Several CS 6/1s for sale in New Zealand
« on: September 11, 2022, 07:31:40 PM »
Hi guys

This post is also in the "original CS" page - admin people please do delete if that's not appropriate, thanks.

I'm going to sell the Listers I have up at my "shed"

It has taken me a while to realise I no longer need their generating capacity - really, the solar provides the watts i need; and there's a substantial solar upgrade on the horizon.
 the last time I was up there I ran one generator for 5 mins so I could use the big 4-slice toaster because my inverter isn't big enough.  The rest of the time - solar did everything.

Plus, I'm 65.  pretty soon they'll be too big & heavy for me to deal with and they'll just be a hassle for my kids when I die.

So - out they go

I attach links to short vids of two of them.

The 6/1 on the trailer, with the 5-stud Indian head (I have three or four Lister heads) was taken off the trailer, had its flywheels removed for ease of handling, and was parked in a paddock three years ago.  It's well-covered & should be fine.

The 6/1 driving the ST-clone head is still in place - although de-commissioned for the winter.  It has an electric start

There's another, an 8/1, which I had running a couple years ago. it was hard to start with low compression as it had a badly worn top ring groove - among other things.  I had the barrel off it an put it aside.  There's a new, alloy, 8/1 piston for it "on the shelf" along with several standard steel pistons - at least two are new - and several barrels

There's heaps of spares - gaskets, injectors, pumps, barrels, several heads, endless small banjo bits and gaskets . . .

There's an ST-type head and a Markon head plus most of the mounting hardware/drive belts etc.  both will make about 2500 watts off the CS

I'm going to advertise it all on our TradeMe here - think eBay

if there's any interest from members of the Forum - please do get in touch.  I have lots of pics & details

There's another 6/1 bottom end which is good - and a bunch of other stuff I have forgotten

Hi Mike, I couldn’t get the links to work. Could you re-posting them?

I'm rather interested in at least one of em. And can possibly find a buyer for the others/parts.
I was planning a trip down-country. (Heading for south island snow, fingers crossed) but a) need to put a vehicle together and 2) won't have a trailer.

You're taranaki ways eh? Might even know a guy local to you with interest...I'll PM ya my phone number.
