Original Lister Cs Engines / New CS released
« on: April 01, 2008, 11:39:26 AM »
Thought you'd all like to hear Lister are releasing the CSMF. Its a CS Multi Fuel engine. Based on the old CS design it has a 4 vlave head, spark plug and burns petrol, diesel, kerosene and gas. A little like the military engines. Could be a wise move with the price of fuel now and the engine is going for EPA emissions testing too.

It will start at 8HP single and end at 18HP single and then start at 16HP twin and end at 36HP twin, all rated at 650RPM. Bosch have a new injector and there is a revised oil filtration system comprising of external spin on oil filters and a small pump that allows it remove engine oil while running and draw in fresh oil to extend service times. Just like the marine engines.

Will pass on more as I hear it.


Generators / ST sinewave distortion figure

Does anyone have the sinewave distoration figure from an ST alternator they run, or measured it?

I am trying to get a feel for what is the norm and what is poor.

Does anyone know if the Changfa engines can be rebored and the crank reground, or is it a case of replace the cylinder liner and crank when they become worn?

Could anyone who has an Injector part number for their clone CS engine please post that number here. I want to see what Injectors are common and used on different HP engines.

Listeroid Engines / JKson quality - Any stories?
« on: March 04, 2006, 08:30:58 PM »

I am trying to research JKson engines and would like to hear about the hours you got on yours, and what failures you have had. I am especially interested in the finish of machined parts and the bearing life.

To kick start the thread, I can offer this..........

6-1 engine built Dec 2005

Oil pipes feeding main bearings badly bent and distorted
Bolts placed by man with large hammer i.e bent
Casting sand - typical
Timing off
Arrived with old engine oil - ran in with this?
.5mm hop in flywheel - Excessive?
Main bearings, TRB's cheap junk - Will be replaced on first decoke.
No failures, this was a new engine.

Thank you gents,
