Engines / Re: Lister AD1 not stopping on stop lever
« on: November 03, 2019, 08:04:39 PM »
I once had an AC1 with the same complaint.
I removed the crankcase breather hose and fitting, lifted the flat rubber disc, and beneath that is a fitting with multiple holes. I screwed this out using a snap ring pliers inserted into the holes and turned.
Looking through the hole I could see the top of the arm that moves the rack, and as I moved the Stop/Run lever back and forth I could tell that the pivot rod for the arm was bent slightly in a way that prevented the rack from closing fully.
The pivot rod is quite soft metal, and I simply took a screwdriver and hammer and Carefully and Gently tapped the end of the rod in the direction that it needed to go and that solved the problem.

Thanks I will take a look

Itís baffled me

Thanks for replying

Hi All

Got the AD1 running after swapping over piston and cylinder from donor engine but once started it will not switch off by pushing lever from "run" to "stop" position, any ideas on what the problem could be?

Hi Cobbadog

Not quite running yet, freed off the pump and thought it was pumping but ran out of puff swinging it over!
Are you the same cobbadog with the liner roughrider dumper from classic machinery?

Hi All

First post and a bit of a long winded one but if it helps somebody else then its worth it!
I bought an old stothert and Pitt roller fitted with an AD1 Lister which cranked over and had good compression but had not been started for about 5 years, troubleshooting indicated no fuel out of the delivery side of the pump and after stripping to down to access the bryce pump I could not get the pump out, downloaded a manual from petter and followed the steps, tdc and run lever in 10* of centre and it would still not come out! Brain idea, ill buy another engine and just swap them over, exactly the same thing with this Lister AD1 which is ex military with cold start primer on, took the side cover off which exposes the timing gear and the stop run lever was not moving the rack, few gentle taps with a bar and hammer and the rack moved into the middle enough to allow the pump to be drawn out, first lister I've worked on and it was a real head scratcher as no one mentioned that the rack could be stuck to the side and without stripping off the side I would never have known as the stop run lever was moving through full rotation.
Hope this helps somebody and I'm sure i will be back on looking for more help
