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.
