It seems like it would be good to add some of the "specialty" tools too, I'm thinking of the tappet puller and gib puller from George B. at utterpower, but I'm sure there are others.  Fortunately there aren't too many, and most of them are generic.  If nothing else it would be good to list the trouble spots where a specialty tool would be useful.

I originally sold the LG brand engines from GG Automotive. They build good engines. I only changed brands due to someone (or so I'm told) who was on this board previously and didn't have the best ethics in the sale of LG engines. Due to negative publicity of the LG brand I started importing other brands. It was a shame as the LG engines were quite good and had excellent manufacturer support. John Culp's "Dolly" was one of my LG engines from GG Automotive. All the horror stories about importing Listers are true, I've got a lot of them myself. Dealing with Customs is a lot like dealing with the IRS, you never get the same answer or deal twice in a row. For example, I now have to deal with Homeland Security. That alone added $2300.00 to my last shipment, container storage until my turn came for the Vacis x-ray, bomb dog sniff, drug dog sniff, and the x-ray itself.

Well Done Procrustes in tracing these down,

Sure are  "The Dirty Dozen"

What we now need to know is which are the main, reputable suppliers, who are just reselling, and who are assembling parts from other manufacturers and badge engineering. As someone else stated some of these companies are large million dollar enterprises in comparison to some of the parts suppliers and assemblers (and painters)  are 2-bit backstreet hovels.

I was impressed with the Poweranand site, they took the trouble to put a service manual, a spare parts catalogue and a test report on the 8/1 850rpm (albeit from 1979) on their site.   Interesting that this report is fairly comprehensive and contains dimension information of principal parts.

They even have a picture of Rocketboys twin sitting in the corner of its hangar, to reinforce that they are now selling to the US market.

It was interesting to see that some of the part numbers in the Anand parts catalogue were directly lifted from the original Lister parts catalogue. Does this mean, I wonder, whether, there is still a good compatability of parts for intechannging.

Time will tell, as I have several original Listers over here that will benefit a new lease of life from Indian parts.

Finally, I got no replies to my suggestion for a register of Listeroids in spreadsheet form.  Surely someone must be interested in knowing what the popular engines are amongst forum members (and not just the EPA)!

I wonder if the GTC engine (made by Anand Ent.) is the "original" listeroid before some of the improvements were mandated by the N.A. market.  ie: cleaned, counter balanced crank, thermostat, oil /fuel filter etc..   That would explain the lower prices.  I too wondered about those prices.
Stan

Perhaps Atul could explain for us if he is monitoring this site.  I know he is a good guy.

Under comments, could you put under JKSON  -  contract supplier of PS engines for Utterpower et al, or something to that effect.
