1928 low tank shafty , new addition

Post by janner on Mon Apr 01 2013, 17:46

Hi all, added a new addition to the collection this week, S/N 80248 10/10/1928 Lister D type with low tank and ricardo head, my guess it has not done too much work or has had some money spent years agon, as it runs very sweet and there is no gear clatter or rumbles anywhere, in fact its one of the sweetest running d's I've ever owned barring my shafty that Statman has. anyway , will add some pics and a video later so you can see it ,

Thanks Jon

The bottom of the tank is shot so need to get it repaired as they are not available anymore, will get a local chap who is a fabricator to repair it. Jon

That's a new one to me.
Don't think I've ever seen one in Australia but now I'll be keeping an eye out.

They are not too common over here in Lister's homeland neither really, good luck finding one though. Jon
