Not got pics to hand but I did mine for the CS underground in a bank to keep the noise down as much as possible. Insulated withe ridged foam for the same reason. The exhaust is to a pit for the same reason. The CS ran 12 ish hours a day driving a wind turbine genny that was grid tied. It ran on WVO. got a feed in tariff initially till they made annual inspection compulsory with a cost double that which I was claiming when we got solar the grid tie was removed. It is now backup for the house and used for big loads in the workshop and to run the bio processor.

Hi PS,

this may be of help https://lifeattheendoftheroad.wordpress.com/2011/11/17/cyrils-in/ that's one of my old one's still doing Stirling service after 50 years or something. I cannot emphasize enough that it should be mounted 'rock solid' with no rubber mounts or flexible exhaust piping. An SR2 needs at the very least a ton of concrete, two really.



He's better mounted a little further away from the wall than Cyril and preferably high enough so you can easily drain the oil and service him without getting a bad back.



I've fitted half a dozen or so Listers in remote 'off grid' properties over the last thirty year. The only one that's not still running is this one.



Some clown burnt the shed down with Mr Lister still inside  Cry

Good luck, Paul
