186f 10hp diesels for sale on ebay. How?
« on: September 01, 2021, 08:28:26 PM »
I know this is a changfa type section. But this has had me wondering for a while.  The last 6-12 months these engines have over run ebay. If you do a search of smaller type diesel engines.  They are the air cooled 186 f Chinese clone of the Yanmar L100. They were sold in the U.S on generator setups under various name's until about 2011-2012 I think.      Then they were supposedly banned due to the EPA ::).                                                 
  Today these same engines can be purchased on Ebay from many different sellers in a few different states. Mainly they ship from California of all places ???  (Tree hugger capital of the world among various other lunatics). These engines have zero emission controls not even tier -1.5 :o ;D... Obviously they are coming by the container load. Can one of you guys help me understand how these supposed EPA illegal engines are getting into this country from china? But the Listeroid and some others are a big no-no. Thanks. Here are a few links..

Always seemed laughable to me you can own an AR15 or walk around with a Pistol in your jacket in the US yet a small Diesel engine is too dangerous for private citizens to have and make electricity or pump water or plough a garden with.

The ban on small diesels has zero to do with being dangerous. They could not meet tier 3 or 4 emissions.

 I replied to your original post on microcogen.


Here is a comment I’ve wrote:  “The company’s that are selling the engines have been doing it for some time. Why not call them or send them a message and see what response you get. I know some of us would be interested to hear their response.”
