So what is your intention with them?  How many did you bring in?

I assumed you'd get them up to scratch and out the door to get a return on what must be a substantial investment asap.
Surely the demand for them is there and you could sell them easily for a worthwhile price?
Do you do these on your own or do you have people working for you as well?

We are long-time Lister/Petter distributors. These kits along with hundreds of others are always on offer as well as substantial parts stocks.

If you want a unit professionally finished out and delivered, that can be had via 38AC. If you just wanted a kit for your own assembly and enjoyment contact me directly gary@dieselgen.com.  :laugh:

I forgot to add that the 12/2 is equipped with 8/1 type plugs instead of change over valves. This seems to be a common change these days. Maybe the hut where they made the valves blew over?? ;D

In their more modern versions Lister experimented with what they called odd-fire and even-fire arrangements (in 2-cylinder and 4-cylinder engines). This amounts to the same thing described as opposing crank throws vs matched crank throws (split-twins?).

Would this be the sort of LPW2 crankshaft you had in mind, when using the term even fire.

Yes, that LPW2 crankshaft has both connecting rod throws on the same side of crankshaft and were identified as "even-fire". Odd-fire would have the throws at 180 degrees from each other.

Bear in mind that I am translating and inferring a bit of this information simply from hands on the parts and from observations made on the actual engines. This is not from any written documentation - that seems to be completely absent from the records we have been able to unearth. We do have 100% of the factory records as far as I know, but sometimes this sort of thing will be in memo format and much like the proverbial needle in the haystack.

I use to follow these engines on eBay years ago, and was planning on acquiring one for emergency use. Will the kits be available for the forseeable future?

As far as we can see, no worries about availability of the kits. It is an uncertain world, pricing and delivery costs will vary according to both political and market conditions.
