Things I want to Buy / Re: Wanted - Lister LR1
« on: December 22, 2010, 02:20:15 AM »

I am not familiar with the LD, SL, SR or ST engines, but if they are basically the same thing, then yes I would be interested in that.

By the way, for anyone interested, I have a new Changfa R185NM (still in the crate) to trade.

I can't ship them across the border, but there does not seem to be any problem if an individual comes here to pick one up.
Bringing an engine back for personal use does not seem to be a problem.

I saw your fuel line kit, good idea....

You could probably make up a kit for less money using hoses and fitting at a hydraulic shop.
Japanese engines typicaly use BSP.....

Hi Doug,

Typically, hydraulic hoses cannot tolerate Biodiesel. The hose I use is more expensive with a Viton liner and is compatible with all fuels.
(Unfortunately is costs $1.00 per inch)

For Canadian Members...

The second batch of engines is now sold.
I am now taking orders for the next shipment (spring 2011 arrival).
NEW to this batch will be the electric start models.

Engines will be ordered on a reserve basis so book yours now if you want one in spring.

PS: Cannot ship to USA  :-(


Original Lister Cs Engines / Start-o-matic flywheel weight
« on: November 15, 2010, 04:11:29 AM »

Anyone know the weight of a Start-o-matic flywheel for a 6/1 ?
They look considerably thicker than a standard 6/1CS

I suggest mounting the Lister and the Quincy on a pad beside the tank.
Simply tube from  the quincy.... through an aftercooler tube...... to the tank.


1] The engine and compressor are likely to heavy for the tank's top plate and mount feet.

2] The echo and noise from the tank with each firing stroke will be considerable and scary. (I tried this).

It all depends on the size of the system.
For 2kw and less, a 12vdc systems is fine. Cables aren't that expensive.
I agree,.....If over 2kw-2.5kw, the higher voltages like 24 or 48 are more economical and practical.

Lister Based Generators / Re: Listeroid genset anchor scheme

I agree with tijean, if you are going to strap it or bolt it down, then get rid of the rubber.
The flexing with each power stroke will allow the mounts to move. Even a flex of .020" with each bump will eventually ruin the fasteners.

Thanks for the report.
Very interesting that there was minimal carbon buildup.
How are you preparing your oil prior to use ?
Are you blending it with anything ?

1.)  That seems to be a very nice camera based on the video.  What are you using.

B.)  How are you moving the water to the water tank in this second YouTube?


1] Simple Canon digital still camara which has a video feature. (Just a cheapie)

F] It's just a gravity feed overflow tank sitting above the radiator. No need for circulation thru the tank. The system is none pressurized and the thermostat is 190f.

The next two questions:

1.)  What are you using for a muffler.  It sounds very effective.

B.)  What kind of quick disconnect fittings are you using on the PEX?


1]   2" automotive muffler with internal reversing flow. Almost eliminates the exhaust noise.


C] Piping is standard automotive heater hose with "cam-lock" quick connect fittings. (all in 3/4")

Hi Veggie,

Nice system.  My two questions are:

1.)  How much power do these Grundfos pumps use?

B.)  What the Heck are they using for a flexible exhaust pipe?  Shop vac hose? ;D


Hi Casey,

1] They use about 50 watts.

B] I'm using an automotive exhaust flex hose attached to the automotive muffler on my 6/1. Temperatures exiting my muffler are down around 150f.
The hose is rated to 300f. I think the correct term for the hose is "Automotive crush poof exhaust hose".
