Hi All

Nothing like a sweaty evening to tighten the central bearing of the shaft.

Some pics for enthusiasts.

Cheers.

PS: remember wrench lever I made before?

Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - one more visit to the beast

Hi Gentle

Who can confirm to me the torque of the main bushing nuts.

I found this table: http://www.oldengine.org/members/diesel/Articles/rrchapt8.htm

But I think the values are tabulated for R-grade, and the original studs should not be R-grade, because the torque wrench was already 60ftlbs, and I don't think they could handle 70ftlbs.

Well, the connecting rods are already in place too ...

Cheers

Hi Gentle

Some more steps.

Con rods are in place and torqued.

Oil manifold too. Take a look at blind snuggle and tighten of oil delivery pipe! It's not easy with that french wrench!

Be happy

Hi Gentles

the "greeny" is growing.

Straightened oil pipes (I mean more curved) and starting to set bump clearance.

Cheers

Re: Resurrection of a Lister 12/2 - the beast is getting up

Hi All

Some more twiking in the beast, fit cylinder joints to set height, tin to set bump clearance, ready to torque.

Loosening nuts and measuring clearance.

Now I got to do math.

Have a good weekend
