 Hi Hugh,

I don't know how you found a genuine 6/1 in Canada but you did it.
I think I saw one for sale about 6 years ago and it sold in 1 day.
Cherish it.
Did you give it a clean and polish lately? Are you taking good care of it?   ;D

Beautiful !
Immaculate and spotless.
Where do the cooling lines run to? CHP or hydronic heating ?

Back to the original question....
This lab test shows that the optimal timing and injector pop pressure for a 6/1 Listeroid burning WVO is.....

Timing : 25 Deg BTDC
Injector Pressure: 15 MPa

Below is the report.

Mine leaked the same way. The only solution was to modify the sleeve protrusion.
I tried various gaskets and sealers but in the end they are just Band-Aid solutions.
The sleeve protrusion must be minimal. Say 0.003 to 0.005 in.

Excellent work spanner !
That should work great.
Maybe the weight of the Landy flywheel will help reduce flicker also.
That's where Lister used to put a flywheel on the start-o-matic models.

This is the video where the guy made the block itself.

Nope. That was not me.
Although my wife would argue that I'm not as advanced as I thought.  ;D

Smaller version of the CS6 for light duty applications....

One thing that they did state lower down in the article...

"All parameters point toward an optimized tuning of the injector timing at 25 BTDC with an IVOP of15MPa."

Original Lister Cs Engines / Unpainted Flywheels
« on: April 05, 2020, 05:03:26 AM »

I see many Lister CS engines with the outer face of the flywheel unpainted.
In fact some look like they were sanded, polished, and oiled.
Is there a reason for this? or is it maybe tradition. For an antique look ?

Sorry for the very late reply to to a comment made earlier in the thread,

mikenash stated:
Read my lips:  The fucking water is rising.  It's easy to measure.  Average annual rise last century was 1.4mm.

It's very easy to add cuss words and emotion to a statement in order to make it seem true and real.
The data that I have studied suggests otherwise.

Tide gauges all over the world are giving opposing trends. Florida shows some rising. Alaska shows the ocean level is falling.
Continental plates are moving all the time.
70% of the coastal major historical sites which once dotted the shorelines 3000 years ago are now under 70 ft (or more) of water due to natural rising levels resulting from glacier melt and tactonic plate movement.
We modern people think that we are somehow special compared to the hundreds of cities that have already been engulfed by natural sea rise in the past.
If man is dumb enough to build a city 4 ft. above sea level (most built in the 1600's or earlier before natural ocean rise was known) then they will succumb to the same fate as previous cities until the next ice age moves in and starts the cyclical drop in ocean levels.

Fort Denison in the Sydney harbor has one of the longest running tide gauge datasets in the world.
No remarkable sea rise is being recorded there.

Good question,
A few years ago I sold 2 Listeroids to a fellow who had been running wvo for 5 years in an older Lister.
He experimented with all kinds of stuff and he told me that when I start running WVO in my Lister I should "lower" my pop pressure a little bit.
That did not make sense to me so I didn't do it.
