Everything else / Joe cell?

I sort of stumbled onto it while browsing the web.  Do a search on google and google videos and it turns up a lot of stuff.

Run your car on water kind of stuff.  The videos make me wonder though.  Folks went through some trouble to do hoaxes...

Listeroid Engines / 12/2 vs 1/14

This'll be for back-up power generation and general piddling around  ;D

Anyone have any input and reasons.  I'm familiar with the AL piston, RPM of each engine, oil pump, fuel consumption, simplicity plus the DI vs IDI etc. Lot's of fun to be had searching this forum!

It would be great to hear from someone who has had direct experience with each.

Listeroid Engines / Hello from Mid. Ga.

I've been reading the forum for about a week or so and decided I'd post a hello.  I'm your basic tinkerer with a small backyard machine/welding shop. (Mostly hobby stuff for my own enjoyment and making stuff work/run!)

I've had an interest in Listeroids for a few years now since discovering them on the internet. Fortunately, I'm in the process of moving from an urban area, (I'm in Warner Robins now) to a rural area (Schley County) and I hope to get a Listeroid genset for back-up power and just watching it run.  I sort of rediscovered the Listers after doing some research on off the shelf back up generators.  3000 hours just doesn't sound that great and I'd hat to have a 3500 rpm screamer running all night and day if I really needed it. I really think a Lister would be the way to go.  I'm also pretty interested in fooling with some WVO in the future.

I really enjoy looking at, and listening to, the videos of these motors on the internet!

Anyway, just wanted to say Hi.

Any pros/cons of single cylinder vs twin?  I'm thinking that a single has fewer parts so there's less to crap out.
