Ruston Hornsby VSO size 4 diesel engine and generator

Recommended Posts

This is in the yard covered up Ruston Hornsby size 4 VSO diesel GEC generator set, I have no idea about the condition but it was running 10 years ago. Does anyone want a great rare restoration project? No its not free I have been offered £2000 for scrap but she needs to go to a good home. The generator is rated at 114amps running at 1500RPM giving 18.5 KW and boy this is a big piece of iron. According Ray Hooley it  was sold on 16.4.1940 to Higgins & Cattle Ltd, London W1.

I also have a number of single twin three cylinde and 4 cylinder diesel Lister Petters ideal for cement mixers saw benches etc that are on anther topic.
Happy to answer any questions.
I am near Fishguard west Wales.post-429-0-72853600-1428313705_thumb.jpgpost-429-0-02047000-1428313778_thumb.jpgpost-429-0-21947400-1428313880_thumb.jpgpost-429-0-17567500-1428313968_thumb.jpg

Hi,

I appreciate this is an old post, but am curious if you still have this? As we have one in our narrowboat which is a bit poorly at the moment and spares are getting hard to find. 

Thanks
