Default Yanmar TS105 Diesel Question

I recently picked up an older Yanmar diesel generator with a TS105C single cylinder Yanmar 10hp diesel (maybe 70's?). It is very similar to the NT65 posted by Ernie and appears to be in good shape. I'm working on getting it running again but have a simple question....do I crank it CW or CCW? I ask because I need to make a handle for it and am not sure which way to machine the slots. Thanks.

Pull the rocker cover, watch the valves as you turn it over, make sure the inlet valve opens and closes before the exhaust valve. If it doesn't, you're going the wrong way.

I pulled the valve cover to figure out the valve sequence and determined that the hand crank spins clockwise and then made a hand crank since the original is long gone. It fired up pretty easily with the hand crank. The generator seems to be making power without any issues and a small load doesn't even phase the engine. The only issue I have is mild surging. I reset the governor per the Yanmar manual I found on line but it didn't make any difference. Is the surging normal for an older engine with a simple injection system?

Nice find, Waterlogged.


Surging in a diesel is usually from air in the fuel going to the injector. Be sure your lines are clean and tight, your filter is clean, and you have no air leaks. Also make sure your fuel tank is venting properly to allow air in as the fuel goes out.

Sorry, Peter, but when you're turning an engine over, the exhaust opens "first", then the intake..."overlap" is when the cycle "starts", but when you're watching it happen, exhaust happens first...
