Title: Container Shippment
Post by: Jetpilot on October 11, 2010, 01:20:12 PM
I have some pictures of a Lister SOM that is being restored.††If you want one, get with DRDEATH.† He is doing the container shippment. I tried to post them here, but I just haven't figured that out yet, so go to my gallery to view them.† It is under Derek Curlee.

If you don't mind me asking "I have some pictures of a Lister SOM that is being restored" Is this an engine that is being rebuilt for you in the UK, prior to shipping to the US?

Is your engine being rebuilt with genuine or Indian parts? because if your using Indian parts would it not be cheaper to source them in the US, and rebuild it yourself.



The reason I ask is because I would like to know is because, does this engine not fall foul of the EPA regulations which have all but stopped importation of complete Listeriod engines. Or is it exempt in some way because it was manufactured way before the EPA legislation came into effect.

These are pics of the engines that a certain individual is rebuilding in the U.K.† I didn't ask if he is using genuine Lister parts, but these are genuine Lister blocks for sure.† I will find out about any parts being used.† I'm not getting the SOM, thses were just some pics to let everybody see the detail this individual puts into the engines as they are being rebuilt.  I am not 100% sure about the EPA regulations, but it is my understanding these are exempt because they can be classified as antique engines.

Looks good enough to me.† Actually it looks perfect.

So let me be the Wanky Yanky and ask the big question.† How much will something like this sell for in your area of the UK?

Perfect!! Na, itís got greasy finger marks under the oil feed pipe and that carpet needs vacuuming.

I'm with bottleveg!  Doesn't it bother anyone else that the lighting for these pictures could clearly have been done much better with a defuser instead of the direct incandescent lighting.... sheesh  ;D

Post by: Jetpilot on October 31, 2010, 10:36:35 PM
Ok, here is some info and a copy of what the person doing these engines sent me about parts used in the rebuilding of these Listers.


"The answer is this. All the parts are genuine Lister, wherever possible. Some parts, such as castings, are no longer available but I have a stock of most of these. Other castings, such as cylinders, would have to come from India, it's the only place left. The SOM parts are not  actually available in India!
Contrary to popular belief, Lister didn't make all the parts for their units themselves. Fortunately some of their UK suppliers are still in business and I'm able to buy batches from them. Some parts I have to have specially made in the UK and France. Others, including gaskets, come from the far east, but they are good regular quality."

He also informed me that regulations apply to engines manufactured after 1986, so these that he does are good to go.  He includes paperwork to prove it also.

Casey Mark is not going to have to worry about what his engines will sell for in the UK. So far people in the US are keeping him busy. These engines are like winning the lottery over here. I suppose we might let Mark sell one or two over there. You know us Yanks. Give us an inch and we take a mile. Peace form the US. Mike DD

 There are a number of 6-1 s here and a few 12-2 s but finding one in hidding may be hard to find. i came across a fan cooled 6-1 or thought it was and seen a few fr1 s.  As for the big foot i have one of them but it is not putting me in the right direction. Lester Rob.

 it would be nice if you could buy a 12-2 on the container but you don,t have it set up that way. do you know what areas in canada these engines might be going to. lister Rob.
Title: Re: Container Shippment
Post by: DRDEATH on November 15, 2010, 07:39:09 PM
Rob I believe there are people on the east side and west side. Mark the builder or mechanic how ever you want to phrase it is very meticulous. If you get one of these it will work and run like it looks. " NEW ". So I guess the old saying you get what you paid for will never be more true. Mike PM me if you need more information
Title: Re: Container Shippment
Post by: Lister Rob on November 17, 2010, 02:46:31 AM
 
 nice to know, if you have a 12-2  left over let me know. if that will happen, my luck is not that good. thanks Rob.

There will be 2 twins on the engine auction you must have seen post telling about it. They will go to the highest bidder.

Post by: CD in BC on February 04, 2011, 07:49:31 PM
The workmanship stands out a mile in those photos: notice that the nuts and studs are not painted, meaning each casting is done separately before assembly.  Not a quick and dirty coat over everything when assembled.

I'd say you're going to get what you pay for in this case, maybe more, and I don't even know who the seller is.
Title: Re: Container Shippment
Post by: Bottleveg on February 04, 2011, 09:48:23 PM
Here's another one. Same colour too.

New to the forum and to listers in general, but hooked on the idea. I've been following the threads of the UK engines being placed on auction. Do you have a list of what is available for bid and what's been sold?

Thanks, Brendan

For anyone wanting pictures for the auction engines it seems they have expired from skydive. I am in the process of getting new ones. Mike

There isn't one yet, that's the point.... I'm sure as soon as the pix are back, the location will be revealed.

Personally, I'd suggest the Lister Engine Gallery, as linked in the news box...

The auction shipement is still planned. The orginal container where everyone bought their own engines will still happen. I just needed to make some changes. I will not affect delivery of either shipement. Mike

There's an old English expression, which I think was translated from the original Latin, which is apposite in this case.


It reads as follows: "Finders keepers, losers weepers" followed by something that looks a lot like "Ner, ner, ner ner ner"  ???

Title: Re: Container Shippment
Post by: AdeV on April 11, 2011, 05:39:18 PM
Just to throw my £0.02 in; I don't mind how many CS's head West (or East for that matter); every CS that leaves these shores make mine a little bit more valuable :) Plus, as I'm finding out, there's literally thousands of them left, scattered about the place. Which makes their current eBay price range (300-1000 or more) even more difficult to understand.
Title: Re: Container Shippment
Post by: 38ac on April 11, 2011, 05:52:54 PM
Just to throw my £0.02 in;

My $.02 was in US currency which means it was only worth about 1/2 of yours. ;D

I hope that my post didnt give the appearance of being a blanket to cover all Brits, It wasnt intended that way. There are also people here that get all burred up when a $200,000.00 1915 prairie tractor sees a shipping container bound for Europe.

Personaly, I could gve a rat, let the bidding begin.

It's one of my buttons.

As a mostly Irish decedent that privileged endowed malarkey runs pretty thin every once in while.  When I hear it here in Hawaii I always want to remark "The next time I ship out of Schofield Barracks would someone remind me that I'll still be a second class citizen when I return?"

The Royal Museum is a gorgeous place with the real stuff just like we say in our text books.  Sometimes it's the very same stuff.  As it is "Over There" I see the hoarding reflex mostly as a joke and just can't help myself.  (I brought back three minis in 75 and still have one.  I'd be buried in it but I just respect him too much.)  And they're being bought up at this time and shipped back to the UK and on over to Japan.  RHD just makes sense!

Back to the coolest diesel engines in the world and how we're going to get them here.  ;D

I'm trying to get an Andoria S-320 (http://listerengine.com/smf/index.php?topic=5515.15) from Poland to England so it can get in the container from England.

It is soooo much fun dealing with someone via Google Translate   :D

We have about 2/3 of the stuff consolidated for some time now but having a real problem identifying the stuff still at Blackpool and do not have any knowledge nor access to the people in charge there (have never been informed of those details). Perhaps we can call on Ade Vickers once again to help with this issue?

I'm still silly busy with work, but I'll see what I can do - drop me a PM or an e-Mail with what you need finding out, and I'll do my best.

I still have my truck, although it needs welding back together to get through a roadworthiness test, then it'll need tax & insurance.... fun & games... and cost of course.

Ade, If you know Keith or others in the know about that storage facility and any arrangements that were in place, please let us know details so we can get any issues handled and those engines moved to Mark's for loading.

Your help much appreciated!  ;D

I don't know Keith, but I do have a phone number for him somewhere. I'll try giving him a call to ensure the engines are still OK at his place.

Assuming they are still there, I'd recommend either hiring Mark to pick 'em up, or use someone like Pallet Line to shift them. I was going to keep my truck but I got an offer on it I can't refuse so, assuming the money comes through, it's gone again.

Keith B. is now in touch with us... he is requiring confirmation from the owners of that equipment that it can now be moved to Mark's. We do not have an inventory of what is there, nor a current listing of who the owners might be... we will correspond further and determine what can be done to clear this hurdle.
