Hello and a little help please :)
« on: October 09, 2017, 08:06:29 AM »
Hello form Somerset.

I have got myself a Lister 26DH to clean up and get going.

Spent some time freeing off all the sticky/seized bits as it has not run for apparently nearly 40 years....

A little bit of oil down the bore has bought back the near non existent compression.
Went through a load of other cleaning/checking before getting ready to see if it would run.

Cleaned up the points and checked for a spark.

Primed her all up and away it went :)

Not quite as smokey as I thought it may be after oiling the bore, but I had flushed everything through with some fresh petrol while cleaning the plug and turning the engine over for a while.

It cut out when warming up and I now seem to have lost the spark.

Is there a section in here that someone could point me to please, regarding an RS1 Magneto?
I think it's nicknamed the 'hovis top'.

Thank you.
