Listeroid Engines / Re: Metro Premium Listeroid

Thank you for good advice and solid logic. In addition to all of the reasons stated for not using pressure lubrication, which in fact was more accurately pump assisted splash lubrication in the first place, is that this is a stationary engine. I don't think I need to be concerned about oil starvation because of operating at an angle (e.g.. hillside). Simple is better.

Since I will be tearing this beast down completely; is it possible to add an oil pump, or has anyone here tried it. I would be much more confident in the long run if the engine were pressure lubricated. Even though the word "Premium" is written with raised letters in the crankcase casting, it seems that the only premium feature is the extra vee belt pulley and a water pump. Thoughts anyone?

Thank you all for your input! I can now see that this is going to be more complicated than just plug and play, which was the sales pitch I made to my better half (who is not very pleased with me presently) I think the best way to look at it is that it will be a 6hp, slow speed,  water cooled diesel. With the recommended effort to rid it of internal abrasives, and going through and correcting free play etc. Among the spares was an open gasket set, which I am hoping (dreaming) might indicate that some or all of the cleanup has been done. Of course as soon as I purchased it an 8hp Witte came up for sale! I will still be on the hunt for a true Lister CS, preferably SOM, and not from Portugal!

Regards, Dave

P.S. I will follow up with more pictures

Hi, I'm new to the forum, and Listeroid ownership. Recently this engine and generator head was for sale on Craigslist. For once the opportunity and the finances aligned, and miraculously it was less than an hour away. I would have far preferred an original Lister CS, but this engine has been only briefly run, periodically, and was within reach. It started right up, and since there was a list of interested buyers (I was first) I paid the asking price. It comes with extra OEM Metro parts, but no manual. If anyone has a manual, or knows where to locate one please pm me. I'll provide more pictures as the project progresses.
