    All 4 lots of LPW4 motors that sold over the last couple weeks were all used / cores. ( that's not to say they won't run ) They were not new or rebuilds. I was bidding on them as well, but like Smokem joe said, It would be nice to have a few, but I don't need 11 or 13 of them. I would however be interested in buying a couple if you guys ever get in touch with any of the winning bidders. Lot of 11 a couple weeks ago went for $2100 and like $2500 for 13 of them. Well worth the money if you have a use for them!

    I still haven't heard from them. I can't imagine that whoever bought them would need that many. Or, what are they using them for? There seem to be quite a few lot's have come up as of late. I am going to reach out to GP again.

    Even though its an online process to bid and buy... not all mil surplus buyers want anything to do with the 'net past whats necessary. So its possible that the reach out notes simply havent been seen. Glass half full and all.

    Way before EBay, back in the 80's, a friend of mine bought over 40 gen set at a DRMO sale in Toole, Utah. He stripped the alternators out of them and mated pumps to the engines. Sold them all in Mexico. Then started again. Lots of reasons to buy large lots.

    Thats interesting, but not unsurprising. After all, Lister-Petter used to be one of the biggest players in small scale stationary power. Their older single cylinder 6/1 (and now Indian clone) are STILL in use across the developing world. Powering anything and everything you can think of from water pumps, to anything which can be belt driven.

    Edit: 80s... ok, so probably not L-P, but still valid comments about stationary power repurpose.

    But by the time they figure in the shipping costs they paid and a little profit ,most people won't want to pay their price plus more shipping costs.

    Some of the ones I saw had the paint intact on the exhaust manifolds. That would make them pretty fresh based on appearance anyway.

    Well based off of info learned from a contact at Adelmans that is where all the recent lots of engines ended up. Capeprep that is why you haven't gotten any response from trying to contact them. They have no interest in a private sale.
