google is useless.any leads would be appreciated .  i'm in south central ontario , canada . one in cenral europe would interest me as well.

tall order, but they say stupidest question is the one you don't ask.

There is no person or place to contact that always has CS Listers for sale,, that I am aware of. You can try to contact Gary at Diesel Electric Service, Chase KS. I manage to find a few every year and market them through my shop but am back logged with sold engines that I don't even have yet. Try placing a want ad. Smoke Stak is a good place to do that or even FB. Of you can make do with a roid then one of the larger dealers in Canada is not far away

hi guys

thanks for the replies

i check fb and kijiji , and even craigs occasionally and nothing in a year( found a few, but crazy far )

patience is a virtue

it would be nice to have, and nice to know it would still work 50 years from now should my kids ever need it

if anyone ever hears of one, let me know

spoken to Jim, and if nothing pans out i may have to go the roid route, rigth now an all new unit and build is a little cost prohibitive so i may have to hold out for an "estate sale" unit

thanks all
