Yes a 15W40 oil will be quite acceptable, you need to keep clear of the synthetic and semi synthetic versions, as these are known for glazing up cylinder bores on these engines.

Can you find out what the top end overhaul comprised of, and if new rings were fitted did the cylinder bores get honed at the same time to remove the layer of glazing and to provide a nice honed surface for the new rings to bed into.

How easy does the engine start, as this would indicate if the piston rings are worn, thus causing the oil loss.

Other options are worn valve guides.

Could also be glazed up cylinder bores due to incorrect oil grade or long periods of engine idling.

Has the oil consumption suddenly started or has it been doing this for a while? If as you suggest this has recently started, the least cost option to start with is to change the oil [and filter if your feeling generous] to a suitable grade and give it an 'Italian tune up' i.e a good thrashing. This should improve the situation if the bores are glazed up.

Let us know your findings and report back.

^ Update, I looked out the PC con rod yesterday.
Its in good condition, and even comes with fair condition STD piston and rings. Piston rings may be good to go again if carefully cleaned up, as I tried them in a Petter AC1 cylinder barrel (also 3" bore) and the ring gaps looked acceptable.

The con rod also has a set of big end shells which are also in reasonable condition. Only problem is they are -0.010" undersize. Let me know if your interested via PM.

See this item presently on ebay UK:

Only problem is the piston is +0.030" oversize.

Also PM me as I have a used complete connecting rod.

If the cylinder liners are tight in the block then why not skim the tops off the cylinder block to correct the problem, then either:

Use more bumping clearance shims to compensate for the material removed, or

Remove a corresponding amount from the tops of the pistons.

If your still interested I have some BACo (British Alumium Company) pistons available in +020 and +060 oversizes that I would be prepared to sell.

Yes that's a Petter BA engine for sure. Your best bet is to keep an eye out for ebay listings, as these manuals appear on there quite often.

Good engines when they are looked after, but they are not tolerant of abuse. Depending on who you talk to they were widely thought to not be the best engine Petters made. Many advanced features, including metric thread forms on all the fasteners.

Early versions were prone to head to cylinder barrel leakage (no head gasket). Petters redesigned this aspect but it still didn't totally cure this problem.

If your still looking for a camshaft, here is what seems to be a good used example:

Ask this ebay seller:

As he has loads of new parts for Lister D. Get back to me if he has and I will PM you his phone number.

I think some engines didn't have a Z, but rather had an A for anticlockwise, like his engine.  My clockwise rotation SR2 has no suffix letter

Apologies for any confusion but the Z made an appearance when Lister became Lister Petter. The SR range was before the LP merger. Looking at your pictures your SR is Anti clockwise rotation ( the style of bellh ousing is the dead giveaway)

OP, your still going to need that spacer between the bell housing and starter motor I mentioned in my previous post.

I can see the image:

Yes from the picture, that looks to be what to be what your looking for.

However, be aware of the following:

1) Ensure the direction of rotation of the starter motor is correct, as Lister's definition of direction of rotation has caught many people over the years (NOTE! If your engine serial number has SR2A, the A indicates anti clockwise rotation)

2), You will need a spacer to go between the starter motor and bell housing, like so:

 This is for the HA series that use the Lucas CA45 starter motor, but the general shape is very similar to the SR engine.

3), Finaly confirm that the number of teeth on the bendix is correct.
