups so it's portable. I've never missed anything out of my sheds but this will get put deep in the shed behind stuff so as to not grow legs. Roy, I was having a bout of CRS. The engine on my welder is an Onan Performer 18.

Dave, If you want, I'l meet you in northern Missouri sometime and take one of those off your hands.;) That'l keep my house up and going, LOL! Especially since I suffered one massive ice storm, and now they say brace for another in a couple weeks. if its the one with the bad engine, I have access to a tractor that will run it, but its not orange, thats the only problem.

Thanks guys, and yes John, we won't mention that either as long as she still cooks them dogs when I'm up that way.LOL BTW, the Yanmar engines are tagged(I just couldn't see it under the paint) 28.6HP natural and 36.6 turbo'ed. I'm certain with a little "extra" help on the pump that you could get 25KW out of this generator.

Oh yes Joe. It'll do about 6kw. Not near enough for the house though. Between the welder and the old 5500 watt Generac I've had for years I was in decent shape with a bunch of drop cords ran through the windows. But boy that was loud and now with gas like it is I can't afford to keep gas lying around. This diesel will handle the fuel setting around longer and be more portable for other needs. I wanted something the wife could just hit a switch and be up and running due to me being gone so much during storm season. Hit the switch and throw the transfer switch and the whole house will be good to go now. I still have the Onan 45kw gas generator hooked up but I'm not around to run it often enough to keep it where it is dependable to start. I think it will soon go down the road.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
