Original Lister Cs Engines / Lister camshaft
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:19:08 AM »
Hi Guys, I have read a great deal about camshaft inaccuracy on imported Indian clone engines.
 I have sent a lot of camshafts for regrind over the years and these guys know what they are doing. Armed with the correct geometry and some oversized lobes a camshaft could be assembled and sent to the machine shop for accurate grinding. The camshaft could then be dissembled and the lobes hardened and tempered or case hardened before reassembly.
Any thoughts? Could Gary or someone source oversized lobes?

Original Lister Cs Engines / Lister CS 6/1 as form of rehab
« on: December 03, 2017, 01:24:47 AM »
G`Day all from down under. (Northern NSW, Australia)
I have been a member for quite some time but have never posted before. A few years back I purchased a Lister ST2 SOM in very neglected condition. With a lot of help and parts from Gary at Diesel Electric she now provides back up for our home.
Last year I had a very serious car accident and have been undergoing rehabilitation ever since. In a slightly mad attempt to speed up this process I bought a Lister CS 6/1 yesterday. Serial number 1510616 (1956) crankcase casting number 25 A 56 so January 1956 I believe. Four years older than me.
It is my plan to restore this to as new condition and add a three phase generator head to power my workshop machines.
The CS is missing a fuel tank, cooling system, inlet manifold and filter, exhaust silencer and push rod. I will have to strip every part of this and examine them to compile a list of required spares. For now all I plan to do is cover everything in penetrating oil and let it soak in for a while.
I will post some pictures as I go and all advice will be very much appreciated
