Lister HA4 engine with 25 kVA generator
« on: November 10, 2018, 09:17:47 PM »
Just to introduce myself here on this Lister forum.
My name is Raymond, live in New Zealand and since Friday I got myself a Lister 25 kVA 3 Phase generator for back up power for our house and for three phase supply for electrical experiments which I do for hobby.
I am a registered electrician and work for the power utility in the greater Auckland area.
The 4 cylinder Lister starts and runs great and still have to get it shifted under our deck and build a housing for it.
I love to get hold of information re maintaining the Lister diesel engine.
At the moment new oil , new oil filters are all fitted including, clean oil the air intake bath filter.
Also I am happy to give advice to other members here on this forum regarding electrical issues.
The generator (alternator) part is Crompton & Parkinson.
