Breathing LD1

Post by geoffw on Mon Mar 25 2013, 19:16

I have just got an LD1, that had not been used for years and now have managed to get it started up. It breathes a lot from the rocker cover when you undo the top and it smokes a bit. I know these engiones need a de coke after some use so it looks like I will need to take the head off. Does anyone know where I can get the manual for them for torque settings etc. I tried internal fire museum site but after registering and e mailing them I could not get it to work. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Geoff sounds as if you might need new rigs in it if it's breathing that much. Sorry I haven't a maual for the LD1 all I can find is this, you might get a little bit of info of it also check the links at the bottom of the page.

I gave away my original Lister manual when I sold my LD1 so I have forgotten the head settings and also the cylinder bump clearance. Embarassed The breather tube is inside the rocker cover so there will allways be some fuming in there. When you reassemble it put the shims above the head gasket (between the gasket and head) as it gives them better protection, they tend to 'blow out' if put directly on the cylinder itself.

Good luck with that, I signed up for IF a while back and still haven't heard anything back.
