Everything else / Water pump lubrication
« on: February 20, 2023, 04:30:12 PM »
Good afternoon all, just wondering if any one on here could point me in the right direction as to what lubricating oil those “domestic style” belt driven water pumps use? Im guessing normal SAE 30 but not 100% sure??
Thanks in advance

General Discussion / Lister LD1 oil ring
« on: December 08, 2019, 08:34:17 PM »
Evening all. Can anyone confirm that there should be a steel oil ring at the gear end of the camshaft (Not crankshaft) on my 1960 LD1 as there was one fitted behind the oil seal when i stripped the engine. I have heard it should be there and also been told it should not be there. I have checked the parts book and there is no sign of one there. Just need to be sure for when i put it back together. Thanks.

Good evening,

Just a quick question did the diesel listers fitted to cement mixers receive yellow paint as opposed to the more usual green?

Anyone had any problems with oil not coming out on to the rocker levers when running. I have oil coming up to the top via feed pipe but not out the oilways in the levers.

Got the LR1 out today and decided to giver her a run, however it started kicking backwards and when she did start billowed blacksmoke out the air filter?? So i shut it down.

It is a conventional clockwise rotation engine.

Why has this happened?

Good morning, checked the RPM of my LR1 Diesel and the tacho read 794rpm. However it is 750 on the spec plate. Just checking if it is ok to adjust it to 750rpm using the screw on the gear cover? Any help would be appreciated.
