Any garage that works on trucks would have a socket most of these guys are pretty helpful I don't think borrowing one would be difficult.

If you look at the amount of manuals on the internal fire page there's a lot of work involved. They ask only for a one time donation to access any/all of them.  For example I threw a few quid in the collection plate in church this morning, its a donation, you don't have to give anything and donating doesn't give you any rights to the internal workings of the church. I assume the money collected helps with heat light and maintenance etc same as a site needs money spending on it from time to time. I'm also a donor to the French car forum uk. I have uploaded a few manuals to dropbox my internet is slow and patchy so not ideal

Of course it would be easy to add a donate button for paypal. That goes to a secure off site web page nothing is stored on the sites server. I donate to a couple of mad causes without issue.

Chaps, let's agree to let sleeping dogs lie on this one, eh, before I get a moderation request and actually have to do something about it...

Apologies Ade!

Really? Fisticuffs? We are mature men that like old engines not chavs. WTF is wrong with you threatening a bloke because you disagree with what he says? That's real freedom. I read many things I disagree with hear loads of nonsense in many places but so what? If you don't like an author or journalist don't read his books or articles why come on here and set out to be offended and offensive?

I have a few genuine Lister CS's for sale I brought back from the UK. Various states of repair I and pricing structures. My posting/threads are on the board.

I have no intention of hijacking this thread and wanted to say as a small businessman and entrepreneur I wholly support Graham at Bolton in his endeavors!

It must be noted that Gary at DES has been top notch as many of us know.

Finally, I also wanted to note I have no humane ideas for dealing with a problem like glort...

Watch a little Australian TV and you will appreciate why Glort is out in his shed so much. Tinkering, fettling and thinking

I cant imagine Sleeman's will be cheap for a one off special tool. I would be inclined to leave the parts in a machine shop and they will fit it for small money. Plus if they fcuk it up they will have to do it again gratis.

My 2/- worth. I have been reading reams of information about Listeroids  Modern things made in modern factories have a limited use life and some 1500.00 phones have built in obsolescence what chance has an item made from recycled scrap by peasants  in a shed got of lasting 10, 20 even 60+ years? It has to be zilch.
I think if you want an old engine you either buy a good running old engine or buy and restore an old engine using genuine parts, spending lavishly as you go. I know there's guys than can buy a Listeroid pull it apart and  fix all that's wrong with it. These guys have experience often have a well equipped workshop and time. The average bloke wanting cheap reliable power can basically forget it with one of these things.

Kinda thinking what you would do Glort I took the alternator apart. One of the wires going to the slip rings had detached. I soldered it on (not great at soldering) and now it's producing 5 volts at the brushes. It's not making any power but I'm wary of the AVR and there is a new one winging its way to me from Scotland I'll update when it's here.
