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.
Well; I don’t know exactly what to say to that set of post’s by Neil. Lord Willing, I’ve seen how Ethanol blended fuels separate first hand by putting some in a mason jar, 3/4
full and let it set and watch what happens over time with a sealed lid. I shook it up and let it stand. It turned a light milkey color, then; After about 2 weeks, sure enough. Water started forming in the bottom. Try it and see. I’m on you’re side George. For years straight gasoline was the way to go. Not anymore! I’m trying to go diesel all the way as hard as I can! BTW; Excellent idea on turning that single bearing into a self standing generator head. I’d like to try that myself.
Jan 8th 2017: The mail server which sends/receives LEF emails has finally died, permanently... I'm working on getting it replaced, but for the next few days LEF won't be sending any e-mails. This also, unfortunately, means no registration e-mails will be going out. Anyone who registers during this blackout, I'll approve you and manually e-mail you to indicate your account is set up. Apologies for the inconvenience. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
