Well it seems that I have run into a problem, not sure which way it will go. The bell housing on the 201 is fine. It is a standard SAE #6 with the two bottom holes not drilled, that is easy to cure. The measurements are fine. But the flywheel is special for the mounting of the compressor. It uses pressed in pins in the flywheel that drive a flex plate with grommets in it. There are also tapped holes but they are not in a diameter of a standard SAE flywheel. They are somewhat over 10 inches in diameter, eight holes tapped 5/16. Larger than a #7 1/2 but smaller than a #8. I may have to come up with a flywheel from a vehicle unit, maybe the Luv truck, not sure. Tech at Magnatron has the information been waiting for two days for their answer.
I am installing a 21 kw gen end. I don't want to be limited by the generator and if needed the 201 can be turned up some, maybe a turbo and a bit bigger injectors. I don't think that my use will be too much for the 201 as it is, but don't want to be limited by the generator. I will be using a 4 pole dedicated 120/240 single phase. My use is a shop trailer with the heaviest comsumpsion from a Airco 300 amp heliarc welder. It runs fine on a 50 amp breaker. It will also charge Surrite batteries. The trailer will be totally self contained with solar panels and its own water supply, 700 gallons. The water system, plumbing, electrical wiring is all in now along with the equipment, but not the solar panels and inverter unit yet.
I currently run a Freightliner Condo with deep cycle batteries, inverter, generator and everything but the kitchen sink, so I have some current experience with the systems. See even an ice maker and freezer. The trailer is a 53/102 reefer unit and will have living quarters in it also, will be in it a lot.
I would be interested in info that anyone has on the flywheel situation or other factors involved. The governor seems great, it is set at 1800 now and is staying
in its original location. Trailer will look like a totally stock reefer.
