I like it, I'm pretty committed now I think. The guy in WI got back to me and quoted me a pretty hefty price for the diesels he has. It would be much cheaper (and a higher quality engine) I think to pick up one of the 1115's in Ontario on my next fishing trip with my dad up there. Just have it shipped to where our buddy has a cabin up there, disassemble it somewhat, and bring it in as parts.

+1 what Glort said.

The Chinese 1115 engine is a beast and very reliable.
They lend themselves very well to alternative fuels like chip oil because of the Indirect Injection heads.
The injectors have a bigger injection port (one single hole usually), like a Listeroid.
If cared for, the 1115 will probably outlive the average human. Parts can still be found with relative ease.

I just got off the phone with the chap in WI, apparently they are importing these as pellet mills. The horizontals are hooked up to a belt driven mill on a steel frame and being imported that way. How is this possible?

Here is their website: http://www.pelletmasters.com
Look under all products, pellet mills, diesel powered.



So what were their prices on the engines alone?

Very interesting.  I'd also be curious to know their prices for the China Horizontals, and what sizes they have.  My 1115 needs a companion, and Chippewa Falls is right on the way between Minneapolis and my hometown in Northern WI.
