I have just rebuilt the top end with new conrod, small and large end bearings, piston, rings, and a grind on the valves. New gaskets all around subsequent to a complete strip and cleansing.

The aftermarket radiator and pump seem to work well too.

It's ready to work!

Email or PM with inquiries.

$400 seems to be the standard shipping rate within the contiguous states from my locale. I am currently in WV/VA area. Pickup is an option and I can lift to load.

I have no less than 10 others in various states of repair (6-1, 8-1, a VA and a complete SOM Genset). Willing to deal on a bulk purchase.

PM me for details.

Oh...$2500

Nice looking and running original- with the grooved SOM style 25" flywheels!

Nice! A 1954 engine, for those for whom age is important... also formerly a Start-o-matic unit, which one can tell from the combined fuel-rack-closer/decompression lever arrangement, originally this would have been operated by a solenoid. I'm not sure if, at that age, Lister were indicating whether the engines were radiator cooled or not; if they were, then this engine was originally tank cooled (no "R" for Radiator in the serial number).... but that might have only been 1970-onwards. The other clue to this originally being a tank-cooled model is the lack of fan pulley on the inside of the radiator side flywheel.

Love the "fuel tank"!

Good luck with the sale, wrong side of the pond for me unfortunately, she sounds very healthy!
Cheers!
Ade.
