Busters Gate Jim Hogg County TX - July 1 - 3

Busters Gate Jim Hogg County TX - Friday, July 1, 2016
Morning 76 Degrees, Wind NE at 1 to 2 Mph, Humidity 94%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 102 Degrees, Wind E at 2 to 10 Mph, Humidity 19%, sunny.

Here we are starting the second half of 2016. Good luck with the generator today, no hard shutdowns and we ave learned that the temperature gauge has a high limit shutdown that was set for two hundred twenty degrees. Now that has been re-adjusted to two hundred thirty degrees. The radiator air passages have been cleaned and the water pump belt tightened. Since the last hard shutdown the generator has been operating with the doors open and the engine operation temperature yesterday during the afternoon was one hundred ninety-five degrees.

Busters Gate Jim Hogg County TX - Saturday, July 2, 2016
Morning 78 Degrees, Wind S at 2 to 8 Mph, Humidity 87%, sunny.
Afternoon 100 Degrees, Wind SSW at 7 to 16 Mph, Humidity 34%, sunny.

Operating the generator with the doors open and checking the coolant temperature a few times during the day proved the theory that the closed box was holding in the heat in causing engine coolant over temperature. The engine cut off set point was never reached at any time today. The highest temperature I saw was one hundred ninety five degrees with an ambient temperature of one hundred degrees. A typical Saturday gate wise with just a few in’s and out’s kind of normal Saturday.
