New Additions

Post by Tony C on Tue May 29 2012, 21:03

Brought home a couple of new additions today, A 1950 Lister D along with a Lister Pump, the engine which is petrol/paraffin spent all its life on a farm in South Wales driving milking equipment until electricity arrived. The pump comes from the house next door to the farm & was used for their domestic water.
The owner of the pump bought the engine from the farmer with the intention of putting them on a trolley & showing them. He then restored both engine & pump built a steerable trolley which he then mounted onto the wheels of his chicken shed, at this point he lost interest & put it all in his barn

I don’t want to put the pump onto the same trolley as I would like to be able to use it with the another engine now and again, I also have a problem with the size of the trolley it’s 52 inches long & 31 inches wide which is too wide to fit through my back gate & my shed door, I’m considering reducing the length by 18 inches & narrowing it to 28 inches.

The good news is I cleaned the plug tightened a few nuts on the fuel line & she ran well at first attempt.

Hope you like the pics.
Cheers Tony.

Great find, yes the trolley could do with shortening that should keep you busy.
