Looks ripe for restoration, you will find the serial number on.the flywheel also the book on how to restore a lister D is really useful.

Looks like a nice challenge but it will give you a great feeling of achievement and satisfaction when it fires up again. I see the valve cover is missing I'm sure I have one in the garage. Pm me if your interested. The lister d restore bible is by David Eddington who will also date it for you. Good luck and look forward to seeing updates and progress pics.

Go careful not to lose small caps on top of valves they can disappear down into push rod gap and disappear into timing gears never to be found again.

Hi all


I have just pulled the head off the lister d and it was seized. Plenty of wd40.




the valves are not seized which is good it will save some wd40
