someone needs to jump on this, if only I lived in canada

CHANGFA 16 HP KEY START DIESEL ENGINE CHANGFA 16 HP KEY ST

THIS auction is for a Changfa 16 HP Diesel Engine  with key start . This engine is new . I was going to set it up to be used with waste cooking oil instead of diesel and use it to charge a large battery bank . It is water cooled and had a water tank but i was converting to be used with a radiator instead .it weighs about 400 lbs . As you can see in the pics most of the work is already done . My only problem was i did not have a place to run it because i live in an apartment building . I paid over 1200 for the engine alone .

I need to get rid of it ASAP . I dropped the price by more than half .


Pick up only .

She looks like a good chunk of stuff. I'm about 150 miles away but have way too many half finished projects around here already.

  Going to a good home soon where she will continue to be loved, appreciated and coupled to a 10KW 3 phase generator.. Now to figure out how to hoist it from floor level into the back of the truck?  My wife is going to be so ticked. Better get the engine coupled to the generator asap and hope the power goes out soon after.

a day late and a dollar short is bad enough, but...

a day late and "nothing" short is just inexcusable!

lol

I should have just bought the damn thing, then offered it to someone here.

YES! That smooths things ever so nicely!  We had a nice long 58 hour outage right after I completed my 1115/15KW unit and now the wife always asks me if I have tested it lately to be sure it works ;)

Thought you said someone else said they won the auction.  How did you end up with it?
