Abstract
We give an infinite family of examples that generalize the construction given by Noce, Tracey and Traustason of a locally finite 2group G containing a left 3Engel element x where (Formula presented.) the normal closure of x in G, is not nilpotent. The construction is based on a family of Lie algebras that are of interest in their own right and make use of a classical theorem of Lucas, regarding when (Formula presented.) is even.
