General Discussion / Re: Hurricane update

I hope the federal and state governments in the US are better than ours in Australia.

I don't know if they are any better or worse. Some are definitely opportunists.  FEMA tends not to mess around and usually gets to work pretty quickly. I am also guessing Florida local and State governments having been through this so many times are likely well prepared. The Florida Governor is also a sharp one who seems to be on top of it.

I also think the good old "American Spirit" really shines during times like these. Having been through several hurricanes myself a little further up the East Coast it always amazes me how everyone turns out to help each other and people from other states show up offering any assistance they can. There are usually church groups and fraternal organizations as well as the Red Cross that show up in droves.

Good to hear Gary. Glad you guys made it through relatively unscathed. Sounds like the West Coast has got a long road ahead though.

Your youtube links aren't working. Gives an error.

I think these should work:

Nicely done! Looks like the prize at the end was well worth the effort. Looking forward to seeing if you can bring it back to life.

Everything else / Re: Heat sand to 400F

Calrod heater would work as well. Very similar material to what you posted but can be shaped. Sand has some insulative properties so multiple heating elements would likeky be necessary.

This is my impression of the nomenclature:

Z Prefix= Direct injection
R Prefix= It appears this is the basic engine series/design class and without the Z prefix includes the "swirl" combustion chamber, guessing that means indirect injection
No Suffix= Hopper Cooled Hand Start
N Suffix= Radiator Cooled with belt and fan
L Suffix= I believe this includes a headlamp
M Suffix= Electric Start
F Suffix= Air Cooled

There also appears to be reference to:

S Prefix= This is a different but similar engine series. This series gets larger in displacement than the R series.
B Suffix= Hopper Cooled

I will update this if I find anything else or if anyone else knows any other nomenclature on these engine.

That's an intersting flywheel. Can't imagine Lister fit an electric starter. Used to drive a piece of machinery?

As an aside we sure are seeing who has no buisiness living out in the country. The crying on social media is unbearable.

Lol. Have the threats and demands started yet?

Is the pdf version of the indian engine buildup A-Z version still here? I may have missed it somewhere. Thanks.

I think the camshaft pdf in the first post is all that was salvaged. I don't remember ever seeing the bulk of the info from that thread salvaged and available as a pdf.

Welcome back Bob! Good to hear things are looking up. Looking forward to seeing your shed build and what the next chapter holds for you guys.

I completely understand what you mean about storing things just because you won't let them go. I recently came to that conclusion myself and am starting the process of getting rid of some stuff,  much of it needs to go. It really is amazing how much it weighs on one to have tons of stuff accumulated that serves little or no purpose.

Best of luck!

Wow! Standard CE is about 1400 lbs and the marine version which that looks like it may be is about 1800 lbs. That would be a bear to drag out of there.

Upon further inspection the fuel pump set up looks like a CE as a CD has a single bosch style pump. CD are single cylinder CE are twin cylinder, same engine family. Never seen one in person but they look to be about twice as heavy as a comparable horsepower CS. Wouldn't mind having one to play with. I think they are 14-16 horsepower.

Is that Chinese symbols of the valve cover ?
See if you can scrub away the rust.

Looks like it says Lister but upside down in the photo to me.

Looks like a CD or CE from the one photo. More pics may be able to narrow it down. There should be a tag on it somewhere.

Here is one for the LR and SR albeit for the marine versions but should still have a lot of useful info.
