Check this link out If it is true you could run a Lister for free by adding a spark plug and way to fire it . this is a DIY kind of thing

I got a 6/1 from Joel and he is a nice guy and has been up front from the beginning on the problems from India. At the same time I was told that the stuff that he was getting was some of the best out there. Well after I pulled sand and slag out of the sump and all the linkage was froze up from what looked like it had been out in the monsoon for a while plus the oil pump was rusted up I was some what disappointed.  I ordered this unit to see if I wanted to import a container or two. I would not want to put my name on the one I received. So buyer beware this is not a fit and finish unit. I do believe If I pay for a running lister that is what it should be, with out me having to rework it. I have imported things from China and have never received this kind of sub standard work. To be fair George and Joel told me that the Indian Lister had QC issues. But was promised that their supplier would do a good job. I understand that once the container in the USA not much can be done. I also believe if you have a problem with a unit Imported from Power Solutions Joel or George are good guys who stand behind the product. MY 3 cents

I most likely have 300 new computer AT power supplies 65 to 100 watt sitting in my warehouse can any one think up a good use in regards to off grid uses that could be used with a Lister.  I hate to scrap them, all have 110 / 220 AC in and 12 and 5 volt DC coming out.  I have a 8000 SF Warehouse with old and new but dated computer stuff and if anyone can think up some uses I would gladly give it away to anyone that can USE it. Share the junk so to speak .

Woo up pardoner all that negative talk of combining a 21 century controller thing with a 1920-type engine I love the idea of being on the cutting edge of obsolescence.

What would all think if we could get an OFF SITE page for the Indian venders for parts and such capitalism at it’s best let them compete on parts would help all us buyers. :D

Years ago we had a HUKA MOMA (That is big for you youngens) air compressor with a starter capacitor that seemed to have a enough stored energy to light my home.  Could you wire a few starter capacitors in some way to pull a large load across the board just waiting to be used as needed ???

With all the talk about runaways a good way to stop a lister is a 2” ball valve on a spring in line with the air intake, if the rpm gets to high the controller sends a signal to trip the valve to close. No air no combustion. With a programmable controller that is under 30 bucks you could do a lot of things and if the controller goes bad I can come up with that kind of money.  ;D

With all the talk about a Bike computer and how cheap they are does anyone have any idea if there is something like that out there that has some sort of interface to a basic stamp. It could be used for auto shut down for a number of things. Such as heat, too many rpm lose of rpm, lose of voltage exc., a basic stamp is $15.00 and a basic program for it to do some of this stuff would not be a big deal to program in. Any Ideas ???

2 kw more and no shipping. It would be a good extra unit to have if it is any good.

Greg ;D

Does any one use this head or have any info on it. I am thinking it could be a good backup unit if the ST head goes down. You can buy one for $289.00 shipped. it only has a 1" shaft so does it come with a set of  Micky Mouse ears or what.  ???
Thanks Greg  ;D

Thanks for the info that would be an option at this point I just want to test the Lister Clone To see how reliable they are and if I can sell power back that is an added bonus.

My thinking is I can get waste motor oil for free and I want to see how the Indian Lister will do on the 24/7 program. With normal oiling and such. I was considering importing a container or 2 and if it holds up I could see my self-doing it. As such why not sell back some of the power to the grid I was under the impression I need to be at a steady 60 cycles to do that. I am still checking into it but that was why the 60 cycle question.


Lister Based Generators / External regulator V Governor as regulator
« on: December 08, 2005, 01:26:12 PM »
Hi all this is a great forum. I am an engine guy not an electric guy so this may be a dumb question. When a ST gen head hits 60 cycles and an extra a load is applied to the lister the governor try’s to compensate so you get a flux in the 60 cycles because the governor is a little primitive in response it can take a short time to compensate. Now I read Rocketboys mechanical fix and that would seem to work well but does some one make an exturnal regulater that would regulate, say 62 cycles down to 60 so I get no change at all. So I set the Lister to produce 62 cycles and the regulator keeps it at a constant 60 so when extra load is applied no change. I like the fact that the ST head does not have an internal regulator as it could go bad and then you are off line until you fix the head. With an external regulator if it failed you just disconnect it and you still have power using the governor to regulate. Buy the way I got my Lister from Joel and George @ Power Solutions Nice guys all the way around and George answered all my questions even the dumb ones. Thanks George and Joel

Well I will be using waste oil to run the Lister so my cost for that is nominal as it is for all intensive purposes free. I am thinking of using the heating element in the ele hot water heater powered by the lister just to keep the heat up to the 180 to 200 degrees so I can blow it in the house with the blower of my furnace by way of the heat exchanger. When it is not cold out I can shut the electric elements in the hot water tank off. And use the tank as cooling only in an open or closed system. I will play around and see what can be done as a test. Thanks for letting me bounce ideas of you all
