Does anyone know if a shearing plant on a Lister D is a rare engine?

I wouldn't say they are particularly rare, you seem to see a fair few of them about. But as they were used & abused for many years some of the parts are becoming difficult to find.

Not that rare, there are two for sale in this months Stationary Engine Magazine. Lister A ones are fairly common as well, I had one either side of me at the 1000 engine rally! The Wolseley WD versions are a lot less common over here.

Great news Lau, it's all exciting when you turn the crack handle for the first time after a rebuild. Looking forward to hearing how you get on.

here we go....

Post by lau1990 on Sat Aug 18 2012, 11:30

right i ave many pictures to show you all Smile so im gonna do each bit in sections. as you all know me and my partner had this engine from a farm yard looking like this...



we got it bk and set about restoring it so we brought the stationary engine magazine restoration book nd this has been our bible (SO TO SPEAK).
next is the pictures off it all apart Smile i apoloise to anyone reading this hu ave already seen the pictures before at an earlier date but i thought this would be an easier way for makin sure i dont miss out anything Smile

next...the trolley

Post by lau1990 on Sat Aug 18 2012, 11:42

right so the nxt bit was the trolley as tht we knew when the engine was finished we could start to rebulid bk onto the trolley. at first i didnt like the trolley but it has slowly grown on me and at least its the original trolley so thats a plus Smile
so heres a picture of the trolley all primed up. sorry i didnt get a picture of it unprimed but we forgot lol we just got too excited about starting our lil project off Smile



next came the wheels this time i did get a picture of the wheels unprimed. probably cause they were so rusty nd i didnt see how we were gonna save them. but sure enough the sander did its job brilliantly nd they look amazing so here is the before nd after priming pictures





so the next stage is to choose the colour to ave the trolley. at first we thought green but then though noooo too much green. then red but i didnt like the idea so in the end we decided on.....wait for it....BLACK Smile so it is a picture of the wheels and main trolley painted in black and then the one after is a picture of the trolley reassembled all apart from the handles which ave only been primed at the moment so that update will be the last thing to add maybe tonight Smile

right um next....the head and the engine itself

Post by lau1990 on Sat Aug 18 2012, 11:56

right so thats the trolley all ready for the go. next was the sanding down of the head and main bit of the engine. once again the partner got carried away so i didnt get a close up photo of the parts before sanding down, but here is what they looked like after shaun gave them a bit of a hard time lol





then it was time for my job the priming and the painting of it. so first heres the photos of it primed up



then the exciting pit of putting it bk to the original colour or green Smile

fly wheel and partly put bk together

Post by lau1990 on Sat Aug 18 2012, 12:13

right so the fly wheel... this is the bit that shaun didnt want to get to lol the idea was that we werent goin to take it apart lol but when we went to put the fly wheel bk on the engine the frint bit of the fly wheel came off so he now has no choice in the matter lol anyways that isnt where we are up to atm lol so the fly wheel

here is the picture of it before and after priming





now this is where it goes from red to being on the engine in green...yes shaun got happy again and while i wasnt there for a day he decided to paint it and put it onto the engine without taking a photo lol but here is a photo of it bk on the engine (MINUS the fallen off bit at the front which we still ave to paint green and reattacth



and probably the last photo at the moment is the engine back on the trolley Smile its soooo nearly there



right i have got plenty more photos but i have now got to work out what i have got. so for now this is the last update and maybe tonight i might get the bloke to write the nxt one up lol

just a quick last note to add...we were soooo close to gettin her started up last night but we had no compression in the engine we think that might be to do with the vavles so when the bloke gets home frm a job we are gonna try that and hopefully get her running before the night is thru today lol.

i hope my updatge has been interesting nd not boring for any one hu decides to read this and thank you for following us in our project next is the shearing attacthments

What a great job you've both done, and thanks for sharing the pics with us, it's always good for anyone new to see how these engines are transformed from a rusty bit of scrap to an engine you can put on a rally field and be proud of.

Thanks again,

Stu.

Looks ok does that.

I think you might find the drive belt needs a twist in it, most of the ones I've seen have a twist, also looking at the photos you look like you are missing a radiator, fan assembly and radiator top plate, your D has the vee for the fan belt behind the flywheel.

I think you're right there mate unless its a reverse rotation engine. I ran mine without a twist and as soon as I engaged the clutch the handpiece shot off!
