Listeroid Engines / Forges DeGuilly....Horizontal Boring Machine
« on: July 22, 2022, 12:21:36 PM »
Well, seven years later.....and some effort to un-bury the machine from 'storage table' duty, the FDG is powered up and running. Incentive job was drilling and tapping the end of the crankshaft on a Wis-con V4.....
Heidenhain DRO install is next.....not sure when.....but next. Along with some other general maintenance and adjustments.

Changfa Engines / Chang-chai and ST head, deal? Or no deal?
« on: October 27, 2021, 11:13:01 PM »

It ain't pretty...
Found this, seller was asking $600 said he'd take $550. I saw it run, started right up with the electric starter.
He knows nothing about the ST head, wires are disconnected. Data tag is unreadable except for 2000 which may
be the year built. Is there a stamped model/ serial number someplace?

Worth the money?

In this longer video, the refurbishment Lab can be seen in action. (Note specially cushioned sand lined floors in the 'clean room')

Listeroid Engines / 6/1-8/1 650 VS 850 RPM and Iron VS Alu. pistons
« on: October 26, 2020, 03:55:22 PM »

I've seen the warnings "do not exceed 650 RPM with a cast iron piston", or "if you're intending to run 850 rpm, better have an aluminum piston fitted"....etc.
Could someone please explain this requirement in detail?

Anyone on this forum running their Lister-or-roid on the west coast due to power outage?
I suspect if they were, they'd have already posted here

Indian 'craftsman' working on a 6/1
This one's special, several 'tool tricks' shown in the video as well.

OK, I skipped along thru the horror movie. I see now what this really is. It's a motivational video for all newbies that might be afraid of doing something terribly wrong to their engines. If THESE guys can take one apart, and have it running at the end of the movie, ANY one can do better than this, and expect better results.

Listeroid Engines / Excited soon-to-be caretaker.....
« on: June 20, 2019, 10:22:41 PM »
Just wanted to express my enthusiasm as a soon-to-be owner of a Ashwamegh 6/1 and a Metro 12/2.
I've been mostly a lurker here for probably 12-14 years and never thought I'd be able to actually own a Listeroid, so very excited about
this. The 6/1 has never been run, and the 12/2 has less than 2 hours of no-load run time.
Totally new to these engines, and will have questions for the forum. Any and all advice eagerly accepted.


Thanks
Dan

Listeroid Engines / Weight of 12/2 and ST 10 head?
« on: June 17, 2019, 12:59:29 AM »

If someone has the weights of a 12/2 and an ST10 gen head, could you please share that info here?
I could probably dig around and find it, but someone with that info handy will save a bit of time.

thank you

General Discussion / New posts in an email notification?
« on: February 06, 2018, 03:38:01 AM »

I don't specifically see any option to set email notifications for new posts.
Is that a feature on this forum? If it is, where do I set that?

thanks

Hi Folks,
Haven't  been on here in a long time, mostly due to depression from EPA ban on importing the engines.
I am wondering about the availability of castings and other more complicated? parts like camshafts, cranks, and injector
pumps.
In addition to a fairly complete line up of machine tools, I recently acquired a Horizontal Boring Mill, and I think it will
give me the capability to machine the larger size castings associated with these engines.

My NEXT question is, is it legal to import the castings and parts, and build/ assemble,  and operate these engines in the USA?

Thanks for any insite and info, and please let me know if you might need machining services on your engine parts.
