Lister 27/3 Generator

At work, a 1945 Lister engined 230v single phase generator which has
been a reserve power source, is now no longer required. I believe it
has been run once in the last five years and is in working order. Base
approx. 12' x 4'. Radiator included. Location is Leeming, North
Yorkshire. Loading onto vehicle available.

Interesting electric start arrangement. What's hidden under the guard? A car engine flywheel? or some sort of double reduction?
Is it the original radiator? I have a very similar set, still hand start only.

Tim, I'm not sure about radiator originality. Probably not. It is a while since I saw it built up in situ. I'll look into that. The starting arrangement consists of the back end of a cylinder block with crankshaft cut off at last big end, a starter motor to drive the flywheel, which has a splined shaft and sliding dog which connects (manually) to its helical mate on the engine crankshaft before starting, and which is dis-engaged as the engine speed rises. All built to the most stringent Heath-Robinson criteria.
Regards, Dave.

Very classy
I like the way the flex mounts have been retained!

Hi Sent you an e mail via your hot mail account, but no reply. Would be interested in this generator as it would fit in with our set up.
How can this be progressed ?
Cheers

Hi, My apologies for not replying. Your email must have been caught in a spam filter, although four other tentative enquiries got through. I have replied to your request off-line.
The company now value the set between =A3400 and =A3500. Which, considering the price that some Lister 6/1s achieve ......

Hello Damien, Could you please supply an alternative email address as two replies to your enquiry have bounced back as "unable to deliver". Regards, Dave Carter.
