Stover slow speed diesel
« on: September 09, 2015, 12:23:51 AM »
Any one know any thing about stover Diesel engines?
I have found one that is single cylinder vertical  model is d-8 I believe and is a 10hp at 1000 RPM
It reminds me of the black stone

There are a few around, they are uncommon but not what I consider  rare. I see one up for sale about once a year usually not in running order. I have had a couple inquiries about parts and as far as I can tell  availability is close to zero, everything is custom.
Would be a long ways from my first choice for a user  but they would make a nice display engine

This one is very nice with oem radiator and a starter installed that looks oem but not sure. I have read on line there were 560 of the 10 hp made most of them going overseas but as we all know reading something on line is like seeing it on the evening news probably 10% truth 90% story

I made a couple calls and it would seem that nobody has adopted them meaning there isn't a good source to go to and get information. There are smatterings of info here and there on the Internet but I rather imagine you know how to do your own search, ;)
