Lister Domestic pump

Post by callum12 on Fri Oct 18 2013, 20:12

hi all,
i have now got a lister domestic pump. it will be ran off of a lister d type. i have a few questions to ask about the operation and thing to look out for on a pump as its my first. Firstly, can you run the pump dry? some pumps i know you can't. how much of a load does it give a Lister d? and finally is SAE 30 oil okay for the crank case?
here is a picture:


thanks for any help

Domestic will not give much load under normal running but if loaded up to there maximum capacity will make a 4hp engine work!

Thanks all,
its good to know that there is a good choice of spares available and that their still be made now! must be good.
Just a thought, could i run the drive belt off the flywheel to increase the gear ratio or should i only run the pump off the pulley?
thanks again,
callum

Run it from the pulley, the design speed of these pumps is only 500rpm.

Off the flywheel all you will do is bust the conrod.

i'm now planning to use the pump to get water from a underground water tank that collects water from the roof. I will then pump the water into large butts behind the shed to water the garden with.
I think it will be nice to put the pump and Lister to good use; i just need to find a way to gain access into the water tank. this shouldn't be too hard as there is a plastic man hole type thing.
