Ruston 1ZHR Diesel
More Engine Pictures
One of those days when the weather was fine and dry, and I had a bit of time to get the engine
unsheeted and started.
The fuel in the small tank had to be changed before it would fire, but it ran OK after that.
The only incident was the
loss of the flywheel key in the new flywheel, with a pit stop to replace it.
Another picture from the side. The temporary fuel tank is out of shot, up on the gantry above the engine.
Everthing whizzing around !! Only about 375rpm, but it looks a lot faster. The unguarded
a lot of oil spots about, and the guard would normally be on the engine.
Close up of the governor linkage on the injection pump.
The fine speed adjustment on the other side of the pump. The bend in the threaded rod was there before we bought the engine!
The main (coarse) speed adjustment below the governor and injection pump.
Close up of the big-end assembly, which is quite massive for an engine of this horsepower.
Must add the split pins one day!
The engine stopped with the ring oiler hinged joint just showing in the main bearing filler cap hole.
The engine, off the trolley while work continues.
Another view of the engine, sitting on blocks while the trolley is painted etc.
