    This came out of a radio relay jeep, only time a load on it would have been while transmitter keyed. If not keyed load pretty minimal. Might answer question. This jeep had two xmitters and two receivers. Usually on a mountain top or high elevation and captured weaker signals and re transmitted them on a dif freq. But unless squelch broken on a receiver not transmit, long periods of basically idle

    I think you have it dead on there. In the one link talking about the glazing in standby generators, long periods of idle were cited as glazing contributors. I thought you might like that link because of its relation to maritime diesels...



    Like most things in life, a lot of things can cause a condition and unless you are right there to see what leads up to a condition, you just about always have to say "well it could have been ..., of course then it could have been .... too."

    Yes a few things lead to it. In any event it is gasses leaking past the rings that leave the "glaze" behind.

    PROJECTS UNDER WAY. AM STILL WAITING FOR ALL PARTS BU,
    Got enough pieces and parts to rebuild distributor, some were hard to find.
    found that some of the stands holding up the tube that rocker arms on were sort of crappy, got pieces nd parts and rebuilt it, no scoring anywhere. clean and brigh and shiny surfaces for oil passage on all stands..
    still looking for a stand that will not require a ton of modifications to mount engine on and fire it up on stand. all seem to be fine for a chevy???

    Looking good!

    Everyone that I knew that would run their engines outside of the vehicle, all built their own rigs. We use a mobile build cart for our Full Up Power Packs, (CAT 3126 / C-7, Allison Transmission, cooling tower assembly, and hydraulic system) but we had them custom made for our configuration, for a astronomical price. This enables us to run up and function test all systems within a test cell, with only minimal hook ups for the control panel.

    With this pandemic, folks are spending more time at home working on projects it seems. Most shops are running long hours just to keep up with the demand for services.

    I agree, most of my friends are busy modifying their cars at home. Good thing the majority of auto parts and accessories nowadays can be found on the internet.
