how do i stop it?!!

Post by LISTER D CHRIS on Tue Sep 02 2014, 18:43

Hi all. What is the correct method of stopping my Lister D? at the moment I either just turn off fuel until it stops or I push the air valve down till it stops!

Hi,
I just turn the fuel tap off,wait a moment or 2 then turn the mixture screw ( not the air valve) to the off position.That works for me.
There are some useful videos on youtube about this and other Lister D bits and pieces.Hope that helps.
Kev.

I was told that if you can't stop it via the mixture needle you pull the air valve up. I don't this it really makes a difference.
If the mixture needle has been painted (like mine) you may not see the off position marked. just turn it clockwise.

may i recommend the Lodge CV as a replacement spark plug, you can get them off of ebay, i got mine for £18 their new old WW2 stock. pricey i know but they can be fully disassembled for de coking. they look great as well.
