Hi Everyone

updating tasks: the basket is full, I think i'll need another one to store parts already painted of  the 12/2.

And a courtesy of Jim Perkins to send me 3/16 round bar.

Hi Everyone

I'd like some help with a question: look at the pic first.

The Lister manual points that the oil thrower ring has that direction, but in my 12/2 it was flipped, and I think was in original position, because it had original green paint.

Opinion are wellcome

Cheers

Hi JD

It's a 12V compressor, I think!

And the seller think it's gold plated.

Hi Bob

Don't be worried with the duty. I'm not a patrolman (daily basis!). I lead, as graduated rank, a team of logistics branch in my station, and by work schedule senior duty officer.

Only summertime duty is toughest due to safety and security in beachs.

One day at a time...

Take care of your hand!

Cheers
VP

PS: Don't forget I must travel 170km*2 to meet my 12/2 everytime, because it's seated in the village [and mainly give a good hand to my octogenarians].

some more pics...

Sump is "reading old news".

The 55kg each wheel.

And the basket to amuse next days...

Thats all for now.

Have a nice week.
VP

PS: crankshaft center bearing nut is 1.5/16" socket. Another headache... and too hands inside is too much.

Hi Everyone

Strip down goes on.

But, first in the morning I got to make a 2" spanner for pipe fiting, to unfasten and fasten conical bits, of "another" italian water pump. This one looks really a piece of cutting edge engineering. See pic.

After that take the 12/2 apart. This time Stef's method works. 2 wheels off.

Both camshaft end cover off. And a very interesting thing is the left cover has 5/16 studs and... 5/16 BSF format nut.

Hi Everyone

It's all most done...

Some more fine tuning, and trolley.

Cheers
VP

PS: Bob, I'm asking everywhere for an old alternator ~2,5 kva with pulley, and the answer is: thats very old and therefore goes to recycle. So by now is just to showoff.

Hi Everyone

Further developments:

Trying Stef way to pull off flywheel in 1st Petter and not moving a mil. I'll try again Jim Perkins way, but - always a but - fist withdraw last 3 srews of main bearing housing, and for that I must buy a 5/16BSF socket.

For 2nd, the last part is done to fire it up. fuel injection pipe cooper plated. beautiful...

Next, bleed and crank... I'll try to make a video.

Cheers

Hi Bob

Thanks for your appreciation. Indeed it's not a race, because I have to fulfill my daily job, and you must take care of your hand.

I'm enrolled to recover both, maybe after I'll sell one. Lets see how things go on.

Cheers

More 2 pics from 1st...

2nd PAZ1 - was destined to give parts to the 1, but in the end was in better condition, and was easier to disassemble. Now it's almost set up to work.

Nothing like some pics.

Cheers

Hello everyone

Let me give you a brief summary of the last parallel tasks I have been involved with:

1st PAZ1 - it's being a headache, gibkey broken with the wedge, 2nd attempt with threaded rod and it jumped out. Now I urgently need a 5 / 16BSF socket to remove the crankshaft (main bearing housing).

To be continued...
