Hello
We've just moved house and found a Lister engine? generator? which looks like used to power the old shepherds hut. Would anyone be interested in using it, probably for spare parts? If you want it and can pick it up its just outside Llandrindod Wells in Wales, feel free to message me on here. On the other hand it might be long past its best and see out its life living under the Leylandi. Not interested in any money but just love all the pictures of your old engines and appreciate what you all do.....and a fan of Fred Dibnahs work :)
Thanks
Alex

Hello Alex
Very generous offer from you!
I'm on the other side of the world, so won't be driving over pick it up.
It appears be in reasonable condition for refurbishing.....we've seen a lot worse here on the forum that were resurrected.
Hope you can find someone who will take it home and put it back in service!
Cheers
Hugh

Thanks so much Hugh
Great to hear you think it might be worth something to someone, Ill leave it here and if anyone thinks they can use it they are more than welcome
(I'd imagine picking it up and popping it in a car boot might be tricky)
In the mean time I'll stick a tarp over it
All the best
Alex
