 Hi Bob,
Unless I missed something, entirely probable Gary answered a question as to why he didn't expand his web presence and update his web site with by saying he didn't want or need unwanted attention to his clone parts business. 

Truth of the matter is interest in India engines is just about done due to low cost solar, EPA, quality issues etc as the fellow at Boltan Equipment will soon find out.
Another large factor is I would guess that fully 90% of people who bought Listeroids never did anything useful with them and they are just decorations in the shed or garage. A lot of people are tired of looking at them and there are quite a few for sale, often at bargain prices.

Gary is well, just spoke with him yesterday via email.  The subject of this forum wasn't breached, I have no insight as to why he has left.

Gary at Diesel Electric Services. Sadly he does not post much here anymore, not because he is disinterested but because the US law has made it illegal for him to advertise servicing of engines that no longer meet the government emissions standards.



Gary has his reasons for not being on here much but that isnt one of them as it is entirely legal for him or anyone else to rebuild or sell parts for an older diesel engine and advertise those services. Certain manufacturers have made deals with the EPA where THEY will not supply remanufactured engines that do not meet current regulations and they must destroy and cores that are turned in to them.  These manufacturer deals do not affect the aftermarket in any way.

It is always a good idea to think that customs is NOT staffed by idiots. Yes they know it is an engine converted to a compressor that is circumventing the law, which is different than breaking a law. But the laws were written by them and the burden of proof lies with them. Yes you ship the conversion parts in a separate shipment, then both shipments are entirely legal.

Pretty sure that Gary at Diesel Electric Service in Lyons KS would have them. He posts here as dieselgman but it's been a while since I have seen him post anything.

Just a little helpful Timken bearing information.
Timken sold tapered roller bearings either as individual cups(aka races) and cones (aka bearings) or as sets of both. Sets carried thier own part numbers that do not coenside with the cup or cone numbers. Also their are sets that contain cups and cones that are not available as separate pieces for a variety or reasons.  Some have special I.D. some have special O.D. some have special fit to give "X" distance between the back of the cone and the front of the cup.
Thus the suggested 414 set does not contain a 414 cone and it is possible that Bob's combww2ination of parts could have only been sold as a set. Somewhere I have a complete catalog that would give Bob the answer but could not lay my fingers on it this AM :(

 The big end of the rod uses the same split babbit bearing.that was user in the CS lister. 
India engines very in detail from heavily modified and simplified to exact copies or as some of us say, clones.

 As Bruce said I don't recall any TRB main failures being reported here, never seen a bad one in the shop.  Matter of fact I have only experienced worn out mains once and that was on a Lister 6/1 CS.  None the less if one frets the India TrBs are set of Timkins or similar quality is not a whole lot of money.

 You will never see it happen unless emission regs for all diesel engines are relaxed

 I didn't bother to read all the fine print but what burns me about Ebay these days is they allow Chinese sellers to list items as located in the USA because they all are shipped to a USA based center where they are immediately shipped back out. You can bet your bottom dollar that that a buyer is responsible for all duties, taxes etc etc which means also being responsible for the item being legally importable.  Those engines are not legally importable period. That does not mean that a few haven't slipped through the cracks,, he'll if a chance to take with a lot of money when new old stock pre ban engines are easily obtained. I just bought a band new old stock Changfa 1115 for $300

Read the fine print. The mills are shipped direct from China. That means it must go through customs, are you willing to risk that the engine will slip through? If not you get to pay US Customs to destroy it.

Always pays to check ebay for such. These are listed on EbayUK but are located in the states. Shipping might kill the deal for you but my motto is if Sleeman is the only source I don't need it.

And one located in the UK
