After some coupling of cables etc. I tried to fire the machine with manual way ... some smoke, but no success. Then I mounted accumulator and connected all electricity on place and switched the SOM to Auto -position. Connected some drill to load and "ta-daa" .. machine fired up. Some quite black smoke one minute or two and then black smoke disappeared ... letting the machine to run some 30 - 45 minutes and seemed like everything is ok.

Next day I fired it up again and wondered, how black smoke was going on and on ... after some 15 minutes the engine stopped and after that, it is very difficult to fire it up again.

Very heavy black smoke and the engine just tries and tries to fire up, but no success. Next thing I quess, may be reason to study, in what condition the fuel pump and injector is at the moment. Any better/good advice you guys? Should absolutely check somethinbg else, or???

Still so far, I am very happy with my machine .. some exchaust pipes etc. needed. but absolutely I am on the way to get electricity to my cabin.

According to good advices, I mounted my Lister on wood blocks and tightened them to concrete floor with heavy bolts. Hope that machine will stay there :-)

Hi folks,

During summer, I studied my "new" Lister with available documentation and tried a bit clean and refurbish the machine a bit. After some cleaning and painting, my SR1 looks like this.

Try this one... easier to read the fine print -


Any possibilities to get that mentioned document "Diagram E9840256 is on page 8". I did not find that from those ols, maybe closed galleries and that is why, I ask kindly if you might sen me one copy ...or even whole manual if you have one :-)

Many thanks in advance


Hi pro's  :)

Now after doing many hours of maintenace and "cleaning" plus painting, it seems like I'm gonna mont the engine to my brand new generator room.

I have read lots of documents about vibration possibilities etc. and that is why, I kindly ask if anyone of you has real and experienced knowledge, how to mount the engine in a proper way. Directly to concrete floor with heavy bolts, some wooden stuff in between or possible rubber vibration absorbers under the engine.

It will take between 1-2 weeks and I will be asking my neighbour to lift the engine with a tractor into my room. That is why, I ask this info and appreciate any valid knowledge into this.

Also I promise to send some pictures of my project when I proceed with it.


PS. my generator room floor is 1.7 m x 1.9 m and thickness of the floor is about 12 cm. So, quite heavy and solid, I think :-)

Hi guys,

Earlier in this site I explained, that I have bought  a Lister ST2 with 3 kw generator head. Closer look when fetching the machine, showed, that the engine is SR1.
Now I seem to miss a Workshop Manual or even thinner one for this SR1. Anyone here maybe having a copy of it or having that scanned some how.

If possible, I'd like to get one and willing to pay some for it. The plant was in quite bad condition, but hoping to clean it and after then, looking how to resque it
into better condition. If the mail server in this site is not working, you can contact me by mail karimuru@gmail.com.

Thanx in advance ...

Hi folks,
I am newbie in this forum and just having bought Lister ST2 with start-o-matic inbuilt. Getting the system in some weeks from now and actually looking after some manual concerning that automatic Start-O-Matic. Maybe it might b wise to have manual, which is named here "312/1052   Start-o-matic   Instructions & Spare Parts book.

How could I get that manual?
It is really nice to find such sites and start discussion back and worth in various things around old machines. Nice to get into this.
