Identification of Lister Engine

Post by no frillls on Mon Feb 21 2011, 21:40

I recently bought a saw bench which is powered by a Lister diesel engine. The engine is in need of some TLC both functionally and cosmetically. When I first took delivery the engine ran well, however now it will not start and it seems to be suffering from a lack of compression suggesting that a valve is stuck open. Before I start to strip the engine I would like to get hold of any maintenance documentation I can. I would also like to get a parts/spares catologue. I have the details of the engine from the flywheel casting and the identification plate, which has a small part missing.

The flywhell number is 20HO208. The identification plate has the following details recorded on it. No. 17/6 SRIA24.... or 1776 SRI24.... THP6 BS649 RPM 1800. The .... is where the ident plate is damaged.

Can anyone help identify this engine please?

Regards

Tony

Reading between the lines it looks like the 1,776th Lister SR1 built in 1974

Check the de-compression lever is not sticking.

IF it follows on from the numbering system Lister used between 1952 & 1981, it would be the 247th 8/1 built in 1984

Quite a few countries made Lister’s under License, saves on import duties etc.
