Lister B tank cooled make over

Post by rich07961 on Sat Jan 02 2016, 12:37

Decided to give the Lister B a make over, over the past few weeks and am pleased with the result, especially when it started first time this morning.
Still need to paint a couple of wheels and the handle, but due to this awful weather we are getting cannot get it out of the garage, plus a couple of decals
I am waiting for. All painted by hand and sponge roller.
From This.

Hi Rich
What is bore size of you/r fuel pipes please . Are the flow & return pipes both the same bore size or is the return pipe a bit bigger bore than the flow pipe .

Thanks Tony

Hi Tony,

They are both the same size 8mm outside diameter, on my A the return is 10mm, but the B runs as it should and have no problems with the fuel returning to tank, when I first got the B it would chuck out fuel from the carb no matter where I positioned the needle, I then read somewhere about the return fitting on carb would possibly benefit being lowered with three washers, which I have done and now do not have any problems, runs a treat and no fuel being splashed over my new paintwork.
