There is a documented story of an automotive engineer showing up at a state fair booth where a guy was demonstrating an oil additive. they had a motor set up where two pieces of metal rubbed together and you could see the reduced friction when their product was added. The Engineer asked the guy running the booth if he would try 'his stuff', .... new pieces of metal were installed and this mystery concoction was added. To the amazement of the Booth Operator, he couldn't apply enough pressure to the disk to slow it down! The performance of this mystery stuff was off the chart, and clearly better than the stuff he was selling.
Focusing primarily on the supply of alternative energy equipment including the legendary JKSon Lister type diesel engines, ST alternator heads in single and three phase.
We are currently putting the equipment in the field to generate off grid power for our own use and research purposes. Some of the JKSon engines lend themselves to experimentation with waste vegetable oils and vegetable oils produced on farm.
These engines are not turn key solutions but require a certain amount of mechanical ability and offer a rewarding DIY experience - these slow revving engines are produced in a developing country at an affordable price and will deliver long life if they are cleaned and checked prior to use.
They are a simple cost effective power solution to run a myriad of belt driven equipment - spare parts are readily available and at a reasonable cost.
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.
