Well Bob, here you go. It might be interesting for some one. At least it is for me. Learned a lot last years, thank you all. Without this community I wouldn’t have made it so far. Even worse, I would never have actually started.
The green line is going up around 15:40, that’s the genny, and it looks it is sinking now. Gonna take a look.
Motor is a Yanmar clone 400 cc around 8 hp, electric motor 1500 rpm 7,5 kW and some measure electronics.
Aircooled engine inspired by Matt and others here. My first thought was watercooled (Lister HRW2 is still waiting to get fired up) because repair is very simple. And for the shop, if everything is standing inside the heat is right where it should be, the noise is something else.
Gasifier is based on Joni’s design, with a dropbox under , from there in a vertical needle felt filter.
Today I pulled to hard and zinc was melting on the outside of the dropbox, and he is hungry, totally empty after half an hour.
You can hear the difference between diesel and wood. Woodgas is much softer, not the diesel knock. Maybe you all know it already, for me a nice experience.
Yesterday I noticed in the short run that woodgas is not as smelly as diesel, so I decided to build a charcoalfilter after the exhaust. Good days bad days. Today was my lucky day. The granulat is a left over from some filter installation I build some years ago for a cnc lasercutter. Doing a great job! And it can be burned again!! Nice recycling.
Well just started and I hope there is more to come.
