Default Hello

My name is Derek Wakefield, I live in eastern Canada on a small island called Grand Manan. It is in the Bay of Fundy which has the highest tides in the world, 53 feet being the most. Here on Grand Manan it averages about 28 feet. Anyways, I am a retired Powerline Technician, and have always been fascinated by the old hit and miss engines, along with the Listers, etc.. I have a Lister HR4 18KW genny, and a Lister Petter LPW4 16.1 KW genny that I just picked up yesterday. I will probably be reaching out looking for info on these. Thank you, Derek.

Hi Derek, welcome aboard, it would be nice to see some pictures of the generators.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
