Do your own research, they are made in India, so need a bit of TLC when first purchased, but they can be made to run very reliably for many years. The old Lister was known to last as long as 50 years with very little maintenance. JKSon Listeroid engines are one of the twenty different brands of Listeroids made in India and they have established themselves as one of the better brands in terms of quality components.

These simple power and stationary engine solutions go against modern trends and are fixable by DIYers - the JKSon engines have been in operation in many countries and are considered to be one of the top Indian engine manufacturers of these type of diesel engines.

Ozlisteroids Australia arguably have one of the largest stocks of JKSon Listeroid spare parts outside of India - some components may be used, sometimes with modification as a suitable replacement part for the restoration of genuine CS series Lister engines.

Can you tell me where to buy the 2nd bearing adapter for a generator head with J609b adaptation. I have a nice generator head that I would really like to use, but its taper shaft and I need to adapt it to straight shaft 2 bearing unit. I seen a post you made about this being done and said if there is interest it could be sold, but never gave contact information or a way to show interest. I actually have 2 of these gen heads in perfect condition that engines failed on both and due to them being diesel engine’s they are incredibly expensive to repair. both need engine blocks of the yanmar 12hp design….several thousand for new engines.

Since building this generator, I have not used my 120VAC generator. This is capable of putting 600 watts, into my batteries, which is adequate to make up quickly for large loads off my inverter. I'll admit, it's a little work in the morning to start it, but once started it can run for many hours with no maintenance short of adding water. It seems to use about a gallon of fuel every 4 hours, not bad in my opinion...a LOT better than my old Honda generator (which quit after two years) which pounded itself to death charging batteries with a battery charger. Although antique engines may not be everybody's preference, a good slow running charger like this should be an important part of any "off the grid" battery powered system. Something like this, a good battery bank, and a strong inverter can go a long ways!
