Wilesco D32 351 0f 500
« on: January 14, 2023, 09:35:58 am »
Recently received the Wilesco D32. My unit is #351 0f 500 Limited Run.
 The D32 had it run for over one hour and there were the no major problems. No leaks however the tachometer did not work. I was not interested in taking the engine apart for it was of little importance to the function of the D32. It would be nice however to have as a cosmetic function.
There is no drain on the water pump, but it is not necessary. The water pump worked as designed and filled the boiler when required.
It was great to have the generator fitted with connection terminals and now easy to work with.
Yes, it is expensive but great fun to run!

Any members out there that have the D32 I would like to hear your experiences.

I've had a couple of D32's Howard, both made in the late 60's, one was a total rebuild (which I still have) the other is with someone else, they are fun plants with lots of gadgets to keep your attention.
