Chris, there is not enough thanks to fill this fourm for you. You have ended almost 15 years of searching for that elusive little green diesel, the L range and i also gained another friend, many thanks.

 

 

GT Talk family, guys and gals... welcome my new baby to the diesel family, Meet Lister :

Very cool Lister diesel. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Should make for a great repower. One of these days I will have me a diesel.

  I just wanted to let you folks know that this was shipped via Fastenal. Jesse made that arrangements and it was very easy to do. The people at the local store were waiting for me and made the drop off very simple. My hats off to Fastenal for providing a first class service at a reasonable cost.  :thumbs:

 

Jesse I'm really glad the engine found a good home.  Hopefully it will fill your expectations and provide many hours of enjoyment. It was a pure pleasure doing business with you. Keep us filled in on your experiences with the Lister please.

I'm not sure what this engine was originally used for. I would guess it was used in a traffic control sign like my other one. They drove a pretty good sized alternator to keep the batteries charged. They are also used to provide power on the Valdez pipeline at their remote monitoring stations.  Lister told me that they have seen as much as 40,000 hours of continuous operation before being rebuilt.

3903029LT1A030,...................Model LT1, Built in 1989, high output model, build 30 which means anticlockwise rotation.

 

Just finished running it up for almost two hours. Took a little bit to get all the air out of the line, snorted, cough a few times, cleared her throat and took off, runs great, no burnt oil, ticks or probs, settled right in and rattles like it should so,...on to the next step.

 

I agree with Chris, like my other Lister Petter genset everything about this one states it lived in a enclosure, more then likely a trailed sign board or flood light plant, usually see those and the LV1 models on UK Fleabay once in a while but this one was pulled from the warehouse, assembled and shipped to the USA, set at 2500/2800 rpm which tells me it was only for running lights which are not hertz sensitive and i would not be shocked to find it spun a 4 or 6 pole alternator feeding a battery bank for lights and inverted/rectified for as Chris stated, utility tools.

 

And yes, Chris and Lister Petter are not kidding, 40,000 + hours but there are been records of several breaching that and still running as far as i know to this day.

Good to hear you have it running again and it's performing satisfactorily. They are a wonderful engine and the sound is music.

Looking forward to the next step.
