Hi Everyone

Sump/block came down to prepare to paint.

112kg of British cast iron! casted on 24JUL57.

Cheers
VP

That is one nice casting, I just looked at some other pictures and the flywheels and other parts are nicely casted as well. It’s going to be a very nice engine.

Hi Everyone

While 12/2 still in shop to fit new valves, I amused with small things.

Most of all giving a hand to my parents threshing corn of their small production (primitive white corn, to make white corn bread);

and... sniffing arround I found a small 2-stroke engine in my old manīs scrap drum that belonged to a sprayer knapsack.
After stripped all down, It's working very good, see here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mhexOk7vQW1AQpAYV5YpRUoPVmZ5lf2a/view?usp=sharing

Some pics to help those don't care about reading.

Have a nice time
VP

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - antiques show and a lost soul
« Reply #212 on: September 14, 2019, 11:40:25 PM »
Hi Gentle

One saturday in the village, with a tour to the antiques show in the county town.

I was told that in the old mill - which in the past was water-powered - had an old stationary engine there, but it must have been badly damaged over time.

I took a look, and it in reality was stripped and stolen, it lefted only the block, with the flywheels, and the crankshaft already rusted. see the pictures. It is a 12/2 of 1957.

And there were 2 Listers, one 8/1 of 1961, and another 12/2 of 1953.

I felt embarrassed by the description on the board. take a look: the board states 1938, but the serial plate states 1953.

"Anyway, who doesn't know is like who doesn't see!"

And I'll bet it never came out of the factory with that air filter either.

Hi Everyone

Fall season are times to doing crops, and today was grapes crop, starking apples are also mature, and the olives are getting pretty.

Here are some pics of the crop, grape crusher, and one with our work horse a ISEKI 1910 of 1980 (in my hand since day 1).

@ Sirpedrosa;
Nice harvest! here it's also that time of year. potatoes, onions, garlic tomatoes, apples, pears, peaches, and even some grapes. An apparently smaller garden than yours, but it really keeps us busy. No tractor, just hand work.
A new driveway is awaiting......... A dumper brought yards of gravel two days ago. Now it needs to be spread......wheelbarrow, shovel and rake. Wish I did have a tractor, but.......
Cheers

Hi Hugh

That is in the village... because nearby my home in city (left bank of tagus) is also all by hand, but it's only to "exercise the laziness".

By the way please tell if you know where this company: http://catalog.daemar.com/item/dmr-trade-keystock/rectangular-keystock/0-313-563-12
If so, let me know.

Cheers

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - HEADS READY
« Reply #222 on: September 21, 2019, 02:33:27 AM »
Hi Everyone

New valves seated, heads skimmed, measures taken and cylinders top sanded.

Next task: cutting joints to main bushes, and start putting parts in place.

Have a safe day.

@ sirpedrosa
Daemar, the company you asked about has Canada locations in Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, and Vancouver.
Vancouver is closest to me, but still a few hundred miles and 3 ferry rides from here. Also in USA
Looks like a good source of bushings, keystock, shims, etc.
Cheers

Hi Everyone

Some more improvements today, cutting a bunch of joints to fit main bushes, fit felt washer, and tuning crank shaft end play.

Fitting idler gear - marked inside, as well as camshaft and crank pinion, so we can time it from inside.

Some pics, for the enthusiast.

Cheers
