This mob were selling them on fleabay for a while but them stopped. I couldn't remember who had them and searches didn't turn them up.
All depends on getting the terms right.
Thanks for  the link.

I think I'll look at rationalising some of the collection and cash in a few things I have sitting round to A. make space for one of these and B. pay for it so i'm not spending any more on ornaments.  Been a bit over the top lately so got to reel myself in.   :embarassed:

Much appreciated for the info!

Glad i could help, but don,t want to feed an addiction. LOL,  Then i can't talk i have 13 seagull outboards in my shed. So if you get one report back, ok.
And i did see a 7.5kw 3 phase motor, in the Sons,workshop last week, that would go well with a zs195 im thinking.

Are you in OZ?

I'm at Camden on the 0utskirts of Sydney.  It's still Australia here unlike where I came from a year ago.

I'm going to have to sit down and have a good hard think about what I really want to do. Keep buying engines and things and coming up with grandiose ideas but not getting a lot into practice.  Thinking I need to just make 1-2 perfect setups the way I want and get rid of the rest.

Trouble is I keep making mistakes.  I chuck stuff out I later regret and keep stuff that sits around unused. Keep thinking I'm done with something and then have a desire to get into it again and get dissapointed I no longer have what I need.

A Nice, well setup power station would be good and then maybe keep a couple of engines just to frig around with when I get bored with everything that's done the way I want already!  :laugh:

Well i think i might have found the original Australian seller of my ZS195.
And he has them cheap, not as cheap as mine but not too bad.

Those 195's are indestructible !
if anyone is looking for a super reliable beast of an engine, then you should get one of these before the guy stops importing them.
They typically run at 1800 - 2000 rpm when driving generators but man they are loud.
Women and children usually start crying an run away in shear terror.

But they last forever.

I took one of these and slowed it down to 900 rpm after making a few modifications.
At that speed it was much quieter and could still make over 3Kw of generator power.
I basically I turned it into something like a Listeroid CS6.  Slow speed and 3Kw.
My neighbour fell in love with it and bought it off me.
Every now and then I hear the chug...chug...chug of the unit when he runs it.

if interested, here's a video of it before I sold it.

Hi veggie, I love these simple diesel engines, yes they are a bit loud but a decent exhaust system and a sound proofed shed should rectify that.  Love the idea of one of these in my shed scaring away women and children, who have no place there until invited. I might have to buy two to be certain of privacy!  :laugh:
