Hi guys

It,s in a ok condition and has been on longleat estate all it,s life.

It was off a old cement mixer which was scraped bounce

Shame really.
Im going to restore it. It will be my first restoration project so i might be needing some help

Nice one Luke and at a good price, it should make a good project for you, the Lister D's are a good starter engine for someone new to stationary engines. Looking forward to seeing some pics but just a note that you may have problem getting your pictures to show with being a new member, I'll post the link on how to post them or it may be easier to use photo bucket and if all else fails send them to any of the admin and we'll post them for you. If you get the engine number off the brass plate someone will be able to tell you the date the engines was made and you can make up an information board to put with your engine when you start to show it.



Engines are just like Pringles .... one is never enough.  Very Happy                                        I used to love tractors all I would ever think/talk about. Then one day out of the blue I went on to statinary engines, So you could say I'm an extractor fan.
