Here up for auction we have a Lister sr1 single cylinder diesel stationary engine which is rated 7.75hp @ 2500rpm max or rated at 6hp @ 1800rpm continuous cycle. 

 

This engine has only had a run time of 23hrs, it was bought new by a dairy farmer who needed a standby generator for his milking parlour (because back in the 70’s the electric supply was a wee bit erratic out here in the countryside). He then gave up dairy and went onto running a garden centre where he never needed the generator. The exhaust paint which hasn’t been burnt off and the interior of the air filter confirms the lack of use.  Approx. 10 years ago, I bought the engine thinking it would come in handy…… but it just sat in the corner of the shed, but now I’m having a big clear out & this is going. To get rid of the 10yrs of dirt & dust I used a pressure washer but sadly it also removed some of the green paint in the process, hence the patchy primer showing through.

 

This engine had not been started in over 7 years, so it was with some trepidation that I dragged it out and gave it 8 swings (slow to start with, to prime the cylinder, NO easystart) but then I flicked the ‘rocker arm lever’ and off it went. We were all amazed at the ease of how started!

 

These engines have many, many uses from generators, water pumping to hauling boats out of the sea, saw bench, small boat engine etc, etc.  (Hard to believe nowadays, but I once drove a 32 ton tipper lorry which had one of these engines mounted on the trailer, which worked the hydraulic tipping rams!)  Despite being made in 1974, in reality this engine is almost new, starts like new, has the ‘pulling’ power of a new one and will go on for many, many years, unlike the small capacity high revving diesel engines of this output you buy today.

 

I know it seems a high starting price but you will not get an engine like this one, anywhere else at this price, no VAT to be added on here either.  

 

I can place and tie the engine down onto a euro pallet, should you wish to arrange for pallet collection. (I will charge £20 to go out & get a pallet, tying it down and staying in for the collection, as it all takes time & money) but you have to pay and arrange for the collection. If collecting in person please pay cash on collection………I will be already paying £55 worths of Ebay fees on this one L

 

So all in all, a Lister sr1 with a handy size pulley on it, all of which is in fantastic condition& looking forward to being put to many years of hard labour.
