I did support the shaft and hit the pin with a decent hammer , itís really stubborn, I have sanded the ends down to remove burring, now I will heat it and hopefully punch it out....
Where can I get replacement pins from, and do you know the degree of taper (I might need to make them ) .... ?

Iím hoping someone can help with removing the fuel lobe pin I know itís tapered and I tried punching it out from what appears to be the thin end and had no joy. I can drill it then punch the remenent but that is a last resort.... Any suggestions

Iíve got the cam out ok, the spool that slides on the cam is seized solid and worn, Iím going to remove the fuel pump lobe and the spool.. I will machine up a new spool out of mild steel, itís not a component that is under much load, Iíll check the cam shaft for straight whilst itís in the lathe...

I have been applying penetrant to the govenor and trying to move it on the cam with a hammer and punch, I am not making progress and Iím concerned that I will damage the governor... so I have decided to remove the cam... Question...... what holds it in ? I have removed the pushrods and raised the lifters out of the way, there is obviously a retainer or something holding it in...

Thanks Owenga....

I have carefully removed the governor housing and the shaft (not the cam) is seized,I can free that up but I see the mechanism that slides on the cam and the weights are stuck. Can someone tell me how to find the timing  marks as I want to remove the cam and get it all working so it will govern itself..

I have concluded from this that another CS that I know of has been retired because of over volt issues, Iím thinking it has similar problems and is just over reving .....
I look forward to some help with timing.......Daryl..

IT RUNS...... With a bit of coaxing she burst into life, the governor is seized but I kept the revs down with the control... 
question..... after 45years of storage the oil in the sump needs changing, what do we use for oil, Iím guessing lubrication has changed in the last 40 years..
Iím going to remove governor housing and carefully get the seized arm moving...
Iíd appreciate some advice on oil.... Thanks Daryl...

You guys are great..... I carefully worked the lifter up and down using the gap in flywheel and when I did get it out the roller was also seized!
Iím now wondering if I should proceed with mounting a fuel tank and starting it or would I be best to strip it down and rebuild it...
I also donít know how to set the controls to start it .. The fuel pump has a 3 position cam on the control rod, and I want to check that the governor is functioning so that when it does start it wonít over rev....
Thanks for helping me,, itís been great

Hi mike..
Thanks for that, when you say timing screw ,is that the screw and locknut on the lifter?,,   if so what does the big grub screw above the cambearing do

I started work on my CS6 , yesterday the lifter that works the fuel was jammed on the top of the stroke so I rotated the crank 180 and carefully tapped it down with the pump off, but it is tight so Iíll have to take the cam housing off and dismantle it.. Also Iím not sure how to set the governor etc to start.. I donít think Iíll use the SOM itís not in good shape. I should be able to find a modern belt drive alternator.... :)

Hi.. Firstly thanks for including me on the forum.. I have been given a C/S with a startomatic alternator the serial number is a bit hard to read looks like..   CS 93111  spec 5/9/35  hp6  rpm650 . apparently it was running fine when put into shed 40 years ago, and it still turns over although the box ontop of alternator has corroded away.. Any suggestions on how to go about restore [ im a maintenance engineer but not familiar with Lister }......Thanks  Daryl New Zealand...
