Lister D push rod rod

Post by Mike Unwin on Wed Dec 07 2016, 21:30

Good day,
I am looking for a push rod for a early shaft drive Lister D it is about 10.75 " overall length , the later ones are 10.5 " and are too short if you have one for sale I would be interested .One would get me running . I am sorry for the confusion got mixed up with a measurement .Thanks Mike

I'm sure 0.5mm isn't that much of an issue.....

It is almost a 1/4 of a inch even with the screw turned all the way in the gap is far too much .Cheers Mike

Hi mike, you could always make up the different by using a valve cap, as I believe the early ones did not have them.

Thanks Richard I did some research and found some people with performance engines actually make their own push rods,I think I have a simple fix I put the lock nut under the rocker and the screw now adjust okay. Thanks the list of things to do is just that much shorter .Cheers Mike
