Oh, I assure you that I am lost on this light plant. If I can master the fuel system from tank to mixer.... I could have a chance at hearing it run... But so far... Not winning. I have one more fitting I want to buy and try in my current system. After that, if I can't hear it run.... I'm still not sure if it has some weird "full charge" shutoff that is messing with me right now... You know, running 32 volt system at 36 volts...

Casey, did you look at the site I posted earlier this thread?  Sorry about the pics, got busy with other stuff, one thing to remember is these Delcos don't have governors and should only be run with a load (batteries or motor) or it will over-rev(run away).

Already looked at that site. Already know about a load. Tried my fuel system mods this morning, failure, bought more fittings today to add to my misery. Bring on more brass and copper parts!

Casey , I was searching for info on how the fuel system works on the engine and came across this electrical print you might not have

I really am trying to get it to run. Getting the fuel up to the "carb" is proving problematic... I'm on fuel revision 3 or 4 or something... Just trying to get the machine to draw fuel. With check valve and pressuring up the tank to send fuel all but the last bit... No go, but I had leak, so I have more new fittings and going to run copper tubing except for the last 4 inches and try again. Still want clear line so I can see the fuel at the "carb", which if it really was a carb.... I would just be out of tune and not out of luck...

Ps: I think it throws the contractor out at full power, and it's doing fine. Really would like to have 32 volts.... But can't fit four 8 volts under the seat...

There should always be some kind of load on that style of setup. IMO
Even if its just one lightbulb to keep things from running away.

I found the article I mentioned http://www.gasengine...ight-plant.aspx

Yes Alan, I know about running with a load to prevent running away. I just don't have a clue why it won't draw fuel up the line / start (even offer). Might have to see if my buddy can figure this out. He told me if I can't get it running, he can, because he can make anything run. Could make for a mighty interesting bet lol.

You might want to go back to who you bought it from and find out what he knows, where he got it from.

Maybe search some of the old engine sites, forum sites to see what you can find out about them.

 

I saw somewhere that the output can be adjusted, increased voltage, ???

 

There has to be a way to make it work, get it running.
