lister D engine

Post by old_iron on Sun Jun 30 2013, 21:40

Could anyone help me, as i am trying to get the date and other information about a Lister D i aqquired from the 1000 engine rally.
The problem been it has two different numbers, a flywheel number is1/56176, but the spec plate says it is 1/91285 26DHS. I believe the flywheel number may be the right one, but would be grateful for any feedback.

I don't suppose they stamped the number in the end of the crank shaft that late on? My old Lister A has the number right on the end of the shaft.

It could be it's had a different crank case door (inspection cover) at some point & no one bothered to swap the brass plates over, or it might have had a different flywheel at some point.

My money would be on the flywheel, but then again I can't think of much reason why either piece would be replaced, unless the engine has been assembled from spare parts.

You could always email David Edgington with the numbers, he will give you the info for both of them. I have his email address, PM me if you want it as i would rather not put email addresses up on public forum.

I'm not a Lister specialist though, so someone else might have more insight into the situation. But let me know if you want David's email address.

I would be very swayed towards the flywheel number being correct as flywheels don't go wrong or get mislaid !! whereas the crankcase door can easily be replaced with another should the original be broken or lost during restoration, so go for the flywheel number and ask D.W.E the question

Shall we set up a poll? Flywheel Vs Crankcase Door?

Dunno why I went with flywheel, just got a feeling. But the door is definitely the easier part to change.

It could still be a parts engine, there's plenty of them around. Nothing wrong with them either, as they are usually built up from the best bits of many that are laying around, so you end up with a pretty good engine at the end of it. There's a lot to be said for a good bitsa.
