Original Lister D

Post by Hughesy on Sat Mar 03 2012, 12:47

Hello All
Started the restoration on my Lister D last week, Engine was bought form cheffins collective sale last year and has stood since i bought it home. The engine was covered in a thick layer of mud and general grime. after pressure housing revealed the original paint and some transfers. so i have decided to linseed oil the engine.

Have so far put 1 coat of linseed oil on and its bought the paint work up well. should i put another coat of linseed oil once dry or is one coat enough?

Heres a few pictures of the engine at present.













Will post more pictures up as i go.

Lewis

Paint is in good nick, must have been all the crud on it that's kept it so good. Good luck with the rebuild and thanks for posting the pics.
