Are these Redstone diesels?
« on: November 23, 2019, 06:29:57 PM »
Hi guys, I really dropped the ball on this one.
Last year I found this website and contacted the company;but due to personal reasons I didn't attempt to purchase anything from them.

Today I went back into my emails and found the pics and messages; I thought I would share in case anyone is interested.

I also found this ad and apparently the company also makes the more familiar Chinese horizontals as well.

Click the product Description tab.

I was quoted US$1,000.00 each FOB Quingdao Port.

What do you guys think?

Yes, they certainly look like redstones to me.

I can only view the picture in your first post. The rest are missing.

I had to get my son to help me reduce the size of the pics.

Moderator, please delete the first 3 (oversize) pics.

I thought (oh ow brain pain) that Redstones had only one flywheel, or one small and one large or something?
Never mind I have probably drifted away into an alternate reality or something.

PS. Yes I have lost my mind, I went and watched a video and the Redstone does indeed have a pair of flywheel that look to be nicely matched.
  Now if I can just figure where that other brain fart I had came from :o

The Mighty Redstone.


These are pictures of one taken "back in the day" 3 or 4 years ago any way.
 So it looks like you have found a supplier.

Good luck.

As I set here looking at the pictures I'm wondering why a Lister CS needs the great big water tank and these seem happy with a couple of gallons.  I'm sure it's in the archives but a simple answer would be so wonderfully easy for me.

Hi Casey, hopper cooled engines Redstone, Changfoids, and just about all the old Antique Hit and Miss engines use evaporation
to cool, the water actually boils in the hopper, so they run at close to 212 degrees. The Lister(oids) circulate coolant like more modern
things cars, farm tractors, trucks and the like.  The only downside to hopper cooling, my opinion only, is that you have to babysit the things. During power outages here when I run The Great Walla Walla Xing Dong, I am up and out every hour or two filling the hopper, and just generally checking on things. It is just not a start it and forget it proposition.
Hope this helps.
