Had a clear out… Well not quite.
Set to last weekend and put the old generator back together. . My lister st 2 startomatic was removed and stored.
My replacement lister st2 came from a hospital and had only managed to clock up less than forty hours from new.
It has a markon gen attached and so far has proved to be fairly reliable.
One thing, with it still sporting its original gaskets it hasn’t been too long to sprout the odd oil leak. That said, a full gasket set is under forty quid and I have two sets.
The old one was stripped to get the crank seal… this was then replaced and swapped into the new one. Since then she has been lying idle and in bit’s. .
After putting her back together, she was listed on eBay for £100. The listing ends in four days but it is already doubled in price. .
Thats not the only thing to get the heave ho…. my unused 9m guyed tower for the old whisper H80 is up for grabs. .
I may even stick the two H80 turbines onto eBay as well.
Mind you, I’m less than impressed with kingspan. After the fitting of the KW3
We are still lacking any input of any substance to our system.
We have an issue with the blades.
The twintex units have been removed and sent back for investigation. .. the turbine had a resonance on slow down that swayed the tower, the height of the tower (on advise) is not tall enough and is suffering from turbulence. … this may be better once the trees drop there foliage…. .failing that some hard pruning may be required. .
The other issue is with the PCB the voltages are incorrect and it shuts itself down prematurely. . It has now been over two months and still no fix. .. mind you. .in the meantime they haven’t been shy in asking for the balance of payment. …I think not!!!! No fix, no money…
Anyway I will leave you with these images. ..the white elephant. .
And the sunrise chasing me home yesterday. ..
