Your doing a great job, nice to see a young lady in the hobby pity ther wasn't more that share your enjoyment. Can I ask what colour your going to paint it, will you be sticking with the normal green or you going for pink like some of the other ladys in the hobby.

Excellent looking very nice, my boy has the same trolley etc with a D and shearing heads, we havent got the leads or clippers and struggling to find some, we have found some in the past but they want silly money for them,
well done keep up the good work, there was a complete set up at abbey hill on trolley etc etc he wanted £350.00 for it,

So your not a girly girl and it's going to be painted up as original. Very Happy Good luck with the restoration and hope you manage to find the required parts before the rally.

Sounds like you've had a bit of good luck, you going to keep the engine you've restored, think I would. Very Happy

Interesting project

Post by glowes3 on Thu Jul 26 2012, 11:56

Just looked at your project - very interesting.
Does anyone know if a shearing plant on a Lister D is a rare engine?
