Engines / Re: Black smoke from TS3

Thanks very much! When I get some time to spare i'll have a go at this and report back.
 Will check and set the tappets at the same time too, do you know if they're .15mm like the TR series in this manual?

Rings would be the first thing I'd look at.

Most likely is over fueling. If no luck with that try loading the engine up by putting it under load and run up hill to make the engine work hard and run it like you hate it while loaded. Possible glazed bore could also be considered.

Both would cause engine oil to be burned, this would create white smoke. Overfuel = black smoke.

It does sound as it its getting too much fuel when you open the throttle. The engine is fitted with an overload stop which need to be set up. I've enclosed a copy of the parts book page and it's item 22.

Thanks, i'll look into it.
Do you know how to adjust it and where to find a workshop manual for this engine?

Engines / Black smoke from TS3

Hello all,
I've recently bought an old dumper which has a Lister Petter TS3 in it.
It seems to fire up and run well enough, but does bellow out black smoke when it's accelerated. It's not the air filter
AFAIK this means it's over fuelling, but what would cause that? Is there any adjustment on it?
