hi from east ayrshire

Post by old tinkerer on Fri Sep 09 2016, 16:47

hi everyone, my name is Wilson, a retired diesel mechanic i have a Lister d which sat in the shed for 30 years ,no time to look at it till now, got it going after a few adjustments.also have a Lister LD and a isler water cooled single cylinder air compressor which stands 32 inches high,so far i have been unable to get any information on that, decided to tinker with smaller stuff to keep the fingers and brain from seizing up, joined the forum to ask questions and hear peoples views.new to computing as well so they are going to be a few mistakes along the way hope, i don't upset anyone. enough for now Wilson.

hi tony. i have a 1938 lister d 2hp 1000 revs, how do i know what parts are original and what's not. i also have a 1945 d 11/2 hp 750 revs for spares. the hopper lid on the 38 is cast with casting numbers on top and has a chamfered edge round the opening,the 45 has a machined opening, the rocker cover on the 38 breathes at the edges , the 45 has a dome shaped breather. i have no silencers at all, need to know the correct one for the 38, long or short.i want to strip down and re build the 38 over the winter and want to get it right, i don't want it to look like a bitsa. i had the 38 running, it has a sri magneto . i also have the Nigel McBurney book on restoration for the technical information. any help on the correct parts would be grateful .wilson.

correct parts

Post by old tinkerer on Fri Sep 16 2016, 10:08

hi janner. I have a 1938 Lister d 2hp 1000 revs, how do i know what parts are original and what's not, I also have a 1945 Lister d 1/2 hp 700 revs for spares. the hopper lid on the 38 is cast with casting numbers on the top and has a chamfered edge round the opening ,the 45 has a straight machined opening, the rocker cover on the 38 breathes at the side the 45 has dome shaped breather on top, both have sr1 magnetos,i have no silencers at all,need to know the correct one, for the 1938 deep or shallow. I want to strip down and rebuild the 1938 one over the winter, and want to get it looking like it should do for that year.the engine number is 140848 18D2H HP2 1000 RPM. I bought a Nigel McBurney book on Lister d type restoration at the Dorset steam fair to keep me wright on the technical side of things. I am retired diesel mechanic . any help on the correct parts for the engine of that year would be grateful. wilson.
