A very intriguing site. This guy has ome interesting ideas, but I would not like to try some of the things he suggests. He obvioulsy lacks experience, and without a doubt exhibits some serious personality defects, as if he has a need to be overly agressive to cover his insecurity.
He demonstrates some nice lateral thinking, but doesn't seem to think it through. The milk float idea looks good on the surface, but when you consider a miilk float has a top speed of around 15 mph it would be a very frustrating mode of transport.
He DOES exhibit the attitude that was prevalent among engine users in their heyday i.e. using igenuity to keep things going, but he also seems to demonstrate what he condemns......bodging with mistaken the beliief he knows what he is doing.
From what I see I don't think I would want to spend much time with this chap, but I would probably listen to what he has to say and then discard all the b***s***
Just a pity that he seems to have the interest in engines, but not the spirit.
I will do some more checking ou of the search engine he recommends though. On the surface it seems useful
You guys probably need to know that the OP has something of an ulterior motive. There's a world of darkness going on between him and the owner of the lister, and the OP is a prolific troll and usenet troublemaker. He posts under multiple names and so on - check UK local southwest, UK Isle of Wight, UK cars rec modifcations etc etc. I'd killfile him now if I were you.

baldrick is an engineering genious.............who else would come up with a cunning plan to mount a powerful stationary heavy oil engine, on an old
electric milkfloat, and adapt the engine to power various things, including an extremely useful 138v DC generator!
Must be something they put in the water down in Devon..................lol
It is. This guy using a munged up version of the URL in the OP however is Chris Stevens, aka Ken and various other names, who Bunt recently took to court along with a couple of others for defamation. Bunt lost the case, apparently due to his mishandling of it.
Stevens' trolling activies seemed to diminish in the run up to the case but he has since reactivated his activities along with an apparent desire to get back at Bunt, hence postings like this one here.
Nothing to do with your declared interest in taking the engine from him in lieu of expenses then? No, though not.
And for your information, I have nothing to do with Bunt. I am simply letting the good folks on this NG know that you hadn't innocently stumbled across the website on the Lister but have an ulterior motive.
I am not remotely interested in the outcome of your childish feud with John Bunt on you.
I have no interest in debating with you. I have drawn the attention of the NG to the issues surrounding you and the owner of the Lister. If that is a problem for you then I suggest that it highlights your ulterior motives in this matter.
I have absolutely no interest in conversing with Chris Stevens beyond this. My aim here was to alert you all to the nature of the apparently innocent enquiry and I think you will have seen by his responses that there is more to the enquiry than a purely technical interest which was the only reason that I allowed him to draw me into a few responses.
If you google for "Ken" in his various alter egos around Usenet you will find that he has attempted to spoil a large number of NGs by his trolling and providing information of dubious value and crude abuse to those who show him for what he is. I suggest you do not allow him the satisfaction of that here by ignoring any further attempts he migh tmake to draw you out.
Seems a shame that trolls such as this seem to have limitless amounts of time to make posts that have nothing whatsoever to do with the topic under discussion, but do seem to have dubious ulterior motives........
