Engines / Petter PH2 engine
« on: August 21, 2018, 01:49:57 AM »
Hi Guys,
I have been asked to try and find out the age of this engine that is in a Dumper truck it is a 2 cylinder Petter PH2-67055 rated at 18HP @ 2000rpm . This is the only details I have of the number so far. Hopefully this is enough to find out the age.
Thanks in advance, Cobba.

Things I want to Buy / Oil Pressure Gauge
« on: June 11, 2018, 05:49:01 AM »
Hi guys,
I just bought a new toy to take to Rallies and after about a month of research I now know the make and model of the little dumper. It is a Liner - Roughrider 1250kgs that runs a twin Lister diesel model # 2917SR2A25 rated at 13.2HP @1800RPM. Everything is in good condition but I would like to find an oil pressure gauge to suit it. The original connects just above the oil filter and the gauge sits against the crankcase cover.

Are these still available and if so where from?

Is there a way of estimating the year model of this engine? I think the dumper is 1971 but not confirmed and I hope that the engine number may confirm or help with it age ID.
Thanks for any and all replies. John

Lister Based Generators / Lister CD 8hp
« on: October 31, 2015, 05:40:56 AM »
Hi Guys,
I have had this great little engine for a few years now and it is time to get it up on a transporter to make it easy to move around and take to rallies. I have almost finished the transporter and its nearly time to mount the engine onto it. My engine originally was a generator set off a farm about 100 kilometres away but now has no generator. Going by the serial number it was built about 1947 and has a letter M in it which may mean it was a marine engine. This also has a radiator for cooling as I was told it is a 'high speed' model (1200 rpm) and also originally had an external oil tank and ran as a dry sump arrangement. I now need an external oil tank to complete the set up and need to know details on this tank like size and quantity of oil to be held. Hopefully someone out there can help with the sizes or a tank here in NSW Australia.
I have had the engine running by putting some oil in the sump and clamping a flexible hose from the high pressure outlet to the return line. This does work for a short time but then the pressure gets too high for 3 utilux clips to hold the hose in place and then everything within reach gets a dose of 'rust proofing' diesel oil.
Thanks in advance for any further information.

Engines / 8hp CD Lister
« on: May 21, 2014, 06:12:59 AM »
We have a 8hp CD Lister that starts and runs very nicely but I need to attach an external oil tank to this engine as it was originally. This has the twin geared pump behind the flywheel and all the pipe work and valves still in place and now I am looking at getting a tank made I need some advise as to what height this should be mounted. One picture I have seen for our engine shows the bottom of the tank should sit just above the height of the oil pump, is this right?
