Engines / Lister lt1 fuel problem
« on: May 10, 2020, 04:57:05 PM »
Hi Guys and Gals
After some help please! I have bought another project, another dumper fitted with a Lister LT1 engine, I cranked the engine over after unseizing the gearbox selector and it spun freely but would not start. I removed the injector and attached and turned the injector around as well as the pipe to see if it was atomising the fuel, no joy, took the injector home and watched a YouTube video on how to free the pintle with a drill and all was good, went back down to the dumper and attached the injector with the same set up and still no joy, I put my finger over the delivery pipe and cranked it and there seems to be good delivery pressure from the pump as the diesel squirts out with my finger over the end, restripped the injector and when I put fluid down the pintle pushes it out the jets.
Now here's the weird part, I took the injector up to a road roller I have with a lister ac1 and attached it to that and the fuel could be seen atomising as it should!
Any ideas?

Engines / Lister AD1 not stopping on stop lever

Hi All

Got the AD1 running after swapping over piston and cylinder from donor engine but once started it will not switch off by pushing lever from "run" to "stop" position, any ideas on what the problem could be?


Engines / Lister AD1 seized bryce fuel pump

Hi All

First post and a bit of a long winded one but if it helps somebody else then its worth it!
I bought an old stothert and Pitt roller fitted with an AD1 Lister which cranked over and had good compression but had not been started for about 5 years, troubleshooting indicated no fuel out of the delivery side of the pump and after stripping to down to access the bryce pump I could not get the pump out, downloaded a manual from petter and followed the steps, tdc and run lever in 10* of centre and it would still not come out! Brain idea, ill buy another engine and just swap them over, exactly the same thing with this Lister AD1 which is ex military with cold start primer on, took the side cover off which exposes the timing gear and the stop run lever was not moving the rack, few gentle taps with a bar and hammer and the rack moved into the middle enough to allow the pump to be drawn out, first lister I've worked on and it was a real head scratcher as no one mentioned that the rack could be stuck to the side and without stripping off the side I would never have known as the stop run lever was moving through full rotation.
Hope this helps somebody and I'm sure i will be back on looking for more help
