Never been much support for those engines and aout all of it went away when they were banned from import. There us a fellow who sells parts on Ebay for certain sizes, mostly the 195s. You can also search Alibaba and deal direct with China.

You might try these folks down in GA. I have bought from them before, and their service was always good, and the the parts received were of good quality. They seem to be mainly supportive of the Yanmar clones, but you might try them anyway.

My only contact for the Changfa's dried up years ago, and he was unable to get any more parts.

You might also check with Utter power?

good luck, and report your findings.

The 195 is a great engine if you know what to look for when buying one

I just picked up a twin cylinder version of a changfa. I'm wondering if anyone has seen one like it. Apparently it can use some parts off of the changfa r175 but I'm not sure what. It's labelled a 275 wan for what it's worth. Here is the YouTube video the Po posted.

What does the genset use for a throttle actuator? I'd like to use that one a project of mine. Are there any part numbers on the actuator?

Thanks,

Kevin

It was set up that way when I bought it but I looked on ebay and they have those kits available. It is some kind of electronic speed controller with actuator.

Well I wanted to edited my post to add this link for the electronic Controller but cant seem to find the edit button. The controller is similar to this one:

No problem. I can't vouch it's performance as I haven't had a chance to put a load on it yet. He couldn't put a load on it as he didn't have anything that was 220. He just demonstrated basically what you see in the you tube footage. I'll probably hook a welder up to it and see how responsive the actuator is.

I picked it up in a snow storm and wrapped it in plastic to keep it dry. I'm waiting to get past these oddball snowstorms to unwrap it.

I had not heard of these engines before, so I did a bit of reading on the ol' Interweb.
They sound(ed) great! For instance this description from a satisfied buyer:

"The engine comes with a complete tool kit, which seems to include everything you would need to disassemble and rebuild the engine while in remote areas. It includes a variety of hand tools, a flywheel puller, spare fuel injector and fuel filter, piston rings, cylinder head gasket, valve lapping tool and 2 grades of valve grinding compound, and various seals and o-rings. The kit also includes a surprisingly well wrote manual, with specifications for all the diameters and clearances for the internal parts, which I assume is there just in case you need to fabricate a replacement item. I hope I don't need any of this stuff any time soon!"

Now I kind of want one!

I wonder if they are available in Canada...

Yes, They are still legal to import into Canada last I knew. If you rup to it you can import one yourself or there is a fellow that runs a business called "just live off grid" Last I knew he had a few 1115 LaiDong engines which are top of the line.
