If things ever get back to normal I will be able to finish this engine/generator and get it into operation.      It seems I spend all my time fighting the drought and heat stress trying to keep my cows alive.      We have had to spend THOUSANDS of dollars buying hay during the time they should be grazing on on green pastures.       I still need to find the right belt pulley for the gen head.      Who has the best pulleys?      Anyone want to buy a couple of cows?

My original Lister 8/1 is almost home, made it into the port of Houston last week.  I am out on the road for 8 days and will be picking it up when I get home.  Then the fun begins, build a base, figure out the cooling system and belt the generator head up.  I am getting the pully for it from George at Utterpower.

Hopefully the drought ends soon.

Folks are coming in to NM to buy alfalfa for their TX herds, but the drought is hitting us hard this year too.  Lower Rio Grande conservancy district cut off irrigation water July 1, we still have it in the Middle Rio Grande district.  But even with irrigation water the heat is stunting alfalfa growth.  Yield is about 60% of previous years.  Only good thing about the drought is weeds are not growing.

Cowboy, I hope next year will be better.  I bought two pulleys from George at Utterpower and they were really nice.  Sounds like the 12/1 should be set up to pump water on the farm.

Jetpilot, good luck with the Dursley 8/1.  You are making alot of us really jealous.

I will take pictures when I get home and see if I can post them.  Should be home sometime on the 27th.

We could probably add some Anand (Powerline) product to our next order if that was of interest to you. Not certain we can get them to cooperate with all the hoops that must currently be jumped though.
