Listeroid Engines / Re: listroids

In fact, there are plenty of original Dursley Listers in certain parts of the world - namely the U.K. or some former British colonies. They produced over 500,000 of them in 50 + years of production. They are quite scarce in other parts of the world - especially North America. They are expensive wherever they are scarce. The Indian Listeroid is a low-cost entre that can be a quite acceptable stand-in for an original Lister - especially if they are checked over carefully and reworked wherever the Indians have done sloppy work. Take a look in the Lister Engine Gallery linked to this site - many projects there with many different types of Lister equipment as well as the clones.

many thanks dieselgman

Yesterday at the California NASCAR race, I saw 9,000rpm on a tach :o; they must be highly stressing the valve train as well. Anyone use PTFE in their Roid oil? I use some in my rail 300MB diesel for many years.
i also have thought about a liquid additive for my lister. but read a review from a scientist and he said they do not do a lot. ptfe is Teflon now to get Teflon to adhere to a pan first a special primer is used then the ptfe is sprayed on and placed in to an oven at an extreme heat setting to get the ptfe/teflon to coat the metal. ps his words not mine. must admit if i thought i could spend 50 pound on an additive that worked i would buy it tomorror.

hi guys i have been informed that the lister ac1 was designed to be used as a marine engine. the ad1 was not because it vibrates quite a bit
i still do not understand why. any ideas guys.

Lister Based Generators / lister petter ac1/ad1
« on: March 17, 2014, 07:49:19 PM »
hi i have 3, single cylinder lister engines i was going to use one for my boat.
ac1 series 1
ac1 series 2
ad1 direct injection
ok i chose the ad1 7.5 hp however when started it vibrates quite a lot. so i fitted the ac1 series 2 which is smooth and has only a small amount of vibration and just 1 hp less
my question is why the big difference in vibration. there seems to be very little difference on the out side. ??? ??? thanks in advance. garry.
