Hi all, sorry I haven't got back to you all sooner. I managed to get it all working in the end, quite well actually. All it needed was a new plug. And it has been working for the last 3/4 weeks without a problem. However today it has decided not to play again. It coughs and splutters by doesn't go. It's a bit confusing as it was working perfectly well last week.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards

I'll have a go at what you have suggested. It's quite pleasing when it gets going, it's the getting going which Is the problem. You have mentioned a couple of things I haven't tried yet so I'll give them a go.

It wasn't my intention to not get the mag in the video, I think I got excited when I managed to get it running so I took a short video quick😁. I'm genuinely surprised I haven't taken any detailed photos of parts yet, I will from now on.

I'll give it all another look at when I'm back there with a fresh pair of eyes and give everyone's ideas a go.

Thank you both for your help.
I did a full rebuild of the carb apart from the butterfly valv in it as that looked ok and quick tricky to put together again. I replace a spring for the air inlet valve as the old one wasn't good and it was rusty. What is the correct spring tension roughly? I didn't replace like to like but it was close to the same size.

I believe the HT lead is copper cored but I need to get a multimeter on it to test if it's good. I'm not sure what type of ma we've got as it was donated to us however we believe it is Lucas type with a squareish body to it.

I'll try the few ideas you both suggested next week when I'm next at the museum.

I'll try to attach a video of it running here but if it doesn't work I will put up another reply here with a link to it.

Thank you for your help

Hi all.
I'm quite new here and to the world of lister in general.
I'm trying to get a museums lister D to work.
I've tried all sorts of ideas I've seen on the internet but cannot seem to get it running. I managed somehow to get it running for 10 minutes yesterday before I stopped it. But cannot get it running again.
We've got a new Champion D16 spark plug in which sparks nicely but sometimes doesn't when touching the engine. This could be an issue but I don't know enough on the electrical side of engineering to solve it.

The carburettor and float chamber have been stripped and cleaned up.

I'm running out of ideas quite frankly

The engine plate is shown as
N - 1/18489
Spec - 28 DH
H.P - 1 1/2
RPM - 700

Any help will be appreciated.
