Looking for the above for my 1939 CS3/1.
Please, due to lack of funds will have to save up for these so im just checking avalability and price at the moment.
Im going to be runing on bio diesel most of the time. Would there be any difference in injector or pressure setting.
I havent got the engine stripped right down yet but i know that i need a set of rings and a gudgon pin and a gasket set so far and im sure im going to need plenty more yet !!!

I have loaded some pics to the Lister engine gallery but havent a clue how to get them here. I read through a post on how to put up pics but oh so complicated !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not computer savy. I have put pics up on other sites and it was so much eayser.
Why is it not possilbe to up load pics direct???
I think if you look on the Lister engine gallery under BKB 2KVA they should be there.
Ops! under my full name Simon Patterson not BKB 2KVA.

Generators / Help with a BKB alt
« on: January 01, 2013, 12:40:22 AM »
I have a 1939 CS 3/1 on an original Lister base plate that im restoring. The altanator that came with it is a BKB so not the original. They sit side by side and the alt was belt driven. The data plate reads AC GENERATOR,   Type CTRY,   Serial No.50497 /1,  Frame 640,    Eng DP,   Rating  CONT,   K.V.A. 2,    RPM  1500,    Volts 230,    Amps 8.7,    Hz 50,    Phase 1,   Power factor 1,

I would like to know if anyone has any information on this alt. It looks like it has done very little work as its very clean inside and the slip rings are as new. Im going to use it with the 3/1 to power the lighting in my workshop.

Engines / Re: how many ohms for lister b magneto
« on: December 19, 2012, 06:47:01 PM »
If its Lucas make then primary should be about 4 ohm and secondary should around 6000 ohm. Very low on primary is shorted turns and very high on secondary is open circuit.
This will apply to most magnetos but exact readings will vary.
Hope this helps

Things I want to Buy / Gib head key puller
« on: December 19, 2012, 06:27:50 PM »
Im looking to borrow a Gib head key puller from some one in the Republic of Ireland. I need to get my CS 3/1 striped down asap. Had keys in soak for the last two months and crankshaft and key ways  are in very good condition so should pull out easily.
Will cover all costs for postage etc.

Waste Vegetable Oil / Been Makin Bio Diesel
« on: December 16, 2012, 07:42:09 PM »
Hi All
Just started making bio diesel from 50 gallons of fairly clean fryer oil. It came in 2 gallon plastic juggs with all sorts of bits of "food" in it. Anyway iv filtered it through a bed sheet and left it in two blue plastc barrels to settle for a couple of weeks. Its a nice golden brown colour. After titration i found i needed 7.5 grams of lye to the liter. So i made 4 x 2liter batches and all seems well. I have a nice golden bio diesel on the top half and an almost black glycerin on the bottem.
I did 2x2 liter batches last week and left each batch in a cold room and the glycerin set like a dark brown wax on the bottem. I thought some thing had gone wrong with the reaction but no it was just the cold. This is actualy a bonus as it is so much easyer to get the bio diesel off the top as the glycerin is almost semi solid. Gave this small batch a couple of washes and fired up the house generator (Lister TR2A) on its main dino diesel tank and switched over to the bio diesel and switched everything on in the house This gave the Lister a very good load!!! Well, the exhaust smell was fantastic, like eggs and bacon frying !!! Needless to say i think this was a success followed by eggs bacon and beans for breakfirst!!!
The Lister generator set is new and not run in yet. We only have it as a stand by as the main supply is a bit er..... iffy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will be making more bio diesel next week as i may now power the house with it.
