Nice, I like the Enfield, 2 stroke arnt they? my Stuart restated my love of flat twins, going to get my T300 up when I next going Cornwall, Water Cooling is overrated Wink

enfield 6hp

they are two stroke, this one has no spark at the moment but is complete so should no take too much to get it running.

lister abl

Post by earlsinclare on Sun Apr 17 2011, 14:41

the lister is also complete with very good compression it just has a weak spark from standing for so long. i think i will have the mag rebuilt not sure of the HP though.
thanks Earl.

I like the look of the Enfield, looks to be a heavy lump!!!

Good luck with the restorations.

Thats the weakness with them! ignition system can be a pain in the backside, A few I have seen have been converted to battery coil ignition

Post by earlsinclare on Wed Jun 01 2011, 17:52

the lister abl is now a runner, i took a gamble on a box of mag parts on ebay, cases, coils, points etc and the first coil i checked was a good one put it straight in and it started second pull. it runs quiet for a small engine.

Hi Earl

Dont suppose you ever run your Enfield, thinking about getting one off of a friend which dosn’t have the exhaust or ignition system, just the points, so would need to set up battery coil ignition, didnt know if you had it running? would like to know if they are a absolute pig or not.

Cheers Steve
