I agree on that lots of magazines on the subject renovate old motors like Listers.
However my reasearch on the subject showed it would not suit my needs to get up and running quickly and be transportable when I move house as I would be renting annualy so could sometimes move every year
those lister engines are big heavy beasts and not easy to move around.
I rent out my apaprtment in Northern Europe at 10% ratio and that gives me enough money along with working here to live in south Europe and renting a property here .
its not enough to buy property in this time and the rental from spain property is awful less than 5% ratio so it a very bad investment to buy in spain in this time
For the SYN gas too many problems in many parts of spain with sourcing cheap wood .
If I bought a property in spain would defintly look at that .
Do you know of any Lister projects in case I missed something
