-Start-0-Matic Items
« on: May 16, 2019, 11:31:31 PM »
Hi, Folks-
  I have recently acquired two Start-O-Matic Lister engines (8/1 @ 850RPM).  These are engines only.  I am looking for Bases, Generators, Controls, etc. ---- anything associated with the Start-O-Matic system.  I know that I can set them up as regular Lister 6/1's or 8/1's, but I would really like to restore them as original Start-O-Matics!  Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks!

Hello queenofjacks
I do have some items from my1953 6/1 start-o that  are not in use. My 6/1 is belted up to a PMG.
I have the following:
Control box
24V solenoid valve lifter/fuel cut-off mechanism
2.5KW fat boy generator with it's flywheel pulley
maybe some other bits, I would have to check.
Have not previously thought about selling, as the data plate numbers on the base plate all match. Thought "someday" I would get it all working together. Rebuilt the engine to run a PMG, and..........so much to do, so little time. I am getting up there.
Hesitating to even put this out there, as
you are in Florida, I am on an island off the coast in British Columbia, Canada.
Shipping would likely be a killer
PM me if interested
Cheers
Hugh

HI, Hugh-
  Thanks for the reply.  You're right -- freight would probably be a killer!  However, if you could give me an approximate guestimate of what the weight and size (1 pallet?) might be and the shipping point at your end - I'll crunch some numbers and see if it might be doable.  Down here, we have most of the big name freight companies ( Yellow or YRC, Old Dominion, Fastenal, AAA  cooper, etc.).   I'm in Ocala, Florida.
Also, could give me your asking price for everything?  We might be able to work something out.  -- Thanks and Cheers,
