I found a great home for the Lister

For sale is a Original Lister CS 12/2 Made in England, this engine was part of the Bob O'Riley auction 3 years ago. He purchased 10 Brand new engines in the early 70's and never opened them up. Only two were Twins and this is one of them. I have the original documentation, Wooden crate, and Lister wrenches that it came with. I belted up a new Kellogg compressor to help seat the rings and to start my larger Air start engines at a local show. I ran this engine very little and it has been sitting inside my shop since. The paint didn't hold up great and is pealing in some spots but could easily be touched up. It starts and runs great. I have two videos, one of the very first run in over 40 years and the other is last fall when I was testing the compressor setup.
-- I would sell just the engine with no cart for
Call text or email
I have almost 100 photos of the uncrating

Never ran

I can meet in the Fall Coolsprings show, or I will pack it up and drop it off at fastenall for 40 bucks.

I finally got the material all cut, welding jigs made, and the wheels are tacked together. I hope to have the undercarriage and steering components completed by the weekend.

Sorry for the delay i was busy the last week and a half getting ready for our wedding last weekend. I do still have it for sale. Im located in maryland us
Not sure if you have sold the unit. I own an original CS 10/2 which I restored about 7 years ago and looking for a single cylinder Can you tell me where about the engine is located. I am in Canada and interested but need to explore shipping options.  Thanks.


Sorry for the delay, I posted this then got swamped with work and truck problems. I bought a lot of my parts from either Ebay uk or sleeman hawkin.

I have recently got a CS6 and was wondering where you got all of your parts from? Im sure ill be needing some of the same.

I have a Original Lister CS 6/1 Im thinking about selling. I have been in the process of completely restoring it over the last year but can't seem to come up with the time to finish it and I could really use the funds for another project. I know my asking price is a little high but that's what I would need to get out of it in order to let it go, any less and I will just leave it in the shed and get to it eventually. So here is the details.
Lister block
Lister crank -.02 and polished
New main bearings,new big end -.02 bearings
lister connection rod new small end bushing
new gidgeon pin, piston and rings
Lister head decked .005 just to clean it up, new valves, springs and guides.
Lister rocker cover no cracks
NOS lister oil pump
NOS oil lines
Lister flywheels
Lister fuel filter
Lister jug, had some freeze damage and has been professionally repaired, bore is good.
.020 offset idler shaft
NOS injector line
Rare lister intake with the vertical ribs
Lister flat belt pulley
2 Lister radiators one is in great shape with the factory shrouding, brass tags, two lister fan pulleys and fans.
New bryce fuel pump
I bored and bushed the lifter galley for the fuel and oil pump.
New oil and fuel pump lifters
Lister crank case cover
 The Engine is almost completely assembled, the crank, rod,piston,rings, is installed, the head is on and torqued down, piston bump is set. Flywheels are not fixed yet I haven't finished confirming the timing.
$3500 for everything
Please no low ball offers.
Only trades I would even consider at this point would be A horizontal English built diesel. But I would prefer cash.

The JP series stands for (joint production ) which was with Ruston hornsby. Ruston made the larger castings like block crank heads rods pistons, and lister made/fitted the rest. There neat engines i had a jp3 for a few months but it was massive.  Ran good but smoked a little.

In this video you can see the mounting face I was talking about.

There is two types of air start systems on Ruston hornsby engines, but let me start from the beginning. Twin flywheel Rustons are considered more for agricultural/ farm use and single flywheel versions are industrial, the air systems are different on each. Look up Ruston grain elevator engine Mark CR/ 3XHR Mark CY/4YHR and you will see the air start valve on the head with a lever. That is the manually timed verision, also note on the side shaft side of those engine next to the governor the have a face machined into the casting but is not used on the twin flywheel model. On to the single flywheel industrial version ,one those there will be a cam bolted to the sideshaft that actuates an air valve mounted to the casting I refered to in the last sentence , from that valve there is a steel crossover line to the head and there is a check valve where it injects to the combustion chamber.

This a video of my single flywheel industrial engine with the cam timed air injection after I reset the timing.
