Lister G Type Sawbench

Post by Hughesy on Sun Mar 30 2014, 21:45

Hello all

Went to collect a couple of engines today and as I turned into the cul de sac to collect an engine. I passed a sawbench in a front garden. Upon closer inspection I saw the G type at the other end of the trolley. The gentleman informed me he had it since he was 17 and is now 85. He used to cut logs with it daily up till 3 years ago when it wouldn't start one dayit was left.  

After enquiring a deal was struck and the set up was loaded.

Here's a couple of pictures







A few questions for you all

Is this an original set up?  What horse power are these Lister g1's

Many. Thanks Lewis

Looking at my G1/G2 instruction manual it states 2 3/4 - 7 Horse Power @ 700 - 1500 rpm for the G1/GK1. Now why can I never find engine's lurking in gardens? Smile 

Pete.
