Re: Tank Heater???
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] No, the Jimmy really ran pretty good....even on startup. I have seen them slobber quite a bit though. So will Cats if you run them slow and cold. I do a LOT of work for healthcare, both thermographic surveys of the power system, and generator testing. I have one client that takes eleven days to inspect...huge complex...about ten generators on multiple power zones. They just installed twin Caterpillar V-16's in a paralleling arrangement. An awesome setup. Their oldest one is a FAirbanks Morse 1200 RPM in line NA Diesel. An oldie but a goodie. I just love to run that old chucker.
Actually, the Jimmies are going to disappear. The old two-strokers can no longer meet emission rules, and they have a new four-stroke Jimmy now. If the truth were known, the two-stroke engines follow the load better because they fire twice as many times. Well, back to my oil heater search......[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
