Not slow or cheap.

I have used some of these fab little motors made in Italy part of the Duetz AG group now.
These are not bic lighters like the Yanmar clones from China.

Hard to fit a Listeroid on the rear of a go-cart..........
That would kick ass, a 10hp diesel go cart, maybe with a torque converter drive-
I love the smell of diesel smoke in the morning!

Not so sure about that....

They are a little bigger and heavier than the Yanmar clones.

they are great little engines, i worked on them 25 years ago for the local distributor, H&S rentals in gaithersburg, md. these engines held up very well in a rental situation (ie: no oil changes, idiots running them ect..) looks like they have updated them a little & they dont weigh that much, that 10 hp may weigh 250 lbs. & i'm sure the retail price is more than he has listed. scott r.

I wonder what the time between rebuilds might be for one taken care of?  Might it be possible to get good value from a high speed diesel?

I can't say for sure, but the air filter on my EL300 A-R Kubota diesel, 4hp, liquid cooled 2000rpm, was marked 4910hrs. The 'Bota came from a flashing arrow sign, with an alternator bolted to it. Still starts in the summer without glow. I have no idea if it was ever rebuilt, but it doesn't look to have ever been apart. If it was, someone painted it afterwards. I figure that's pretty reasonable for a 300cc single, and it's far from dead yet.

 I also have a MDJA Onan diesel, one cyl liquid, hours unknown, a bit tired, however it came from a small reefer, and has a centrifugal clutch on it to allow idling, so you KNOW it ran a LOT of hours. Holds 5-6 liters of oil I think.
   

   My own truck has a 4 cylinder Isuzu diesel, with an estimated >10,000 hrs on it (550,000kms), and it is also getting tired, however it still starts instantly warm, and gives me 45mpg in the summer.

 Personally, I believe it is very possible to get good value from a high speed diesel.

That said, I still want a Lister 6/1 !   WAY more cool than a high-speed diesel.  8)

Hard to fit a Listeroid on the rear of a go-cart..........

Lets see.........that would be........."a few" power strokes per mile at 650 RPM........

I dunno but I think one would be much happier and look more dignified driving a Lister auto truck....

It would certainly be a safe speed
