CS SOM collected today !!
« on: September 27, 2008, 07:32:36 PM »
I now feel proud to be a fully paid up member of the CS owning fraternity !!  Today I travelled down to near Winchester from Worcester to collect my recently purchased Lister CS SOM.  The engine was running upon my arrival and was a delightful sight and sound !!  It is a totally original SOM unit , the seller purchased it from the farm where it had been installed from new. Consequently it has the original cooling tank , fuel tank etc. All the electrical control gear is intact and has never been tampered with.  Even an original Lister exhaust pot is with it , which is VERY effective and weighs enough to need 2 people to lift !! It has had a top end overhaul , just rings and a valve regrind were required, the rings as more of a precaution. The bore & piston were almost indistinguishable from new apparently !! Cosmetically it has a very appealing patina with the original paint being in remarkably good condition. So , I shall just degrease and leave it as is.

So begins my CHP plant project !!

Pix will be taken as I unload next Tuesday , I will share those images with you then.

Hello Men,
 I'm a "newbie" to this forum. It has been very educating to go through the information here.  ( Still Reading...) I am very amazed to see the genius in a lot of you. I started this little itch of mine a couple of months ago by accompanying a friend to a energy expo. Saw a green engine looking thingy all by itself with a blue generator of some sort sitting near it. Next thing I know...., I'm tearin' down this  6/1 Prakish. I bought one of Mike Montieths GM 90's ( 6/1's) yesterday from a guy that posted it here.. Wife, rode with me 550 miles round trip on Thanks Giving Day to pick it up. Mike M. lives near me and he advised it to be a good deal for the price. Anyhow,...She's sittin' in the barn now, waiting for some tinkering.   

 I just wanted to say hello to all, and Thanks
for all of the advice given here.
