Gary,

Were there any fuel/water tanks in there? I know at least 1 of Jeff's engines should have had a full set of tanks (water+diesel), plus IIRC another standard sized diesel tank & one outlandish big one (may have been water actually).

In fact, are those photos the sum total of the contents of the container, or are there other bits unpictured? Because TBH I'm pretty sure I physically collected more than has been shown there.

Cheers,
Ade.

Yes, there are several fuel tanks, water tank, and other loose parts in the load. I pictured just the main engines for identification purposes... we are counting on individual owners to identify their other smaller pieces. There is also a pressure cooker here for Mike Lisenby.

I haven't heard from Mike for a couple of years, so I'll leave it to him to pursue if he wants to.

Exactly! Mike assigned a person here to handle anything that came up for him... we are in frequent contact with that person.

 Gary,  Mike also assigned me to handle some of his stuff over here, he has  my contact details and the last time I was in contact with him he seemed perfectly capable of asking any questions or pursuing things himself without the help of concerned third parties.

Just purely out of idle curiosity, I assume that from the photographs, all but one of these engines (Lister VA) were single cylinder Lister CS engines, did no other Lister engines types make it to the US?

^ So no twin cylinder Lister CS engines then? Is this due to their been no demand, or because it was not possible to locate any in the UK for export?

I would hazard a guess that both supply and demand are very low for twins.

Very hard to find twins over here, and when they do pop up on eBay, they go for "proper" money.

So if I was  able to locate a qty of genuine twin cylinder Lister CS engines (mostly late 16/2 but also 12/2 that are located outside the UK), what would they be worth to a US customer?

They would be complete, but would range in condition from complete non runner to a good running condition.
