  1. Hi Jordan. Would like to purchase a 3VSHM head gasket from you to carry as a spare. My number is 07495057403. Pete Duddigan
  2. We'll, it all runs ok. Gotta wire in the starter battery alto next. Advice welcome. At 495 engine rpm the intermediate drive runs at 890rpm and the alternator pulley runs at 3065rpm. Tested all speeds with a cheapo Chinese digital tachometer.
  3. Haha. Great ideas. Truck horns it is๐Ÿ™ƒ
  4. Thanks for advice. Heed taken. Funny you should mention air con....๐Ÿ˜ƒ and an air compressor. Don't know why, just fancy fitting one. The Ruston has a spare pulley running from the camshaft, used to drive the water pump.
  5. I'll ignore Magnetman. Bet he's a Bah Humbug character. Of course the paint will come off, who cares. As for the bearings they are skh and will only be spinning at 1200rpm. They'll see me out. FYI there are two alternators. Both alternators are clockwise running and fans run in correct direction.
  6. These pulleys will up the alto speeds to 6 times engine revs. Awaiting v belts to arrive. Made the adjustable pulley carriers to suit. What d'ya think?
  7. That's what I meant by initiative๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  8. Great to read these stories. Using initiative to create a working idea.
  9. Great. I may run an extra alternator in that fashion later on. Many thanks๐Ÿ‘
  10. There's nothing like using your ideas and creating something that works. Using the flywheel is a good idea but I'll stick to my plan to up the drive speed via pulleys. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and knowledge. I'll let you know how I get on๐Ÿ‘
  11. That'll give an alternator speed of 5000rpm on tickover, a top speed of around 17000. No thanks. A larger pulley on alternator would reduce this but I'm not going that route. The belt length would be silly. I'll prob up the idler to 200mm, giving an alto speed of 4000 plus at cruising and a max of 7500
  12. Yes, my thoughts too. I'm going to try it, proof in the pudding and all that. I could run from the flywheel end but the flywheel is 550mm diameter.
  13. I can up the ante to obtain 3000rpm at the altos at cruising revs. The Ruston Max's out at 1500rpm so max alto speed would-be around 7500.
