View Full Version : Technical question...

1st May 2005, 14:20
Really a male technical question this one...

Now I m living on an island the electrial supply at the hangar is somewhat unreliable so we have a generator for 240v but it's also becoming unreliable.

Any ideas for replacing this old one? (http://arweb.co.uk/aralbums/album12/generator.jpg)

All suggestions welcome.

I think if you connect up a couple of crocodile clips to the nipple rings you might be able to generate a bit from the undoubted perpetual motion.

Just a thought..

Well pw, that looks like a single-cylinder with twin overhead cam generator which is suffering from over-heating. You could try loosening the belt a little and ensure that nothing is obstructing the cams... :O

Do the big ends need checking?

You wouldn't have a problem if you'd bought an Onan (http://www.onan.com/onan/portablegenerators/ProSeries/generatorProductDetail.jsp?prdid=prod60018) :ok:

Like the sound of the optional dolly kit...

Is that the fully works - stockings, basque, mini skirt, etc?

Or something to do with sheep?

Well, she looks fine to me. If you can't get it started, the nipples probably need greasing. Don't overdo the pull starter, a caress is all that should be needed. If she still won't work up a few revs, try reverse, it looks like it might go better.

That's all.

P.S. Generator? Where? :confused:

Maybe the fuel pump isn't pumping as hard as it should be and could do with a good hard priming in order to get everything loosened up?
