Haven't been on here much since everybody told me running WMO would ruin my engine LOL
Glad it worked out for you. I no longer live in texas, I now live in Alaska. I am looking for a listeroid and a 3 kw st type generator head for my landlord. His electric bill s 800 to 900 a month. You can run a roid here 24/7 @ 300 rpm to charge batteries on straight diesel for under 300 dollars LOL. I want to set up a power plant for him.
I am not too concerned about condition, he is a diesel mechanic and parts are easy to get.

  engine sold as kit, convert from compressor to engine, and then bolt up a generator.
 Lots of views, many of us want to see it work, but many have also been burned by india too.

But I think for more reliable power , the chinfaga engines seem to be a better quality but higher RPM.

Listeroids loose a lot of heat between power strokes, and seem to suffer from getting carboned up,  But a little water injection helps ameliorate that problem.

Hi Guys, I am a little concerned about using either of those water cooled engines in an environment where the temperatures can drop down to minus eighty centigrade in winter. I would be looking for an air cooled engine maybe a Lister ST or SR, more economical and very reliable in very cold conditions. They run at 1500 or 1800 RPM to meet your local generating requirements (50/60 HZ).

What environment is that? Antarctica? Lol the lowest temperature ever recorded on earth is close to that.

Hi Tanman, the clue is in the subject of the post "Wanted listeroid in Alaska". I have been to Canada in winter with temperatures down to minus 40 centigrade, I am guessing things are only going to get colder the further north you go. If Rbodell is serious about running a water cooled engine he is going to have to do it indoors or run it 24/7, alternatively he could put it on some sort of heated life support with a lot of antifreeze.
