Lister 8-1 Question Oil dipper.

Post by Sir Clip on Thu Nov 19 2009, 18:33

I have just asembled the big end bearing of my Lister 8-1. The oil dipper set in the lower half of the bearing has puzzled me.This is a flattened rod projecting down from the bearing into the oil but can anyone tell me which way this flat should be positionded? The Instruction/parts book is not clear.Either it enters the oil (1)flat edge crossing the oil like a boat oar. Or (2) it enters in line, so to speak making a minimum of splash. Does this matter, or should I take my head out of the crankcase and get out more Meet people and try to be normal ?Chris...

I am not familiar with your engine Chris, but on a Lister D type the dipper enters the oil like a knife blade, eg edgewise, so that the oil is splashed outwards. I would think that yours would be the same, but it may be advisable to hear other members views first.

Oil Dipper.

Thanks Michael, Funnily enough I was looking through the Stationery engine parts website to order some parts the same day as I received your post,and there was a note with the dipper part saying that people had asked the same question.Discribed as a knife not a paddle. (same) I have noticed that the Lister instruction book and parts list in reasembly of piston and connecting rod that it IS mentionrd.I dont know how I missed that. Feel a bit of a prat now....Chris.

Stationary Engine Parts.

Post by Sir Clip on Thu Dec 10 2009, 19:35

Some parts that I have had from them 2 years ago were not as good as the original Lister parts,a cylencer was made of thinner sheet,and an air filter,spot welded, needed additional welding with difficulty because it was again so thin. But I am told by others that the Indian quality is getting better. Hopefully I will get main bearing and valve guides with proper sizes.I decided not to use the Indian oil throwers because I was told they were a slack fit on the original 2" shaft,(and cannot get original ones). If all arrive and are good I shall be letting you know.

i kknow the director of stationary engine parts on a personal basis, were mates, and the vast majority of the kit he has for sale if top quality, you probably wont get imported stuff from anyone else thats better or cheaper, theres a reason for this

steven periodically travels to india to the manufacturers of his parts and keeps on top of them to ensure thagt the quality is good, i bought my generator from him and he's a first class chap, he's also a Lister CS man, and has a beautiful 8hp SOM.

Yes, I have found Steve from S.E.Parts very helpful on the phone about things I'm not too sure on. Interesting You'r mates and that he has direct contact with the suppliers and is an enthusiast.My last and initial order from him was now three years ago. Then some parts, shall we say, left room for improvement.Nice to think he is keeping an eye on quality.Just got my bits this morning and all appear great stuff,main bearing now fitted nicely...
