Excellent, keep us posted on sales figures and what all you're importing.

Right now, I'm importing what someone wants and will pay for, up until about July 4, when I look to close out the shipment.

After that, the guy selling me jar lids by the 10,000s will pull together the other goods I've purchased and pointed in his direction, including Diesel engines, and get them into a container and put them on the water.

The time is now, if anyone is interested.

List desires here, and I will find out prices and post them up.

Just a thought, might reach out on other platforms as well. Farcebook Marketplace perhaps?

My current tally is:

2x Z175F air-cooled single cylinder engines, left from a previous shipment, for personal use on my little farm.

2x R165M electric-start water-cooled engines, because that's just freakin' cool.  I'm sure I can find something to do with them.

1x SD1130 electric-start engine, if I can find one.  Maybe a KM186, if I cannot.  Not sure what I'll do with this one yet, except to tear it down and measure it up.  Maybe wood-gas experimentation; will want a spare cylinder head...

I'm also asking about a couple more air-cooled engines, for other tasks and to have a hot spare.

That is probably all I will have money to import for myself, in this round.  More engines of a given kind will mean small price breaks, so if there is any interest, add on.

Is there a small diesel-focused group there, that would concentrate interest?

Just throwing something up on FB Marketplace probably would not draw the right eyes.

This forum seems to be the most active place on the Internet, at least that I can find, for people interested in these engines.  That's why I'm here.  :-)

There is a Listeroid group. Little activity. Other various diesel engine groups, might do a search, join them and post your offering. There ARE folks out there that will be interested, and many that don't know what a Listeroid CS even is.

This group shows Changfa's down the page a bit

Hi Keith,

There seem to be no twin flywheel engines available.  The company that was making the "Redstone" engines (JSD1800 and JSD3200) says they are no longer making them.

Their target market was Afghanistan, and those folks switched to solar panels for most of their needs, or so their story goes.  They suggested SD or LD engines.

If you're interested in picking up a 4-pole generator head, I'm sure it could ride along just fine.  Have you done your shopping already?

One question that has come to mind. ST 7.5 or ST10 THREE PHASE heads seem scarce, and the prices are a lot higher than 1 phase units. My interest is in obtaining a 3 phase unit for a reasonable price.

Kinda of like the newer model 185 electric start, condenser style cooling.. ST10 single phase

I'll ask my suppliers what prices they can meet for 185 electric start engines.  Are you interested in more than one engine, or do you need any spare parts while you're shopping?

I haven't bought a Chinese alternator (yet), and I'm not terribly familiar with that market.  I've been looking around at it a little, because I'm seriously considering a unit I can play with to control the output voltage.  If I rectify that voltage, I can dump the results directly into my NiFe bank.  Any caveats you can offer, would be appreciated.

One of the supply houses is very interested in selling air compressors... :-)
