As LITD outlined it preheat the coolant.
Basically, I have been able to start the 803 without glowplug preheat.
to ~ -5°F so far. Wired independently from all other functions and bring the block temp to ~ +150°F on startup.
A few additional details in case it's of help/interest.
The 803 batteries are set up inside the shop, so to power the aux tank fuel pump I wired an external plug ( to one battery for 12v), using an extension I can connect to the outlet on the pump box. ( common plug , so extension can easily...
Found a 73 us gallons reefer tank. Built a stand so I could load on a trailer with the skidsteer when needing refills. Quick disconnect before the pump for the 803 and quick disconnect after the pump for fuel nozzle. Put about 60hrs on the set so far. Aux pump kick in at 1/4 tanks and...
Another thing I noticed is that before today's fix , in order to get the hz to spec I had to backup one of the governor screw so that I could turn the RPM knob. - pic 1, - after adjusting the IP, the freeplay between governor lever stop and screw is equivalent to the amount I had unscrewed...
Went back to TM and shop manual.
- No blockage on air Intake side
- reviewed IP install step.
- marked current position of IP , loosened retaining nut and rotated all 4 IP ~ 1/32" clockwise ( see pic for before and after)
- torqued everything back to specs
Powered up the set...
Guyfang, please see pic attached.
-No load 61hz set runs at 1815 rpm
- fuel shutoff, engaged /disengaged
- rpm/hz lever ( at this setting , maintains hz from 59.5 to 61 between no load and full load)
- IP position ( installed with shut off lever in off position and rotated counter clockwise...
Thanks guyfang. I knew I had to slow down last night, so I put the tool down and started typing instead :). I did not touch the droop adjustment myself but I can tell that the plug had been removed a few time ( paint gone and took mark) . Was very careful to follow the iP reinstall and...
changed all filters, rubber lines. Set not smoking at any load when running and not smoking when bogging down. Will take the hard line out. Agree it has to be lack of fuel or air. Was hoping it was something you guys may have dealt with before.
Took all 4 IP out , soaked, cleaned reassembled. All four were "seized in varnish" for having not run for 7 years or so , I'm not equipped to pressure test, but metering level and plunger were moving freely when I reinstalled them
Recently got the 803 running.
Put approx 18hrs run time in the last week performing various load test. Have access to various 5A, 10A , 20 and 23A 240v load. I was able to bring the load to 60A - 115% - Once and set ran fine. Problem is I can't do it consistently. If I try to step up the...
