Engines / Re: Lister engine leaking coolant
« on: January 06, 2019, 04:25:13 PM »

Thanks ever so much for the advice. I am heading over to the boat this evening to see if I can get a number off the pump and the serial number off the engine.

I will do a bit more like investing as how the water cooling on the engine is set up. I assume me itís not good to run the engine with this leak which drains the expansion tank?


Engines / Lister engine leaking coolant
« on: January 06, 2019, 11:31:09 AM »
Hi all I am hoping someone may be able to help me with regard to a leaking Lister engine.

Last year my sister who lives in Ireland bought a narrow boat. The engine in the boat is a Lister  liquid cooled engine with a 150 LH gear box attached. I cannot find a plate telling me the model of engine only a long number which I'm guessing is a serial number.

Recently I noticed the expansion tank was dry so it was filled up with coolant.  Within a few days it was dry again.  Yesterday  filled it again and looked for a leak and found one which is a constant drip.  This gets worse when the engine is run.  It looks like a gasket is gone as in the attached picture you can see the rusted bolt where the bras fitting attaches to the engine.

The part has two pipes, one goes off to a tank where the other goes into the engine. 

I am hoping someone may be able to advise.

1. What the part is.
2. How I find out the model of engine
3. Where I would get a replacement expansion cap as the one on it has seen better days.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
