Original Lister 5-1 CHP Rig
« on: November 24, 2010, 10:29:46 PM »
Lister 5-1 s/n 1991513 prototype CHP system, tube and shell exhaust heat exchanger (splits for cleaning ) on the exhaust piped in parallel with the engines colling jacket,  5 Kva 50 Hz 110 volt alternator, electric start and stop, fuel lift pump, HD angle iron frame.  The engine starts and rus well without known faults and the alternator produces power.  See Youtube "Marks CHP Setup".   It has had a repair to frost damage in the usual place behind the pushrods.    Photos in gallery Millman56.   This rig and a good few more original Lister CS engines will be sold by auction on this forum. The details have yet to be finalised although the general idea is that the auction price will include delivery from the UK to KS, from there it will be up to the buyers to get them home.  Mark.

Well no bids this week. I hope this is not a representation of how this auction is going. The sellers are going to think that getting real Lister's over here is not that important. Mike DD

I cannot speak for any one else, but there is nothing more I would like to have is an original Lister

But, my finances have put all my non-essential purchases on hold for a while :'(

Well interest is building. Received 3 bids today with 2000 being high bid. 3500 for ebay engine helped set a standard. This is the same engine plus generator and heat exchanger. Thank you and auction is about half over. Mike DD

Just FYI about this auction. A deposit is all that is required to win. The remainder will be due when engines get to America. With the Canadian border closed in 2011 the amount of engines to go around is limited. If I seem zealous about selling the engines. SORRY. This may be the only way for engines to come in anymore. Still accepting bids. Mike. DD

I received 3 more bids yesterday for this and I guess the 6/1 on eBay must have sparked some interest. The high bid is up to 2350. This is the 3rd week so at the end of next week I will see if the price is what the seller is willing to sell for. Mike DD

5/1 now belongs to someone in the US. 2550.  Great buy. I will notify you with information on deposit. Mike

It's gone a bit quiet regarding Listers to the USA.
Maybe the bottoms dropped out of the market.
The price was not very high for an original Lister delivered to the states.

I don't think the price has dropped out. This is just the first engine. I think interest will increase. I am still sending photos of all of the engines that people can expect to be run through the auction. If the seller is happy and the buyer is happy that makes my goal. Mike DD

I agree, but it may well be the wrong time of year to be selling, just after christmas and all that.

That's good, I am going to put my Lister 6/1 SOM on Ebay when the market is more steady.
I am going to use my Lister FR1, for it might be better for my needs.
