12/1 giveaway
« on: May 27, 2011, 08:11:56 PM »
  I have a Power Line 12/1 1000rpm I purchased several years ago to go over and make into a generator set.  My back has been bad for about 13 years now and it's obvious that I won't be able to get to it.  This one will need to be gone through for sand, voids (flywheels), idler gear and rocker arms plus what ever has degraded during the sit time.  It includes the engine, muffler, flat belt pulley and manual/tools set.  If you can pull up in front of my carport and load it up and drive away, it's yours.  I want to see it go to a home where it can do some work.  I'm in North Central Florida.

WOW!!!

I live on the complete other side of the country (and ocean) or we'd know each other in the morning..  What a screaming deal!  And on Friday.  "Honey, We'll have to baptize the baby next weekend."

Who says Christmas only comes once a year.  Great move.

Maybe next time we'll have a Lister Engine Forum raffle. ::)

Come On!

This has been on this site for 24 hours and it's still available?

What's going on that I'm missing?

bitsnpieces1:  This is scary.  Is it crated as well?  Cause I'm really close to jumping into the water.

I'll take it!    Personal message sent.      What equipment will I need to get it on my trailer?     Please contact me.

I have one person (Houston, Texas) who contacted me once.  Haven't heard again.  I got the crate sides pulled off but no furthur.  They are still here and could be put back on.  Only thing missing is the oil bath air filter.  It makes my heart ache, but, i'm not going to be able to do anything with it.  I'm having to reduce my things by a lot.  Rather than fuss with trying to sell it I'd rather get it to a good home.

Got another nibble.  Will get back with you.

It's really first come, first serve.  Best bet seems to be from Texas.  I can wait a bit for it to go, so no incredible rush.

I could probably come as soon as this week if you would like.      I'm pretty well open.

  Ok it does have a home.  It'll be going to Texas, for good purpose.

I'm the other Texan who inquired. I just couldn't justify (to my wife) $500 in fuel and three days on the road for this. If it had been just a little closer...........
