Original Lister Cs Engines / Molasses rust removal
« on: December 25, 2016, 12:42:41 PM »
If anybody wants to remove rust from rusty Lister parts, mix up a molasses / water mix and throw your rusty parts in. It really works !

I use a strong mix about 1 part molasses  to 4 parts water but 1 to 10 will work but its slower . Molasses is easy to buy from farm stores, its a stock feed supplement .

I picked this up at a Hamfest for 10 bucks . It might be a handy thing ..or not  ::)  Problem is it runs from 120V AC .

Lister Based Generators / Lister 40hp
« on: March 21, 2016, 11:47:29 AM »
I was at a farm clearing sale last Sunday, old tractors like a steel wheeled Farmall etc and 40 unrestored stationary engines , some really old petrol Listers . Most of them sold for $100 to $200 . Many of them had parts missing .

There was a old 1940's ? 4 cyl ( or was it 6 cyl ) diesel Lister 40HP driving a big alternator , it was housed in a large shed sitting on the ground . A International bulldozer . I bought a box of NOS oil seals for $10 , must be 50 in the box .

Listeroid Engines / Safety issues
« on: April 26, 2015, 11:08:47 AM »

Has anyone built a safety cage or barrier around their Listeroid ?

The large flywheels are rather dangerous things in a small building.

If anyone fell on top the running wheels , the result would be death or serious injury .

Any thoughts   Mike

Listeroid Engines / Listeroid and Lister parts exchange
« on: February 16, 2015, 07:15:37 AM »
There are always a few original CS Listers for sale over here but the supply of original Dursley spares has dried up .

My question is :

Do the Indian made parts fit a original Dursley CS ?   I refer to the Piston, rings, rod bearings, valves , con rod and other bits

Maybe somebody could make up a list of Indian made parts that do swap over to a Dursley CS


Listeroid Engines / Jkson 6/1 rebuild
« on: January 16, 2015, 10:32:17 AM »

I thought I would start a new thead as I began to tear down my Jkson today . Firstly , the gib keys just fell out with almost nil effort from the puller . The keys were just sitting there doing nothing  ???

Anyway , the flywheels came of very easily . I measured the shafts and there is a .001" difference in the two sides  ??? One side is 1.9995" the other side is 1.9985" . Indian standards maybe  >:(

I noticed that the gib keyways in the shafts are roughly machined   :-[  Hmmm  I will need to clean these keyways up

Listeroid Engines / Air cleaner

We all know that the air cleaner supplied with the Listeroid is a joke , all it can stop is large stones  ???

Any ideas for a replacement ? Mike

Listeroid Engines / pics

pic of the crankshaft of my Jkson 6/1

cant see any sand or grit, the inside has not been painted

One thing that worries me is, the bore does not have honing marks, I cant see any in that pic .

Listeroid Engines / base dimensions
« on: November 22, 2014, 09:06:43 AM »

I am currently making the concrete base for my listeroid and I am planning on using 15mm bolts/studs  in the concrete . The bolt pattern on my listeroid is 331 mm square , or  13" .

Listeroid Engines / Gib key protruding
« on: November 04, 2014, 08:14:23 AM »

My gib keys protrude from the hub . Is this OK ? Seems to me that the keys are not all the way into the hub ?

I am planning on pulling down this listeroid , giving it the clean out and check for sand and the rest of the problems

This is a new Listeroid out of the crate .
